View In My Bible
10 1As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good 2stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11 3Whoever speaks, is to do so aas one who is speaking the 4utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving b5by the strength which God supplies; so that 6in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, 7to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Share the Sufferings of Christ

12 8Beloved, do not be surprised at the 9fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you; 13 but to the degree that you 10share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that also at the 11revelation of His glory 12you may rejoice with exultation. 14 If you are reviled c13for the name of Christ, 14you are blessed, 15because the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. 15 Make sure that 16none of you suffers as a murderer, or thief, or evildoer, or a d17troublesome meddler; 16 but if anyone suffers as a 18Christian, he is not to be ashamed, but is to 19glorify God in this name. 17 For it is time for judgment 20to begin ewith 21the household of God; and if it 22begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those 23who do not obey the 24gospel of God? 18 25AND IF IT IS WITH DIFFICULTY THAT THE RIGHTEOUS IS SAVED, fWHAT WILL BECOME OF THE 26GODLESS MAN AND THE SINNER? 19 Therefore, those also who suffer according to 27the will of God shall entrust their souls to a faithful Creator in doing what is right.
