Wherefore let them that SUFFER ACCORDING TO THE WILL OF GOD commit the Keeping of their souls to Him in well doing, as unto a Faithful Creator. 1 Peter 4:19. Whereunto I am appointed a Preacher, and an Apostle, and a Teacher of the Gentiles. For the which cause I ALSO SUFFER these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know Whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to Keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day. 2 Timothy 1:11-12. Yea, and all that will LIVE GODLY in Christ Jesus SHALL SUFFER persecution. 2 Timothy 3:12. THOUGH HE WERE A SON (of God), yet learned He Obedience by the things which HE SUFFERED; And being made Perfect, He became the Author of Eternal Salvation unto all them that obey Him; Hebrews 5:8-9. Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; AND THEM WHICH SUFFER adversity, AS BEING YOURSELVES also in the body. Hebrews 13:3. CHOOSING rather TO SUFFER affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Hebrews 11:25. For this is Thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, SUFFERING WRONGFULLY (suffering for that which you did not do). 1 Peter 2:19. For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, AND SUFFER FOR IT, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God. For even hereunto WERE YE CALLED: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us AN EXAMPLE, that YE should FOLLOW His Steps: 1 Peter 2:20-21. Who, when He was reviled, reviled not again; when He suffered, He threatened not; but committed Himself to Him that Judgeth Righteously: 1 Peter 2:23. Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same Mind: for HE THAT hath SUFFERED in the flesh HATH CEASED FROM SIN; 1 Peter 4:1. For it is better, if the Will of God be so, that YE SUFFER FOR WELL DOING, than for evil doing. 1 Peter 3:17. Still want to Follow Christ, and Eternally, Be Blessed?
