But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

God’s strength in our weakness – isn’t that a comforting thought? It should be if we’re honest! For we are weak and He is Omnipotent. And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will...
