1 Peter 3:14-16

14 But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled,

15 but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,

16 having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (1 Peter 3:14–16)

1 Corinthians 2:1-5
Proclaiming Christ Crucified

2:1 And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom.

2 For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.

3 And I was with you in weakness and in fear and much trembling,

4 and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,

5 so that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (1 Corinthians 2:1–5)

John 15:13

13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (John 15:13)
