Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened.” But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.
1 Peter 3:13-15a (NIV)
Do not be afraid of your enemies. Your enemies are God’s enemies, and they can do nothing to you unless allowed by His permission. Instead sanctify the Lord in your hearts through sincere reverence, trusting His faithfulness, submitting to His wisdom and giving Him glory.
