A SUFFERING STANDARD
For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens.
~ 1 PETER 3:18
Jesus was executed as a criminal on a cross. Yet He was guilty of no crime—no wrong, no trespass, no sin. He never had an evil thought or spoke an evil word. His was the most unjust execution ever perpetrated on a human being. Yet it shows us that though a person MAY be perfectly within the will of God— greatly loved and gifted, perfectly righteous and obedient— he May still experience unjust suffering. Like Jesus, you MAY be misunderstood, misrepresented, hated, persecuted, and even murdered. Yet you must follow His standard.
