Do not fear!

1 Peter 3:14-16

But even if you should suffer for what is right,
you are blessed.

Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened.”

15 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.
But do this with gentleness and respect,

16 keeping a clear conscience,

so that those who speak maliciously against
your good behavior in Christ
may be ashamed of their slander.

NIV
