Suffering for His Glory

Nothing can reach us, from any source in earth or hell, no matter how evil,which God cannot turn to his own redemptive purpose. Let us be glad that the way is not a game of chance, a mere roll of dice which determines our fortune or calamity--it is a way appointed, and it is appointed for God's eternal glory and our final good.
~Elisabeth Elliot, quoted from Peacemaking Women, our current W.O.L.F Bible Study.
Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, butliving as servants of God. Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor....For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps. He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth. When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered,he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly. He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.

1 Peter 2:16,17; 21-24.
