Jesus (John 16.33): “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have
trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
Peter (1 P 4.12-19): Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something
strange were happening to you. But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be
overjoyed when his glory is revealed.
