1 Peter 3 - Key 2

v13,14

And who [is] he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?

But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy [are ye]: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;

I know that these verses, in context, are really talking about suffering for righteousness' sake, but I think we can learn something more general from them, too. I noticed v14b: ...be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled. v6b teaches women not to be terrified about things: ...as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement [terror].

Romans 8:31b says, ...If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us? We don't have to allow ourselves to be afraid, terrified, or even "troubled", by anything, while we are in Christ.
