Message:  1 Peter 2:21-25  "Christ Suffered for You"

Peter just stated that we should live in such a holy manner we will silence our critics and then he says, "Christ suffered for us."  In this he is letting us know Christians will experience suffering at times even when our lives display Christ.  He says this because Christ suffered for us during His walk on earth and of course when He was placed on that cross.  The call to follow Jesus can lead to a life that suffering will come, just because you stand on biblical principles.  You and I will at times silence someoen by our testimony and have the chance to lead them to Christ, and other times the cold dark heart of someone will lead to a life marked by suffering.  Christ calls us to a life of reality not to a pain free life.
