DO YOU remember the last time you experienced sorrow, rejection or frustration while following Christ?

Those serving in First Nations ministry often suffer wrongfully, at the hands of relatives, friends and strangers outside of Christ, as well as other Believers, leaving them hurt, misunderstood and broken at our Fatherís feet.

TODAY, I INVITE YOU to pray with me that our Native people and those serving in Native Ministry, who endure pain for doing good, will be revived.

1 Peter 2:19-21 says "God will bless you, even if others treat you unfairly for being loyal to him. You donít gain anything by being punished for some wrong you have done. But God will bless you, if you have to suffer for doing something good. After all, God chose you to suffer as you follow in the footsteps of Christ, who set and example by suffering for you."

Ask our Creator to bless and encourage our First Nations people and those serving in Native Ministry, who endure suffering while serving Him.

ADDITIONAL SCRIPTURES (4 translations: The Scriptures, CEV, Amplified, KJV):
"The Scriptures" is a translation that includes the original Hebrew names and has the books in chronological order.  The Contemporary English Version (CEV) is a translation that is written for 'oral tradition' peoples and it flows well while reading it aloud.  The Amplified version is one where meanings of words and phrases are 'amplified' for better understanding.  The King James Version (KJV) is the translation that works well with Strong's Concordance. Please also note the links to Scripture in Cherokee.

1 Peter 2:19-21 - "For this is favour, if because of conscience toward Elohim anyone bears up under grief, suffering unrighteously.  For what credit it there in enduring a beating when you sin? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure, this finds favour with Elohim. For to this you were called, because Messiah also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps," (The Scriptures)
1 Peter 2:19-21 - "God will bless you, even if others treat you unfairly for being loyal to him. You donít gain anything by being punished for some wrong you have done. But God will bless you, if you have to suffer for doing something good. After all, God chose you to suffer as you follow in the footsteps of Christ, who set and example by suffering for you." (CEV)
1 Peter 2:19-21 - For one is regarded favorably  (is approved, acceptable, and thankworthy) if , as in the sight of God, he endures the pain of unjust suffering, [After all] what kind of glory [is there in it] if, when you do wrong and are punished for you, you take it patiently? But if you bear patiently with suffering [which results] when you do right and that is undeserved, it is acceptable and pleasing to God. For even to this were you called [it is unseparable from your vocation]. For Christ also suffered for you, leaving you [his personal] example, so that you should follow in His footsteps." (Amplified)
1 Peter 2:19-21 - "For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God. For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:" (KJV)
1 Peter Chapter 2 in Cherokee.
