How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!
1 Peter 2:19
For it is commendable if someone bears up under the pain of unjust suffering because they are conscious of God.
