Second Reading for the 6th Sunday of Easter Year A

1 Peter 3:15-18

Summary: Honor Christ in your hearts and be ready to explain your hope. Suffer for doing good if needed, as Christ suffered for sins to bring us to God.

Suffering for Doing Good

Beloved: Sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts.

Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope, but do it with gentleness and reverence, keeping your conscience clear, so that, when you are maligned, those who defame your good conduct in Christ may themselves be put to shame.

For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that be the will of God, than for doing evil.

For Christ also suffered for sins once, the righteous for the sake of the unrighteous, that he might lead you to God.

Put to death in the flesh, he was brought to life in the Spirit.
