"Suffering for doing Good" 1 Peter 3:8-17 (Life in the Margins)

After speaking specifically to wives and husbands, Peter now address all of us with gospel implications of how we should respond when we suffer for doing good.   In the immediate context of this passage, Peter twice points to the example of Christ as one who suffered for the sake of righteousness (chapters 2:21 & 3:18). As we consider Christ’s example of suffering, what things come to mind?  How might His example inform our response to the gospel as people who may increasingly find ourselves in the margins?
