“But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,” 1 Peter 3:15 NIV
When faced with situations where my beliefs are put to test, we should be sensitive enough not to offend others but still hold on to our convictions. Will you teach about a subject that you don’t believe in? If you refuse to do sp, are you ready to give your answer? Are you ready to share Christ with others?
As Christians, we should not be quick to go into debate to defend our beliefs. Chances are, we should just drive people away. We should just let our lives be testimonies of God’s glory in us. When asked about our faith and why we’re so into God, then tell them the reason–that it’s because of God’s love for us. 🙂
What’s your reason for the hope that you have?
Father God, thank You for the hope You have given us through Your Son Jesus. May we always hold on to our faith in You and be able to draw people nearer to You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
