Instead sanctify Messiah as Lord in your hearts. Always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you . . . 1 Peter 3:15, TLV
Have you ever been around a new parent or someone in love? They practically radiate joy and love and excitement. We want to be near those who have found miracles in their life.
In order for someone to ask about our faith, they must see evidence of it. Not because we spout Bible passages or doctrine, but because we have been changed in such a way that is intriguing to them.
What is our hope as a believer? Can we explain it? Not in “Christian-ese” but in our personal reality? How were we redeemed? Profoundly or sweetly or peacefully?
Each of us has a story that can impact the heart of another. Not by cleverness, but by true love. Love that radiates from us.
Who wouldn’t be drawn to that?
So be ready with your redemption story. Be ready to answer any sincere questions of a searching soul. Because He redeemed and answered us.
Instead sanctify Messiah as Lord in your hearts. Always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you… 1 Peter 3:15 TLV
