Always being ready to make a defense

“but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence;”‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭3:15‬ ‭NASB‬‬

We are called to always be ready to give an answer for the hope we have in our lives. We live in a world filled with people who are hopeless. Their lives on a daily basis are overwhelmed by the lies and temptations of the enemy. Without Christ they are like a person who is drowning and struggling to survive. 

But as believers and followers of Jesus we have the answer. Jesus is the answer for everything we will face in this life. It is through His shed blood that we find forgiveness of sin and freedom. So many live in darkness and the harvest is great before us. 

Let us be faithful to plant seeds as the Holy Spirit leads. Let us water those seeds through prayer and intercession. Let us always be full of gentleness and compassion when we are asked about the hope we have. He is coming soon, let us be faithful to accomplish the purposes of God’s kingdom.
