“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.”

(1 Peter 3:15)

 


In the first century, Christians were accused of marching to the beat of their own drum even if it meant Undermining authority, of being an economic threat, and of condemning others.


Their accounts are a clear warning of the days ahead for Christians of the twenty-first Century. In 1 Peter, we are instructed to be real, to be ready, and to be bright lights in a dark world.

We must enthrone Christ as Lord. Often we hear people say they’ve accepted Jesus as their Savior, but we cannot have what He gives unless we accept Him as Lord.


Listen,we are not saved by the plan of salvation; we are saved by the man of salvation and His name is Jesus.

We must also be ready with an answer. If we have truly been saved, there will be something about us that is unexplainable; we must be ready to give a defense for our faith.

And we must practice genuine humility. Meekness is not weakness; it is strength under control.


• Have you enthroned Jesus as your Lord?

• How ready do you feel to give an answer for your faith? How might you become more ready?


Take time to write out your story of faith and how Jesus has changed your life.
