But dedicate your lives to Christ as Lord. Always be ready to defend your confidence in God when anyone asks you to explain it. However, make your defense with gentleness and respect. (1 Peter 3:15, GW)
In the hour that we live, it is more important than ever to know and understand what you believe. It seems that every time I turn around there is just one more law discouraging Christianity. I’m the kind of person who stays pretty quiet when it comes time to voicing my opinion, especially when I know that in doing so I will begin some form of controversy that I am likely not prepared to deal with. I do not want to be scared to have an opinion and I certainly do not want to hide my beliefs! I encourage you all today to be prepared when confronted with questions about your life and why you choose to live the way you do.
Prayer: Lord, let me be bold today. I know that as each day passes we are sticking out more and more because we choose to live separately from the world. I pray that you will help us to be ready when faced with questions about our faith and desire to serve you. In Jesus name, amen.
