BIBLE MEDITATION: ?But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.? 1 Peter 3:15
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: Be ready to give an answer when someone asks you about your faith. In seminary, we call this apologetics. Contrary to what you might think, this does not mean you are to apologize for your faith. Instead, ?apologeticsí comes from the Greek word that means to give a defense ? as in front of a judge. Can you defend your faith? It is not enough for you to demonstrate your faith, you must also defend your faith. If you ran into someone who was dying and he asked you to share your faith with him, could you? You need to be ready. You need to also be reasonable. You need to study God?s Word and know what it says about salvation, sin, heaven, and hell. Are you ready? If not, get ready today. There?s no better time.
ACTION POINT: Do you know why you believe? Do you know what you believe? If not, then it?s time you spent some serious time each day in God?s Word and asked Him to show you His Truth. Ask God to send you an older Christian who will disciple you, and commit to a lifetime of loving God and sharing His Truth with others. It is why you are here.
