1 Peter 3

“Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it.” v. 15

Some Christians believe that faith is a personal matter that should be kept to themselves.  It is true that we shouldn’t be boisterous or obnoxious in sharing our faith, but we should always be ready to give an answer, gently and respectfully, when asked about our faith, our life-style, or our Christian perspective.  The question we must ask ourselves is this . . . Can others see Christ in you?  Is there enough evidence by the way you live, not what you say, that would cause others to see that you are a Christ Follower?

Today, let examine ourselves and ask God to speak though our actions.  This might mean we have to ask differently.  If God exposes or convicts you of an attitude or an action, don’t be afraid to acknowledge that, ask for forgiveness, and start heading in a new direction.  Jesus, be with us today, and allow us to represent you to others.
