First Peter 3:15 says, “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.”
It is not enough for us to demonstrate our faith—we must also defend our faith. If someone were to challenge your faith today, would you be ready?
A man asked a woman, “What do you believe?”
She said, “I believe what my church believes.”
“Well, what does your church believe?”
“Oh, it believes what I believe.”
“Well, what do you and your church believe?”
“Oh, we believe alike.”
Suppose you witness an automobile accident today and notice a man dying on the asphalt. You run to help, and that man looks up to you and says, “Are you a Christian?” When you tell him that you are, he asks, “How do I get saved?”
What will you say? You don’t have time to get your Bible. And there’s not another soul around to help. What will you say?
The Bible tells us to be ready. Are you ready?
