Sunday Snapshot… (WK1) Hope On The Ropes
One of the most frustrating things about being a Christian is when someone asks you a QUESTION about WHAT you BELIEVE! If you had fifteen minutes of their ‘undivided attention’ you’d probably be able to answer it - but what are you supposed to say in just a few seconds – when they don’t really want an ANSWER? So the question that remains is… How can you to defend your faith without losing your mind? (Let’s See…)
WHAT do you SAY when there's LITTLE TIME and LITTLE INTEREST!?
1 Peter 3:15-18 in essence says… You need to ALWAYS be PREPARED to give an ANSWER/DEFENSE to ANYONE who asks you the REASON for the HOPE that YOU have!
Peter didn't eventually give his life for what he BELIEVED... he gave his life for what he EXPERIENCED!
Selfless/Generous/Compassionate Living is UNASSAILABLE! (Meaning…) The way you ACT... is AS important if not MORE important... than what you SAY!
The Epicenter of our FAITH... rests solely in the FACT that JESUS WAS WHO HE SAID HE WAS... and HE DID WHAT HE SAID HE WOULD DO!
Here’s a Great Place to Start… “I believe that Jesus died for "MY" sin and rose from the dead!” (It's PERSONAL... it's MY Story... it's MY Hope... it's MY Defense!)
