Scriptures: 1 Peter 3:14-15 14But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats. 15Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it. (NLT)
Nugget: There are many challenges in life that we’ll face; these things range from judgment to defending our beliefs to more. What I’ve learned that if this is happening to us, Jesus definitely faced more! There’s nothing that we’re experiencing that He hasn’t experienced in advanced.
The importance of it all is to be ready to worship Christ in spite of what comes our way & to be able to give a reason for your hope as a Christian—Jesus Christ. Be ready to explain why He is the love of your life, why He saved you, what He has done for you…..there’s so much to name, but it’s never too much to know Him & to share your beliefs with others.
Quote: “The word hope I take for faith; and indeed hope is nothing else but the constancy of faith.” -John Calvin
