22 May A Hope that Honors God – 5/22/20
1 Peter 3:15 – “ but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect”
In light of the great salvation we have received, God also calls us to give/defend the reason of our eternal hope to anyone who asks as a way to honor Him. What a blessing this is! Regardless of our situation, God calls us bless others so that we may be blessed (see v. 9, 13 & 14). May God give us the grace and boldness to preach his good news in love to everyone/anyone He’s placed in our lives, driven by our desire to please Him.
Prayer Point: Take some time to think of the unbelieving people that God has placed around you and ask God to give you opportunity to share the reason of your hope with them, in love, and for His honor and glory.
