1 Peter 3:15 (NET) But set Christ apart as Lord in your hearts and always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks about the hope you possess.
Sandra: Why are you not bothered that he’s getting away with what he did?
Sophia: because I know he is not getting away with anything.
Sandra: but the Supreme Court has ruled in his favor. This matter is over sister, there’s nowhere else to go.
Sophia: people might escape judgment in this world, but if they only knew the truth, they would plead to be judged in this world rather than to have to face the matter in the age to come. People can escape human judgment, but no one can escape God’s judgment.
You see, everyone born into this world would never really cease to exist. We are spiritual beings that would still be very much alive and conscious in the next millions of years. Do you know the real reason people are afraid of dying? It’s because we are spirit beings and somehow we know in our hearts that what comes next after death is not certain. One of the deep things the salvation of Jesus does is to deliver people from that fear (see Hebrews 2:15).
It didn’t take Sandra too long to notice that Sophia understood something that she didn’t. Sophia had hope that transcended time, and she was able and ready to give an answer when Sandra asked about it. There is a deficit of hope in this world, and when people see that we have hope- a joyful expectation in spite of this imbalance and broken world system, they are naturally interested. Giving them a wise answer is important. Many souls can be won because of this.
Go into today remembering that you are an ambassador of Christ in this life. Being able to give an answer for the hope you have will be a product of applying your heart to knowledge, as you depend on the Holy Spirit to guide you into all truth.
Prayer: Lord, help me to always have the right words to say when I am asked about my hope in you. Help me to be a wise soul winner. Amen.
