“...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…” - 1 Peter 1:15
Are you prepared to give a defense? I’m not talking about going ninja when you get mugged, I’m talking about giving a defense for the “hope that is in you”. What is the hope that is in you? Well just as Paul said in Colossians 1:27 “...Christ in you the hope of glory...” Yes, the hope that is in you is Christ, what better hope could you have?
So, are you prepared to give a defense for your reason for Christ in you? Why do you believe what you believe, take a second to answer that....
Ok you had your second, what did you come up with, more importantly what would you have said to the person asking why you believe what you believe? Peter tells us that we must always be prepared for this question as it is the most important question someone could ever ask you. How will you defend the hope that is in you? If you cannot answer this for yourself, how will you answer when you are asked? If this is not something you can answer for yourself I encourage you to dig deeper and find the reasons and learn how to defend your faith.
