Once we have set our hearts on Jesus and confess that He is holy, our lives should change. We should have a hope in our future through Him and with Him. This hope may cause us to be excited. This hope may cause others to wonder what is going on in our lives. We may be asked to explain or defend our hope. When we share or defend the hope in our lives, we need to do it in a way that engages others and does not turn them away. When we share courteously and respectfully, others will be more inclined to join us in our faith and in our hope!
When given the chance, explain and defend your hope by giving a kind and courteous account of your salvation!
Thank You for giving me hope. When others ask, help me to explain and defend my salvation in a way that brings others into Your family. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
