“But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; but sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear” 

1 Peter 3:14-15

Why do you serve God? Why is He your Lord? Why do you find Him worth waiting upon? Who is Jesus, and why did His sacrifice provide a way out for the world?

What are things you have experienced as you have walked with God? What are the things the Holy Spirit has opened your eyes to as you studied your Bible?

Answer these questions. Document these things. Study the Bible. Stay in prayer. Allow God to teach you Himself experientially, because in one way or the other, circumstances will arise that will ask these questions of you.

In the times you have just suffered a loss, you need to know why God is still good. In the times it seems you have waited too long, you need to have an answer for yourself, when the question that tempts you to leave comes.

In the times it is men asking you why you believe; sometimes, it is not enough to say, “The things of the Lord are spiritually discerned.” Have you studied your Bible enough to be able to break down your answers in a sensible manner by the Holy Ghost? These are things to consider.

Further Study: Colossians 4:6
Charge: Know God experientially. That’s the key to conviction and always having an answer.

Stay blessed
