But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, 1 Peter 3:15 NIV
We have hope because we have invited Christ into our hearts. Others see that there is something different about us. They ask why we are so happy and peaceful when everything seems to go wrong in our lives. Peter says we should tell others why we have hope and peace. Share the good news that they too can have hope and peace in their lives by accepting Christ’s invitation. Show what He has done on the cross for each of us. Our sharing should be with gentleness and compassion. Others will want to have what we have. This is your opportunity to share the Gospel with them.
