Why do you love Jesus?

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

Has anyone ever asked you why you are a Christian? Why do you have a smile on your face even though you are going through a difficult time? What do you say? Peter says we need to be prepared for the hope that we have in our hearts because of Christ. You don’t have to give a long sermon on everything you believe. Just share enough to make the person want to hear more. Memorize one verse that gives you happiness that you can share. It could be John 3:16, and don’t forget to include verse 17. What about Romans 6:23?

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 1 John 4:10 NIV
