“Always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you” – 1 Peter 3:13-17
Evangelism is a way of life rather than something we do. As we live life on mission, we strategically position ourselves so that God can use us. We all have different gifts, interests, and opportunities. A student has such a different life from a mother of young children. Despite the various spheres of influence we may have, the command is the same: “be ready to give an account for the hope that is in you.” Sometimes we are fearful that we don’t know what to say to others, but Peter tells us we can simply just tell people what God has done for us. As we prayerfully prepare our hearts in the morning and pray that all through the day we are ready for the opportunities that He sets up, then we will begin to live a life on mission with Jesus.
