1 Peter 3:15-16
It’s the scout’s motto, but Peter tells us what we need to be prepared with… words. The context is suffering. Believers are clinging to Christ and unbelievers are baffled. ‘How do you cope?’ they ask. And Peter says ‘Tell them it’s Jesus!’ Being prepared does not have to involve lengthy arguments or deep philosophy. It does mean being ready to say ‘I couldn’t have gotten through that suffering except that Jesus got me through.’
PRAY for a witness that provokes unbelievers to question and pray for the boldness to speak of Christ.
