Share with Respect

1Pe 3:15 But in your hearts set apart 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,

When other people notice my quiet calm rather than fear in various situations or fear about future of finances, health, etc, I must always be ready to tell them the Source of my peace. But, I am not to do this in a pushy or loud way. When I share my faith, I share in a quiet voice. Even though I know accepting Jesus as God’s only Son incarnate and believing in Him and making Him Lord of my life is the only route to God, I must respect others who are not aware of this truth. However, I can and do pray for their freedom from the lies of this world and Satan and openness to God’s truth. There may be times to stand on a street corner and yell but mostly that method will turn people away. The best witness is living our faith in all we say and do. People are watching.
