The Confidence of Hope

In 1 Peter 3:15 we find these words. “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.”

The hope that we have in Christ gives us the confidence we need to be able to share our faith. We are able to share and can be ready to share at all times because of the hope that is within us.

Witnessing is a major fear for many people; but it need not be. Because of the work of God in our lives, because of the Lord living inside us, and because of the work of the Holy Spirit, we have a story to tell and can have the confidence to tell that story. Most of us just need some practice and that is precisely what the enemy does not want you do; practice. However, because of the hope we have from God, the enemy’s desires can be thwarted. Today, tell somebody about “the hope that is in you.”
