Read 1 Peter 3:15-17

Proving zealous for what is good may be one of the hardest challenges we face daily.  For many of us, it requires us to come out of our comfort zone and act noticeably different than those around us.  Although it may be frightening, it is not in vain.  Jesus says in Matt 5:10,”Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”  What a joy these words bring to our hearts.  Let us not be afraid to share this wonderful news, but instead as 1 Peter 3:15 says, let us “sanctify Christ in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.”   May God’s love give you the joy, strength and courage to be who He asks you to be.
