"but sanctify Christ as Lord 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;"
1 Peter 3:15
My relationship with Christ began 38 years ago when a handful of Christian college students shared their personal testimonies with me. I had a lot of questions about the Christian faith, and they were able to answer them with gentleness and respect. I had never before seen the kind of love those young people had for God, nor the hope they possessed through knowing Him. Each Christian has a story of how they came to know Christ, and we should be prepared to share it at any time. But more than this, we need to know what we believe and why, so that we can lovingly answer questions others may have. We never know when God may place someone in our path whose life could be changed eternally, just by hearing about our faith and how the Lord has changed our lives. Do you have a story? Always be ready to tell it.
