Lent 2009 (25) – Speaking and acting

Have reverence for Christ in your hearts, and honour him as Lord. Be ready at all times to answer anyone who asks you to explain the hope you have in you. 1 Peter 3:15-16

It’s important that our lives, actions and church programmes demonstrate the love of Christ. But if we never speak about him explicitly, people will just think that we are nice. We want people to find life in Christ, not just feel warm feelings!

It is his glory, not ours that we seek. We have to be able to ‘explain the hope we have in us’ and that means talking about Jesus as our Saviour and Lord!
