I Peter 3:13-17
The Christian faith is intended to operate in a non-Christian world. The Christian faith was born in a world that was largely hostile to its claims. The advance of the Christian faith did not occur through military exploits, but through sacrificial love, through a focus on truth and by a passionate presentation of Jesus. The same continues to be the case today. Our job is to be prepared to give an answer to anyone that asks us about the hope that is within us. As we start a new series, we will lay the groundwork for how this is to be done.
