Stepping Through the Door

Yesterday we looked at Spiritual Doors and how to open them. Today we'll look at suggestions from 1 Peter 3:15-16 on what we need to do once they are opened. There are three things we need to do:

1. Preparation:  Study so you can answer people’s questions. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. 1 Peter 3:15

2. Presentation: Respond gently, so they can hear your answers. But do this with gentleness and respect, 1 Peter 3:15

3. Reputation: Be righteous so people will believe you. …keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. 1 Peter 3:16

 When considering your preparation, presentation, and reputation what areas do you need to work on?

“We pray that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work.” Colossians 1:10
 
Be wise today and always - be ready to share your hope always.
