Be Ready to Defend!

September 28, 2014

1 Peter 3:14-16 AMP
14 But even in case you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, [you are] blessed (happy, to be envied). Do not dread or be afraid of their threats, nor be disturbed [by their opposition].
15 But in your hearts set Christ apart as holy [and acknowledge Him] as Lord. Always be ready to give a logical defense to anyone who asks you to account for the hope that is in you, but do it courteously and respectfully.
16 [And see to it that] your conscience is entirely clear (unimpaired), so that, when you are falsely accused as evildoers, those who threaten you abusively and revile your right behavior in Christ may come to be ashamed [of slandering your good lives].

Do not be afraid
By anyone who opposes your life in Christ.

Instead acknowledge Him as Lord
Remind the opposition of who the Lord Jesus is
And to whom you belong!

The Sovereign Lord,
Maker of heaven and earth will vindicate you!

Psalm 26:1-3 AMP
1 Vindicate me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity; I have [expectantly] trusted in, leaned on, and relied on the Lord without wavering and I shall not slide.
2 Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; test my heart and my mind.
3 For Your loving-kindness is before my eyes, and I have walked in Your truth [faithfully].

Thank You Lord Jesus, You are our hope, our help and shield. Help us to keep Your mercy and loving-kindness ever before our eyes. And help us walk in Your truth, that others may see and ask for an account of our hope!

Psalm 115:11 AMP
11 You who [reverently] fear the Lord, trust in and lean on the Lord! He is their Help and their Shield.

Hope in the LORD
Be strong
Be of good courage

Hope & Take heart!
