But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: 1 Peter 3:15

Question for this week:
~What is one (or more!) lesson you’ve learned from this verse?

My answer:
The starting point is sanctification (make holy, purify, or consecrate – Strong’s definition). Next, we are to be ready – a phrase that gives the idea of action: studied up, waiting. Then, if you notice, we are not simply to give our answer, but to do it with meekness (mildness, humility – Strong’s definition) and fear. This is a challenge for us, as God’s children, to be a testimony – a verbal testimony – of what He has done in our lives!!

Please share your thoughts with your verse!!

I know that summer is generally a busy time for all of you, but I urge you to continue with your memory. Let us not allow the busyness of life distract us from something that will last a life-time!

This week, I memorized Psalm 73:28..."But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works".
As He draws me near, I know that He is teaching me to trust and fully rely on Him.

Have a wonderful weekend! :)
