But sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence 1Peter 3:15
So I have a friend called Mike, not his real name, who is one of those guys. You know what I mean, his joy at being a Christian is so visible it irritates us older crankier Christians.
Now I am being a bit facetious here but there is one thing that was true about Mike. He held Christ as Lord.
And because that was true it had an effect on the people around him. They wanted to know why, why was he this way. See they saw a hope in him that couldn’t be explained by a positive attitude he had something that they didn’t.
And if asked Mike would explain, in a gentle reverent manner what the Gospel was and why they needed this great salvation.
So on this third day of Advent let’s meditate on sanctifying Christ as Lord, so we can tell people why we have such hope in us.
