BOLD YET MEEK​​!

1 Peter 3:15 – Devotional

1 Peter 3:15

“Sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and always be ready to answer anyone who asks for a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.”

Everyone encounters unexpected emergencies in their daily life. As believers we are expected to react in a more positive way than unbelievers. The reason for our positive outlook is that we that our future in eternity with the Lord is assured. Without a firm spiritual foundation that is based on the truth of God’s Word, we will find ourselves adrift in the sea of confusion.

There is another aspect of preparedness that I want to briefly touch upon today. “BE PREPARED TO BE MEEK!” We prepare to be meek by yielding to the work of the Holy Spirit in our life. Not our will; but the Lord’s will that is all important!

God has called us to be His witnesses and spread the gospel around the world, but we are told to be wise in the manner in which we share the message. Notice that this passage mentions that sharing must be done with “…meekness and fear.”

To me, this meekness and fear implies that we be sensitive to those open hearts which are around us. We must also witness to the lost by the life we live as much, or even more than the words we speak. As the old railroad crossing signs said: STOP, LOOK AND LISTEN, then proceed with caution as we share.

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
