If you wonder what is the best way to share your faith and defend it in the modern world, it might help to look at past examples.
In the Bible, the husband-and-wife team of Priscilla and Aquila shared Christ with Apollos, who would become a famous early evangelist. In colonial England, the abolitionist William Wilberforce shamed his own government into freeing slaves.
Jude 1:3 says, “Dear friends, I had been eagerly planning to write to you about the salvation we all share. But now I find that I must write about something else, urging you to defend the faith that God has entrusted once for all time to his holy people.”
Today more than ever, truly, it is really important that Christians prepare to defend our faith. The world is hurting and dying. People the world over desperately need the love of Christ, and they will have questions. They might wonder about the divinity of Jesus, or ask you specifically how to be saved.
Be ready to answer, and do so with a heart full of love and compassion. And don’t be afraid to be bold!
Lord, give us a spirit of courage in this chaotic world. Help us to love as you love. Amen.
