Daily Bible Study - kindly provided by Premier and the Bible Society

Do have a look at the Premier Daily Bible reading below. It is really so good.


If someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it. But do this in a gentle and respectful way.

1 Peter 3.15-16 NLT

When Peter wrote his letter, Christianity was still quite new and so I am sure that many people were very curious about it. They wondered what this new-fangled faith was all about, and Peter was keen that his readers shouldn’t miss any opportunity to talk about it. But it had to be done in the right way. If they were aggressive and disrespectful it could put people off for ever. So he urged them to be ready for every opportunity that came their way but to ensure that their responses were gentle and respectful.

In our own society, so few people attend church that there is, once again, a great curiosity about Christian faith. Most people know that Christianity exists, but haven’t a clue what it’s about, so we all need to be ready to talk about our hope as believers. I know this may sound intimidating, but it shouldn’t. We don’t need to have all the answers, and in fact none of us do. We simply need to be able to explain why Jesus is so important to us, and how he has changed our lives. Answering people’s questions
is not nearly as important as taking their questions seriously. If you are asked a question that you can’t answer, then be absolutely clear that you don’t know. People will always find that response far more refreshing and helpful than someone who has got slick responses to every question.

The Alpha Course, which has been run in more than 100 countries and attended by more than 27 million people, encourages people to ask questions. People are shown respect as they ask their questions and are offered teaching which they can reflect on in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Alpha and the many other introductory courses are great, but it is still vital that we are all on our toes and ready to respond whenever people ask questions about our faith.

QUESTION
What could you do to become better equipped to share your faith with others?

PRAYER
Loving Father, thank you for the good news that you have brought to us through your son, Jesus. Help us to seize every opportunity for sharing it with others. Amen
