Engaging People With Apologetics (1 Peter 3:13-17)

Phillip Stuckey, June 9, 2019
Part of the Prepared To Make A Defense series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

The Lord calls on us to evangelize the world (Acts 1:8). But He also calls on us to be ready to defend our faith (Jude 3). Evangelism is hard enough already for many, but how are we supposed to give a defense too? In this lesson,1 we want to consider when and how to engage people in apologetics.

1 Peter 3:13–17 (Listen)

13 Now who is there to harm you if you are zealous for what is good? 14 But even if you should suffer for righteousness' sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, 15 but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, 16 having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame. 17 For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God's will, than for doing evil.
