The Reason for Our Hope

Tonight at Care Groups, we did something that we wouldn’t normally do. While having a lengthy discussion on this morning’s sermon on Galatians 1:1-5, evangelism and gospel proclamation, one of our members brought up the idea of immediately going out to share the gospel.

And so, with unanimous agreement, we went out to the U of L campus to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with unbelievers.  It was a great experience that we all needed more of, to step out of our comfort zones, to step up to our own personal fears, and to tell people about the reason for our hope.

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. (1 Peter 3:13-17)

Do pray for Torrence and Ryan — two sophomore students at U of L who desperately need the gospel of Jesus Christ to save them from their sin.
