But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Friend of Sinners

Written by

The more religious you are, the less likely it is that you will see, recognize, and appreciate Christ for Who He really is. Sinners, on the other hand, had little trouble recognizing Him.

The Precious Seed

One does not plant a seed on Sunday morning and expect to find fruit on Monday. The seed must surrender itself to the process of growth before it can mature into something that bears fruit.
