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

Has God Called You to Preach?

Written by

The one who would exposit the word of God must be sovereignly chosen and called by God to do so. This sacred call is a divine appointment by which one is separated from one's mother's womb to preach the Scriptures.
