Peter & Cornelius

Acts 10

1 Peter 3:15   Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.

Be ready. Just as God prepared Peter, and then sent Cornelius to Peter to hear the gospel, God may send someone to you for the same reason. Why do you trust in Jesus? Are you ready to express your faith clearly to another?  Our encounters with unbelieving people are not chance—God will send people to you who are ready to hear your testimony. If you aren’t ready to share your faith now, note how Peter did it in v. 37-43, or take an evangelism course, or talk to your pastor. Get ready to share how God draws people, how he has saved them through the sacrifice of Jesus, how he empowers them to live for him. Then when you recognize the opportunity, step into it in faith.
