Living Ready - Part 2
Selected by the Father Sprinkled by the Son Sealed by the Holy Spirit Ephesians 1:1-8
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 1 Peter 3:15
God is all powerful
God is all-good
What many believe!
The Church is an organized religion with a political agenda.
The Church is judgmental and negative.
The Church is dominated by males and oppresses females.
The Church is homophobic.
The Church arrogantly claims all other religions are wrong.
The Church is full of fundamentalists who take the whole Bible literally.
“Sanctify Christ as Lord in your heart”
Be ready to prove zealous for what is good.
Be ready to suffer for the sake of righteousness.
Be ready to be bold and fearless in the face of their rejection.
Be ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you.
Re ready, stay filled with the Holy Spirit, so you will answer with gentleness and reverence.
Be ready to “keep a good conscience.”
