Apologia (Thrusday Preaching).pptx

  2. • Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it. But do this in a gentle and respectful way. Keep your conscience clear. Then if people speak against you, they will be ashamed when they see what a good life you live because you belong to Christ. (I Peter 3:15-16, NLT)
  3. Honor God • Worship God and serve Him only • Love the Lord with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength (Mark 12:29-30) • God must be the number one in your life
  4. Be Ready to Answer • Apologia (apologetics) – ready to defend the truth for God’s glory (Jude 1:3; II Corinthians 10:5) • Be ready to answer the questions about why Christianity is true: • Why God exist? • Why the Bible is true and reliable? • Why Jesus is the divine Son of God? • Why salvation is through Christ alone? • As we present the Gospel, we must prepare ourselves to answer the questions about our faith (Matthew 28:18-20)
  5. Do it with gentleness and respect • When sharing the Gospel, let them see God’s love • When defending the Gospel, do not use it with a reason of being proud of arguing • When evangelizing the lost, let the Holy Spirit be the One who speaks • Let them encourage to examine the evidence for themselves • Pray for them
  6. Have a pure conscience • Make sure that we are living according to the will of God • Practice what you preach • Be a good example in words, behavior, love, faith and purity • Live a life according to the will of God
  7. Why is it important? • It is important because… • It validates Christian truth • It is one of God’s method to save the lost (evangelism) • It strengthens the church (edification of saints)
  8. Conclusion • Continue to honor God in everything • If there is an opportunity, when someone asks questions, then be ready to answer • When it comes on evangelism, do this with love, gentleness and respect • Have a clear conscience, trust in the Lord, and live according to His will
