“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;”
1 Peter 3:15 NAS
As you walk down the busy street of your town you notice a homeless person with a dirty coffee cup begging for money. Do you pass him by? Do you give him some change? Or do you give him what will change him?
For the Christian everyday is an adventure in which we seek to hear and see God. Have you considered that seeing and hearing God is a matter many times of seeing the opportunity to act in His name?
Are you ready when the chance comes to share the mercy and love that God has given you to share? Peter and John were on their way to the temple one day when their thoughts were interrupted by the voice of a man begging for money. What the two disciples shared with that lame man on that day changed his life. “But Peter said, ‘I do not possess silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you: In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene–walk!’ And seizing him by the right hand, he raised him up; and immediately his feet and his ankles were strengthened. With a leap he stood upright and began to walk; and he entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God” (Acts 3:6-8).
May we seize the opportunities God has provided for us everyday.
