Day 3: Sharing God’s Word
Imagine for a moment that you have a friend, colleague, or family member who begins to ask you some questions about your faith. They may begin by saying something like, “You or your family seems a bit different than others I know.” But then they go on to ask a few questions:
- You seem to live like everything matters. Everything is important. Every person is significant. Why is that?
- What exactly does it mean to trust God? Or to place your faith in Christ and to be a Christian? Or maybe, what exactly is the gospel? Can you explain it to me?
- My marriage is crumbling, and you’re one of the few people I know who has a strong marriage. What does the Bible say about marriage, and can you help me to see my marriage differently?
In that moment you’re left with a choice. You may respond by saying, “Wow, those are great questions for my pastor, or my priest. Let me get you their number.” Or you may recognize that God has invited you to share His Word with them in order to help you both to grow. As you read today, consider this: How would you respond if somebody asked you these kinds of questions?
How would you respond if somebody asked you the kinds of questions listed in today’s devotional?
Does 1 Peter 3:15 impact how you would think about answering these kinds of questions?

Reflect: What did you H.E.A.R. from God today? HEAR Bible Study Method
Heavenly Father, I confess that while my inadequacies sometimes interfere with my desire to minister to others, these same inadequacies go to a whole new level when I think about sharing about Your Word, Your grace, and Your lovingkindness with others. Today, instead of praying that You provide me with the confidence to share Your word with others, I simply pray that You will reveal to me more of who You are so that I may know You better. May the box I sometimes put you in be shattered so that I can see and know You for who You really are. By truly knowing You, may my confidence to share more about You and Your word increase beyond measure. I pray these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.
