This is a TAG! Post, you know… like TAG YOU’RE IT! In this post I will answer one question, and TAG three other Christian Bloggers I know to create a blog post on their site answering the same question. If they choose to participate they will do the same thing with 3 Bloggers they know, and on it goes.
Bloggers – If you decide to participate, send me a link to your finished post and I will add it to the bottom of this page.
THE QUESTION: What is one big challenge Christians face?
MY ANSWER: Knowing how to defend their faith.
In our modern very secular society Christians are often going to be challenged about their belief in Jesus Christ. Many Christians choose to keep their beliefs private to avoid this type of situation, but we should strive to let our light shine as it says in Matthew 5:15-16:
15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
And in 1 Peter 3:15 the Bible says…
but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,
This is not to say that every Christian has to study Apologetics or go to Seminary, but I would encourage all believers to spend time in the Word of God daily… dig deep into that treasure trove of wisdom given to us by inspiration from God. Pray to God and ask for wisdom and discernment, ask questions to leaders of your church, get involved in some Bible studies.
This way, when the time comes (and it will come) that you are questioned about your faith, you will be adequately prepared. Here are a couple of resources that may be helpful… I currently own and have read them.
Now the fun part! These are the 3 Christian Bloggers I am “Tagging”:
Your challenge should you choose to accept it is simple: On your blog create a post like this, where you explain the TAG! Game, pose the same question above, with your own answer. Then challenge 3 new bloggers to play the game.
REMEMBER: If you decide to play along, let me know the link to your post so I can add it to this one. Thanks for playing!
