Evangelization – “Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope, but do it with gentleness and reverence.” [1 Peter 3:15-16] Peter tells us to live our lives looking for opportunities to do good because we are actually paving the way for opportunities to give testimony to our faith. Do good in your work life, do good in your home life, on the soccer field, at school, wherever you are, because you are paving the way to influence the people around you. When your influence affords you the opportunity, which eventually it always does in almost any relationship, then be ready to give an explanation for your faith, for your hope, for your love. A fancy church word for that is evangelization. But it doesn’t matter what your call it, it’s just witnessing to your faith. PRAYER: Jesus put in our hearts the explanation for our hope. Let us always be ready to describe why we believe in you and why we follow you completely. Let us live so that others see you when they see our deeds.
