Daily verse

Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience.
— 1 Peter 3:15-16

Thought for the day

Sharing my faith

I had a friend from the Maldives at school. She and two of her cousins had been sent to a boarding school in the UK. At the time I didn’t even realise she was Muslim or how different her life growing up in the Maldives was from mine.

I first made a commitment to follow Jesus when I was a teenager and I remember telling her all about my faith in Jesus. I may not have done this in the most culturally sensitive way, but I was unhindered by any preconceptions of how as a Muslim she would respond to my faith.

I hope that today I would be just as bold, but sometimes my preconceptions and fear of rejection get in the way. I want to be prepared to share my faith with any Muslims I meet today with gentleness and respect but with a certainty that what I have to share with them is truly life changing.

Prayer for the day

Lord help me to be bold in sharing my faith with Muslims that I meet. Help me to always be ready to give an answer to those who ask about my faith, sharing with them with gentleness and respect.

Daily action

God brings people from far flung places across our paths every day. Think about a simple way you can introduce faith into conversation with any Muslims you meet today. Then give it a try. Let us know how it goes!
