“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:” – 1 Peter 3:15
The spiritual “market” in the world today “has options.” You have Buddhism, Islam, Scientology, Hinduism, and many other minor religions. When I grew up with sales training as my vocational direction professionally, the one thing you have to answer to be successful is, “Why your product?” Or “Why your service?” If you cannot confidently and precisely answer those basic questions, you will find your level of success in sales will be severely lacking.
So, Christian, I ask you,
If you’ve been Biblically “born again” (John 3), you DO have an answer.
The clean man answers the addict, “He delivered me from addiction!”
The courageous man answers the fearful, “He filled me with unwavering faith!”
The overcomer answers the failing, “He filled me with His power!”
The faithful man answers the adulterer, “He filled me with His love and faithfulness!”
The hopeful man answers the hopeless, “He brought me through my valleys!”
As Christians, we should always have an answer as to, “Why Jesus?” If you don’t have an answer for the inquiring, respectfully, you may have to wonder have you actually met the King of Kings. When He touches its felt! When He delivers, it’s public! When He heals, it’s apparent! When He breaks the chains of bondage, it’s heard! It’s seen! When a life has been transformed, it’s obvious!
If you’re reading this and you really haven’t experienced the “2 Corinthians 5:17 Christianity”, then you haven’t really experienced JESUS. Some have gone through the motions, while others are IN MOTION with Jesus! If you haven’t, call out to Jesus today to be transformed from the inside out!
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” – 2 Corinthians 5:17
“If the Son, therefore, shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” – John 8:36
If that IS you,
get out there and unashamedly proclaim the goodness of your God! Think of this question,
“What has Jesus done for you?”
The answer, …is YOUR answer!
So why Jesus?
Because He CHANGES EVERYTHING!!!!
