Tree - Vine

 I have really been drawn to 1 Peter this week.  There are several verses that really speak to and challenge me.  How often are we given an open door to share and watch the opportunity slip away.  Why are we so afraid to let people in on our source of hope, peace and joy?  I pray that I will have the ability to live out  the verses below.

1 Peter 3:13 - 15 
Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good?  But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed.  "Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened."  But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord.  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.

1Peter 4:10-11
Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.  If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God.  If anyone serves he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever.  Amen.
