1 Peter 3:14-16
New Living Translation (NLT)
14 But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats. 15 Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it. 16 But do this in a gentle and respectful way.[a] Keep your conscience clear. Then if people speak against you, they will be ashamed when they see what a good life you live because you belong to Christ.
I'm beginning to see why my subconscious has let me procrastinate on these last fruits. The further down the list we go, the harder they are to grow.
But I also see why the Holy Spirit has not let me walk away from this project. I can't tell you how many times I've thought about deleting this blog and just pretending like I never started.
Gentle, I am not. at. all.
