Speaker 1

So Daniel is asking, may I ask you questions about your face? Be ready always.

Speaker 2

And then I think we actually have another one just like that. Do we want to do that? Daniel’s question also, two questions, one answer.

Speaker 3

If we need a minute to get that up, I can at least start answering it, and then we can address the other one.

Speaker 2

Go ahead.

Speaker 3

Sure. So to me, it sounds like you’re quoting First Peter, chapter three, verse 15. And First Peter 315 states, but sanctify the Lord God in your hearts and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asks you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear. And so as far as just always being ready to give an answer, that’s what we’re called to do. We’re called to always be ready. But before you’re even ready to answer or give an answer, what it says first in the verse is to sanctify the Lord God in your hearts. So to sanctify is to make holy or set apart or make special. So you really need to have him sit on the throne, make a special place for God in your heart. And I always like to think of God sitting on the throne of our hearts. Basically. It’s not just that we say, okay, well, we read some verses so I can answer. And it’s not just about knowing the Bible like memorizing verses. It’s about having God living inside of you and just really being like God. I welcome you into my life, into my heart.

Speaker 3

Fill me with your spirit and change me and make me ready to receive your thoughts and your mind in myself so I can reflect you to those around me, and then we can be ready to speak to others about our faith. Because I don’t know about you, but I’ve met people who knew a lot of the Bible, and they could answer out of the Bible, but their spirit was not right. And I really think that the spirit that we speak to people and how we answer questions is like, the first and foremost, most important part of being ready to answer. Anything about when it comes to spiritual matters of the Bible or about God is sanctified in our hearts and that he’s in our hearts, first of all, and we put Him at the right level, that we give Him the respect and the importance and reverence that he deserves in our lives. Now, I think there was an additional part to this question, if I’m not mistaken.

Speaker 2

I think we have it ready.

Speaker 3

Okay, go ahead.

Speaker 2

And it’s actually by I believe the same person, because both are asked by Daniel.

Speaker 1

Okay. Daniel is asking, what church are you.

Speaker 3

A part of your faith in?

Speaker 1

What church?

Speaker 3

Okay, so as far as our faith in church, I mean, our faith is in the Bible and the Word of God. And as far as Bible Ask goes, we as a ministry are not affiliated with any church or denomination. We’re simply just Bible believing Christians who want to share our faith in the word of God. So as far as Bible Ask goes, like I said, we’re not part of a denomination or a church. But we do recommend that you find yourself a church to attend and to be a part of. I think church family is very important. And the Bible obviously tells us that we should assemble and not forsake the assembling of ourselves in worship to God. So that would be my answer to that.

Speaker 1

Amen.

Speaker 3

First pops to my mind, but basically when it comes to what faith are we of the Bible is very clear in the teachings of Paul. In Ephesians, chapter four, verse five, it says there’s one Lord, one faith, one baptism. And so we’re all part of the body of Christ. Whether or not we’re in the same church, it doesn’t really matter because I know that there’s a lot of division in Christianity because there’s different churches and different denominations. But we at Bible Ask are not really concerned. But we don’t limit ourselves to one church or anything. We just want to study with people who want to study the Bible. And we all worship the same Lord, which is the Lord Jesus Christ and his Father in heaven. The one are one faith and one baptism. We’re all baptized into the same faith, which is into the truth of Jesus Christ. So that’s what I would say to that.

Speaker 2

And what’s interesting for me, I always like to think of myself as like a follower of the way the Bible talks about, especially around right after Jesus left, the disciples will talk about the Way. That’s what they’re referring to their religion. They’re not Christians. And Christian comes on later almost like people are mocking them. Oh, you’re Christian Christians, just like some people used to call Muslims Muhammadans. So it was sort of that same thing. But yeah, I like the concept of the way. And then you go back and read the Bible, everything is about God showing you the way. Juice says, I am the way. And I really like the idea of just going back, this being truth of the Bible. That’s the true religion, not something that maybe we’ve sacked 2000 years of traditions onto.

Speaker 3

Yeah.

Speaker 1

To the question of to give like an account for your faith. I have a little piece to share on that, which is the reason for my faith, because I was not raised in a church, but the reason for my faith is God working in my life in so many ways over the years and then revealing scripture to me. Because I didn’t grow up reading the Bible, so I didn’t know a lot of these verses. And God would say something to me or give me direction on something and then I would later find that in the Bible. And that, to me, is the reason for my faith and my belief in the word of God.

Speaker 2

Amen.

Speaker 3

Amen. You.
