Sermon Video – “Discover, Decide, Defend” 1 Peter 3:15


My 2014 VBS sermon “Discover, Decide, Defend” from 1 Peter 3:15 at Reed Springs Baptist Church May 25, 2014.

“Discover, Decide, Defend” 1 Peter 3:15

1. We must discover the truth about Jesus

• He is Jesus of Nazareth — the historical man
• He is Jesus the Christ, the Jewish Messiah
• He is Jesus the Lord, Son of God and God the Son

2. We must decide what to do with Jesus

• Romans 10:10 “with the heart one believes and is justified”

3. We must defend our faith in Jesus

• “defense” — Gr. apologia — where we get apologetics
• Apologetics is spiritual warfare (2 Cor. 10:4-6)
• Be well-versed in the Bible (2 Tim. 2:15)
• Anticipate arguments by unbelievers (2 Tim. 2:24-26)
• We are to defend why we believe.
