Passage: 1 Peter 3:13-17
1 Peter was written to the Christians across Asia Minor who were being persecuted for their faith. This was Peter's command to them as they endured their suffering: that they would not fear, but honor Christ as holy, always being prepared to give a defense for the reason for the hope within them. They were commanded to be prepared to give a defense of the faith. This command is for us as well; we must know what we believe and why we believe it.
Get any group of people together long enough and they will develop a culture. They will develop patterns, traditions, values and goals.
