Meaning Over Means
“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense (Greek, apologia) to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear” (I Peter 3:15).
apología (apó, "from" and lógos, "intelligent reasoning") – properly, a well-reasoned reply; a thought-out response to adequately address the issue(s) that is raised.
To argue or debate is not the goal. Why? Because it is possible to win the argument, while at the same time, lose the soul. But rather, as Christian influencers, it needs to be our gracious focus to give well-reasoned replies to those who ask about our faith in Jesus. Therefore, use these narratives to best share the heart behind your Overwear.
1.) Living with meaning is more valuable than living for means. You see, what does it profit a man to gain all the worlds means and riches, yet at the same time to never discover the meaning behind their God-given purpose?
2.) Without Christ, one may have all the means to live with, but they will never have meaning to live for.
