1 Peter 3:15 But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,
There is always a certain amount of presumptive evidence when looking at a picture of one of God’s so-called lesser creatures that our various cultures have imputed to those creatures a “natural” perfection of form and presence within their several environments. We tend to hold these up as examples to emulate and revere. Christian folk will often call this a type of reverence.
Be that as it may all Christians must sooner or later come to grips with the idea that to follow Christ is totally antithetical to our own natures, to the world systems, and to the universal enemy of our Risen Lord.
Peter here, in one statement sums up all of the internecine conflict that we must face when we set out to follow Christ in this sad and broken world. Our marching orders, so to speak, will put us at odds with all except those who by the work of the Holy Spirit are pre-disposed to hear.
