This Sunday we launch a new series entitled “Your Big Questions” which will run throughout April in our London congregations.
The idea: We have been asking many of our friends / colleagues / and anyone we meet what their “Big Question” is about life, God, the universe, or anything else for that matter. We are collating all of these questions, and during April in our Sunday services & Connect Groups we will try to give a Biblical worldview response to the most popular questions received.
This Sunday we share some thoughts which will hopefully help us to apply this challenging instruction given in 1 Peter 3:15:
“Therefore in your heart set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer/ defence to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have in you. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience…”
The Big Question is often not the real question, so make sure you don’t end end answering a question which isn’t being asked. Learn to ask questions about the question, and peel away the layers of assumptions and worldviews which hide the real question.
We don’t need to have answers to every question. Accept that there are mysteries. God gave us all we need in order to believe, but not all we want.
Christians are not the only ones who need to answer for what they believe. Everyone does.
Do you have a Big Question of your own? Post it as a comment below, and we’ll add it to the list. Otherwise, check out our dedicated YourBigQuestions blog here.
