Peter wrote, for example,.
But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame 1 Pet. Note that the Christians Peter wrote to were enduring persecution.

This is one reason there is so little persecution of Christians in many places today—because the so-called Christians act no differently than anyone else. They had plenty of opportunities to share the gospel as they were questioned or reviled for their righteousness.
They only needed to set apart Jesus as Lord in their hearts and be ready to make a defense, just as Peter said. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
