INTRODUCTION
Text: But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and be ready always to givean answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in youwith meekness and fear. 1 Pet.3:15.OUR name, Seventh-day Adventists, is expressive of two prominentfeatures of our faith and hope. As Adventists, we are looking for thepersonal appearing and reign of Jesus Christ. And in seeking for thatreadiness necessary to meet our soon-coming Lord with joy, we have beenled to the observance of the seventh-day of the week as the hallowed rest-day of the Creator.These distinguishing features of our religious faith are unpopular. We arefully aware that much prejudice exists in the religious world against manyof our opinions of Bible truth. This, however, exists mainly for want of information as to our real positions, and probably, in some degree, for thewant of intelligence and piety on the part of some who have represented ourviews. May God help us to overcome this prejudice by a clear andintelligent defense of the truth, and by well ordered lives, and the spirit of humility and love, that shall melt its way into the hearts of the people. Thetext suggests:–1. A preparation of heart before engaging in the work of teaching ourfellows. "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts." In our hearts we shouldset apart the Lord God as the being of our supreme love and the only objectof worship. We should be cleansed from sin and should be imbued with theSpirit of God before engaging in the responsible work of teaching the truthof God to others, lest we mar the work, and create prejudice, instead of removing that already existing.2. A preparation of the mind of study is suggested in the text. This isnecessary in order to be always ready to teach those of inquiring minds."And be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you areason of the hope that is in you." Divine truth appeals to the understanding.The people ask for reasons, not assertions merely. Those who teach shouldbe intelligent. They should be ready. They should be "ready always to givean answer to every man that asketh." The veriest novice in heavenly thingsmay give assertions with all the confidence of experienced Bible students,and yet for want of disposition to "search the Scriptures, " and to "study toshow himself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to beashamed, " he may not be able to give one forcible reason.
