When times are good, the difference between Christians and moral non-Christians may be hard to detect; however, during times of duress and crisis, the difference ought to be magnified. The difference is God. Gospel opportunities come when others ask why we are so different from the world. As I Peter 3:15 instructs, “…if someone asks about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it. But do this in a gentle and respectful way.” If ever there was a time when our “hope” ought to be recognizable, it is during times of hardship.
