Bible Knowledge Meant to Be Shared; Word of Jesus Shed Light for Lives of Others


Byline: THE WASHINGTON TIMES

The following are excerpts of a sermon given recently at Hagerstown Seventh-day Adventist Church by youth pastor Josue Sanchez:

With your words, you can affect so much... You can make a person happy. You can make a person sad. If that person has been having problems for a long time and he or she is so depressed, you just go around saying, "Hey, you look sharp in that suit today" ding get a smile. He feels better. ..

The same way, you can feel very bad if someone says that was a fair judgment when Jesus was judged and someone asked Peter [whether he knew] Jesus [and Peter denied knowing him]. ..

"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." ..

When I was a student back in Spain and France, something that I hated with all my soul was someone coming and saying, "Hey, you're a philosophy student; you must know this, right?" ..

What do you think? Just by the fact of having something asked to me like this, I'll go blank. .. I get very nervous. That's why I never .. do anything like Bible questions and answers because I really get nervous. ..

Once, before I met [my wife, I met an Italian woman] and I wanted to meet her family, so I went to Italy... I spent a couple of weeks [there]. .. I was trying to impress. …
