1 Peter 3:15 (Amplified Bible)

But in your hearts set Christ apart as holy [and acknowledge Him] as Lord. Always be ready to give a logical defense to anyone who asks you to account for the hope that is in you, but do it courteously and respectfully.

V. THESIS:

Praise, worship, glorify, adore, bless, honor, acknowledge and thank You very much LORD JESUS for You are set apart in my heart as Holy and You've given me a mouth, utterance and wisdom that all of my foes combined are unable to stand against or refute.

Luke 21:14-15 (Amplified Bible)

Resolve and settle it in your minds not to meditate and prepare beforehand how you are to make your defense and how you will answer.

For I [Myself] will give you a mouth and such utterance and wisdom that all of your foes combined will be unable to stand against or refute.
