Defend Your Faith with Jesse Florea
Does the word “apologetics” scare you? I shouldn’t. The word apologetics comes from the Greek word apologia, which refers to a speech of defense, typically for one’s own self. When we study apologetics we are learning why we believe what we believe. This is important for everyone, especially kids.
“Apologetics is an amazing evangelistic tool,” says today’s guest Jesse Florea. “It’s the Holy Spirit who softens people’s hearts to the truth of the gospel, but by studying the evidence and facts for Christianity, a person seeking the truth can gain even more confidence in his or her decision to follow Christ. Becoming a Christian takes faith and belief. Apologetics makes that belief much stronger because it’s built on facts.”
Establishing a foundation in apologetics early on may also help guard against the church drift many young adults who grow up in church experience as they get older. Today Jesse talks about an amazing resource for kids. I know you’re going to love it!

Why do you believe in God?
Answering that question might seem hard, but it’s important. And this book can help. This introduction to apologetics offers one hundred devotions that will give you real tools and real answers for why you believe in God and why you trust the Bible.
You’ll dig in the dirt to uncover archaeological evidence. You’ll be inspired by stories of real-life defenders of the faith, and you’ll see God’s fingerprints all over creation.
So ask the hard questions. Find the answers. And be empowered to defend your faith.
Walk It Out Scripture
Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. 2 Timothy 2:4
