1 Peter 3:15 (ESV)

15 but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,

Believers must give Jesus Christ his rightful place in their hearts, which is reverence, not only as the master but also sovereign Lord. Believers must at all times be ready to give a response to anyone about the reason for our faith.
