Did God Make Cookie-Cutter People?

"But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:" 1Peter 3:15
But the Bible tells us that each of His children is a unique individual created for a special purpose.  God didn't make cookie-cutter people so we can not expect to approach each unique individual effectively about the Lord with a one-size -fits-all line or tract.  It is for this reason the Lord instructed me to write Say What You Mean Defending the Faith.

    Thank God He made us all individuals and not “cookie cutter” people. His creation and plan is best. We, as Christians, need to set a good example and have faith of a huge growing mustard seed planting seeds for His awesome Kingdom based strictly upon love, faith and forgiveness.

    The Lord does not need us to defend Him, as He can defend for himself, but we do need to give an account before Him of our lives when we leave this earth. The battle truly is His! I agree with Carla very much, also! Amen sister!

    I think that of all the great “JoJoisms,” this one is my absolute favorite! One size definitely does NOT fit all. . . or even most. That’s why Say What You Mean: Defending the Faith is such an important study. It teaches you how to really know your audience and tailor God’s Word to each of them. You can’t share Christ the same way with an elementary school child as you would with an angry and hurt Atheist. You need to recognize the individual need and meet it with Jesus. Defending the Faith teaches you to do exactly this. We always have to remember that the Scriptures say that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us, NOT when we were all prettied up, baptized and cleaned. . . but “while we were still sinners.” That means that that angry and mocking person in your face is still God’s child, same as you were/are. They deserve your love and the most articulate and respectful reply you can give them. Learn how with Say What You Mean: Defending the Faith. Besides, it’s fun!
