Can you give an answer?

1 Peter 3:15

"But sanctify the Lord God in you hearts,
and be ready always to give an answer to every
man that asks you a reason of the hope in you
with meekness, and fear."

If someone came to you, with three minutes left of their life,
would you be able to give an answer for the hope that is in you?

Would you be able to explain to them that we have all broken
God's Law (the 10 Commandments, found in Exodus 20),
and, held to God's holy standard we are all deserving of 
eternity in Hell. 
But Jesus came to earth as a ransom for us,
because He is perfect, and had never broken God's Law,
He is the only sacrifice that could be redeemed for
the things we have done wrong. 
The story doesn't stop there though.
You have to repent (reject and sincerely apologize for 
the things you have done to break God's Law)
and put your faith in Jesus to save you
from Hell, in the same way that you 
would put on a parachute to save you.

Not sure how to share your faith?
