1 Peter 2:11-20  "Advertise for Jesus"

This passage of scripture is interesting for in it Peter makes an argument that a Christian who is living a godly life, as all Christians are called to do, that in living such a life even the people who have no knowledge of the Gospel or who are opposed to it, cannot but help say good things about your life and end up praising God because of how you live.  Peter goes so far about how we live, that he makes the case our critics will be silenced, for there is nothing about us that they can find fault with.  I must say this is a tall order for us to fulfill, but with help of the Holy Spirit in us we can live such a godly life.
