1 Pet. 3:15 (NASB) But sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.
1 Pet. 3:1 (NASB) In the same way, you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives.

John 1:40-42 (NASB) One of the two who heard John speak and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. He found first his own brother Simon and said to him, "We have found the Messiah'' (which translated means Christ). He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, "You are Simon the son of John; you shall be called Cephas'' (which is translated Peter).

Acts 16:27-32 When the jailer awoke and saw the prison doors opened, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself, supposing that the prisoners had escaped. But Paul cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Do not harm yourself, for we are all here!'' And he called for lights and rushed in, and trembling with fear he fell down before Paul and Silas, and after he brought them out, he said, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?'' They said, " Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.'' And they spoke the word of the Lord to him together with all who were in his house.

Acts 8:29-35 (NASB) Then the Spirit said to Philip, "Go up and join this chariot.'' Philip ran up and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet, and said, "Do you understand what you are reading?'' And he said, "Well, how could I, unless someone guides me?'' And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. Now the passage of Scripture which he was reading was this: "HE WAS LED AS A SHEEP TO SLAUGHTER; AND AS A LAMB BEFORE ITS SHEARER IS SILENT, SO HE DOES NOT OPEN HIS MOUTH. 3IN HUMILIATION HIS JUDGMENT WAS TAKEN AWAY; WHO WILL RELATE HIS GENERATION? FOR HIS LIFE IS REMOVED FROM THE EARTH.'' The eunuch answered Philip and said, "Please tell me, of whom does the prophet say this? Of himself or of someone else?'' Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning from this Scripture he preached Jesus to him.

Mark 5:18-19 (NASB) As He was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed had been imploring Him that he might accompany Him. And He did not let him, but He said to him, "Go home to your people and report to them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He had mercy on you.

Mark 16:9-10 (NASB) Now after He had risen early on the first day of the week, He first appeared to Mary Magdalene, from whom He had cast out seven demons. She went and reported to those who had been with Him, while they were mourning and weeping.
