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. (Colossians 3:15) Christians must be ready to make a defense of the faith. The Greek term for defense (apologia) is the word from which the English terms apology and apologetics derive. It often means a formal defense in a judicial courtroom (cf. Acts 25:16; 2 Tim. 4:16), but Paul also used the word informally to denote his ability to answer those who questioned him (Phil. 1:16). Always indicates believers' need for constant preparedness and readiness to respond, whether in a formal courtroom or informally, to everyone who asks them to give an account for why they live and believe the way they do. Account is simply logos, "word," or "message," and it calls saints to be able at the time someone asks (present tense) to give the right words in response to questions about the gospel.
