Always Be prepared and know what the purpose is

After we have accepted this new life, God’s grace begins to prepare us for holy living and the ministry of witnessing to others.

In the natural course of daily living, we often find ourselves in situations for
which we are unprepared. There is no way to prepare for untimely deaths,
accidents, diseases, and broken relationships that suddenly hit us in the face.
Those are the times in which we lean on others, embrace the promises of
God, and let his spirit prepare us moment by moment to get through
another day and night. Our dependence on our God, who will never leave
us, in a sense, prepares us to live again. Of course, this preparedness lesson
has a spiritual application regarding our faith walk and growth. We read
from scripture the necessity of allowing the regenerating power of the Holy
Spirit to prepare our lives for a different kind of living than the world
embraces. We see our need to change the way we live, the need for
forgiveness, and the need for a relationship with Jesus.

After we have accepted this new life, God’s grace begins to prepare us for
holy living and the ministry of witnessing to others. Once we have a
transforming story, we are mandated by Jesus to tell the story.
Scripture tells us that we must always be ready to tell others the good news. We must be prepared, as Paul writes in 2 Timothy 4:2, “Preach the
word. Be ready to do it whether it is convenient or inconvenient. Correct,
confront, and encourage with patience and instruction” (CEB). Peter tells us
in 1 Peter 3:15,16, “When anyone asks you to speak of your hope, be ready
… Yet do it with respectful humility” (CEB).

Are we keeping our spiritual life up-to-date with the continual teaching
and preparation of the Holy Spirit? When we meet someone, who needs to
hear our story and the “Jesus story,” are we prepared to tell it? Do we
have a personal story?

Let us make sure we are prepared not only to meet Jesus one day face to
face but that we are ready to meet Jesus in the faces of those in our path
each day.
