Morning Coffee 2/7/15 Be Ready (In Season And Out) Pt 2
“In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.” (2 Timothy 4:1-5 NLT)
Hello family! Every so often I am asked in the middle of the week to open service. The brother who normally opens will sometimes jokingly (but not joking) come up to me and ask “you got a morning coffee ready?” right before service starts. My first reaction is panic because I am not ready. I am not thinking “God could use me today!” I have been prepared every time I opened service but one Sunday I God could see fit to use me on the spot. I won’t have a week to prepare, I can’t freeze up with fear! I have to be ready! I have to be prepared! God gave me the weapon, I need to be training with it!
Much Love & God Bless
