Be Ready!

"But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ."  1 Peter 3:15-16

Church, we must BE READY at all times.  After all the studying, praying and fasting, we should ALWAYS BE READY to share the reason for our faith, without getting rude or defensive.

Some of us have "played church" so long that we can't truly worship God without a Hammond B3 organ.  We "faked it until we made it" so long that we can't preach unless a sermon is pulled off the internet.

When Jesus comes back, there will be no time for rehearsal and searching through notes.  What's in your heart?  Those who truly know God and spend quality time with Him are ALWAYS READY with a word, a praise and worship rooted in spirit and in truth.

There's no such thing as a prophet who can't lead a soul to Christ.  No true pastor exists who doesn't have compassion for the hurting.  Every real apostle understands that worship is a matter of the heart, not format.  DISCERNMENT... Never leave home without it!

Let's get real... and get ready!  ORDER IN THE CHURCH!
