Always Be Preparing

Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.
(2 Timothy 2)

  • Living a life that pleases the Lord takes mental, spiritual, and physical preparation.
  • A heart dedicated to God must be prepared to serve Him (1 Sam. 7:3).
  • The Bible tells us to always be preparing.
  • We are to be ready to do good works (2 Tim. 2:21).
  • We are to defend scriptural truth (1 Peter 3:15).
  • We are to share the Gospel with others.
  • Even our giving takes planning (2 Cor. 9:5).
  • And that is just a start.
  • There is some stress, though, when we are always getting something ready for somebody.
  • It’s hard to balance priorities with the pressure to prepare a lesson, a message, or a document continually on our mind.
  • But we don’t need to stress, because God will enable us with His power.
  • Let’s ask God to guide us as we prepare to serve, honor, and tell others about Him.
  • The best preparation for tomorrow is always the right use of today.
