A Day with Joni ~ Are You Ready?

Always be ready to give an answer to every man who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you…
– 1 Peter 3:15b

Boy Scouts have nothing on moms. “Be prepared” is a motto to them. It’s a way of life for us! Peter admonishes us to “always be ready to give a defense” of the gospel. Have you ever taken a few minutes to consider the most concise way you can share Christ with someone today should the opportunity arise?

We should be prepared! Our world is spiritually hungry. People are looking for answers. Only the gospel can truly satisfy. We have the message and we are surrounded with need. Shouldn’t we prepare ourselves for those opportunities? Imagine before you two plates – on one all the ingredients that go into a loaf of homemade bread. On the other, a golden loaf, just out of the oven. Which is more appetizing?

Put the ingredients together. Think through what you’d say. Maybe write out your testimony. Be prepared. If someone needed a safety pin or a needle and thread in a pinch, chances are a mom could produce it in a heartbeat. What if someone needs Jesus – and they bump into you?

Almighty God, You know the day before me. You know every Divine encounter I will have. Lord, help me be prepared – to call to mind and memory quickly my testimony and to be able to articulate Your love. Then bump me into the people who need You. Prepare me – and use me, I pray.
