Always Ready

Reg Grant on March 1, 2009 in DTS Devotional

For the impatient among us, wouldn’t it be convenient if people wore signs to let us know if they were ready for the gospel? It would save so much time. The apostle Paul, however, says to be patient. “I solemnly charge you before God and Christ Jesus, who is going to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: Preach the message, be ready whether it is convenient or not, –– reprove, rebuke, exhort with complete patience and instruction.” (2 Timothy 4:1, 2) Remember, God was patient with you. Take time. Be patient. And forget the signs.
