Be Ready in Season and Out of Season
"I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching." (2 Timothy 4:1-2) "For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths." (2 Timothy 4:3) Be ready at all times as is a soldier and guard who is standing alert and watching continually.
"Father, we have a very real enemy who watches us for weakness and is eager to harm Your church. Your body. He is greedy to destroy human lives and lost souls. We ask that You will firm us up in the armor of God and cause us to walk in that equipment so that we will be able to handle the impact of the enemy when it comes. Make us constant in prayer and bold in reaching out to claim souls for You. We are grateful to be Your sheep, Your children. Without Your power, we have no possible hope of victory. But in Christ, we are rich and equipped and fulfilled. In the name of Christ, we stand firm and we thank you. Amen."
