We’re getting packed up and ready to go here at CentriKid! We’ve been preparing for this for a whole year now, and we’re so excited that it’s finally time to go to camp. As we make final preparations for CentriKid in the office, I’ve realized just how important it is to be ready. We’re focused on wrapping up every tiny detail, so that we’re 100% ready on the day camp starts.
Being ready is something that we in ministry all focus on pretty heavily. We’re always getting ready for a church service, an event, or an activity. The majority of our careers are focused on getting ready for the next thing, but we must also make sure that we are ready in terms of our spiritual lives.
1 Peter 3:15 instructs us to “…always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have…” We are called to be ready to share our faith with anyone at any time. God is going to give us opportunities to share His love with others, and it is extremely important that we are ready to do so when these opportunities arise.
One fact that gives me an incredible amount of peace is that all I have to do is get prepared and be ready and then God will take care of everything else. He doesn’t call us to be ready and then do everything ourselves, but, instead, calls us to be ready and wait for Him to act. We must always realize that it is He who is in control. Our job is to be ready and rely on Him to meet all of our needs. We can all rest assured that He will not let us down.
