Lent Devotion Daily Guide – March 10, 2022
Being unprepared is often a very unpleasant experience. The feeling of being unprepared can make us feel panicked, anxious, and even inadequate. Sometimes it is unavoidable to be unprepared. However, God never wants us to be unprepared when it comes to matters of our faith. Early Christians were taught to always be prepared to give an account of their faith. The apostle Paul once wrote to his apprentice Timothy to tell him something important. 2 Timothy 4:1-2 “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.”
As a part of our Christian legacy, we are called to live our faith daily. It is possible, with some internet research, to learn to do things we didn’t previously know how to do. However, we never know when Jesus is going to call on us to be his representative another. We never know when Jesus is going to call on us to share grace, love, or hope in a unique way. It is a vital part of our Christian legacy to always be ready to show God’s love.
Take a moment and ponder the following questions:
- Do you live your live in a state of Christian readiness, or are you unprepared to show God’s love to another?
- Are you ready to give an account of your faith?
- Are you ready to teach about God’s love with patience?
