To be in instant “in season and out of season”
What does this mean and how do we do this?
I’ll tell you how because God has really been dealing with me on this issue. :/
To be instant means to be prepared…be prepared to spread the gospel…be prepared to tell others about Jesus…be prepared to show Jesus…
“Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.” – 2 Timothy 4:2
BUT how do we prepare ourselves?
“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.“ – Hebrews 4:12
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” – 2 Timothy 3:16-17
We prepare our hearts, minds, and bodies by reading the word of God.
We become instant when we read the word of God…
I can attest to this!
When I’m reading the Word like I should, God is constantly revealing His truths unto me…
When I am digging into scripture, He amazes me with His presence…
