Be Ready


“Daddy, why is the grass green and the sky blue?” Not since my 8th grade final science exam did I think I would every have a need to use that information again. But there I was, taken aback by the question for a moment. Standing in front of me looking up was my young redheaded boy, with the wonder of the world filling up his beautiful brown eyes. His query to me was with compete expectation of an answer. He was looking longingly to his father to help him understand as questions filled his heart about the world he was in. He made the assumption I had the answer, which I did.

As you and I live out our Christian faith with boldness, there are those around us who might be looking in with wonder and asking the same question, “Why?” Are we ready and able to give them the answers they need? Proverbs says, “The heart of the righteous studies how to answer, but the mouth of the wicked pours forth evil.” (Proverbs 15:28) Are we taking the study of God’s Holy Word seriously and do we do it daily? Are we ready to give an answer to those who ask? Have our devotions become a fleeting and lightweight experience? Will we ever be able to apply God’s Word daily if we do not understand it intimately and deeply?

Peter wrote, “…and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you…” (1 Peter 3:15b) Be ready church, the world is seeking the Desire of Nations, who is our Lord Jesus. They may not know it is He whom they seek, but He is the answer to their questions. Are you ready to tell them all about it?
