  • Peter thought he was ready.

  • Luke 22:33-34, “And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death. 34, And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.”

  • Acts 21:13, “Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.”

  • 2 Corinthians 12:14, “Behold, the third time I am ready to come to you; and I will not be burdensome to you: for I seek not yours, but you: for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children.”

  • 2 Timothy 4:6, “For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.”

We must make changes
We Must Make Changes

  • In order to be ready there are some areas where we must make some changes:

  • Attitudes

    • Repent from sin and self-will. God will not bless, empower, or prosper us if we are walking in our own ways.

    • Humility. James 4:6, “But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.”

    • Faith.

    • Willingness to obey. The will to fight.

  • We are commanded to be ready.

    • Ready to Serve. Titus 3:1, “Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,”

    • Ready to Preach the Gospel. 2 Timothy 4:2, “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.”

    • Ready to Defend the Gospel. 1 Peter 3:15, “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:”

    • Ready for the Rapture. Matthew 24:44, “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.”
