Be Ready Always . . . In season, out of season!

 Straw hat or felt?


I Peter 3:15 instructs us to “be ready always to give an answer to every man. . . a reason of the hope that is in you…”  Paul told  the young preacher Timothy, and the Holy Spirit thought it needful to put it on record, in print so that we would always be ready to “Preach the word. . . in season, out of season…” (2 timothy 4:2)

Will today be Dan Post or Crock?


These last two weeks we have had enough of both to keep us wondering how to dress for the day.  Are we in Florida winter or Oregon summer?  Yesterday was short sleeves and Crocks but today I have on my boots and sweatshirt.  I can’t store my winter jackets and I can’t replace the sweat shirts with T’s. 

But regardless of the weather, our Lord has given us ample dress code for these days.  Our head needs to be covered with the “helmet of salvation” and our feet must be “shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace”.

What a privilege to serve the King of Kings!  So let us press on.
