Be Prepared!

Given September 18, 2005
My job in Instructional Technology occasionally requires me to do presentations before groups of educators locally and around Virginia. Every time I do one of these presentations I spend many hours preparing so that what I say and what I show is relevant and useful to those who will be listening. We all would do that. If we have a scheduled presentation to do, we'll prepare like crazy.

But what about an UN-SCHEDULED presentation? What about when we have an opportunity to do a "presentation" of the Gospel to someone who asks? Are we prepared or do we have to say, "Wait, I'll go get the pastor." Shame on us if we're not prepared to give an answer at any time. Peter said, "But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect," 1 Peter 3:15

Now, it takes some work, some prep time. But, we'll do it for any other presentation. Make a decision today to "be prepared" to tell what God has done for you if someone asks. You'll find that you'll be blessed with confidence, peace, and all kinds of other good stuff just because you've prepared.
