READY


THE PREPARATION NEEDED TO RECEIVE AND WALK IN THE PLAN OF GOD.

READY


THE PREPARATION NEEDED TO RECEIVE AND WALK IN THE PLAN OF GOD.

READY prepares you to succeed when your moment arrives.

Melissa and I love to play football.  Game time is full of lights, people, cheers...energy.  But game time is not the time to get ready. READY happened the summer before the football season during two-a-day (practices).  READY happened during weekly practice, perfecting plays, doing drills, watching tapes of the opponent playing other teams.  In life, whether on the football field, in one's marriage, or on the job, READY happens long before the event.

SET


THE POSITION, WITH PATIENCE, NEEDED TO WALK IN THE PLAN OF GOD.

SET


THE POSITION, WITH PATIENCE, NEEDED TO WALK IN THE PLAN OF GOD.

SET is being put in position by a higher authority, and waiting for your sign to begin to fulfill His mission. 

I served 14 years in the military.  My first unit was 3/75 Ranger battalion. Being trained by these silent professionals was awe-inspiring for a young private like myself.  When we would train for an operation there was the assembling of the team, the development of the plan of action, the division of labor, the accumulation of needed mission supplies, the recon of the objective, the practice run-through.  When it was "go" time, everyone would be in their assigned positions.  Then we would wait.  Sometimes we were waiting for a signal, sometimes we were waiting for the enemy to walk by, but in all cases, we were SET, staged for our purpose, with everything we needed to succeed.

RENEWED


The person God saved you to be, a living process of growth, vulnerability, intimacy and submission.

RENEWED


The person God saved you to be, a living process of growth, vulnerability, intimacy and submission.

Once you are in a relationship with Jesus, you are being RENEWED, even as He SETS you here to READY you for greater usefulness. 

This is your moment, only it is not a football game, nor is it a military mission.  Your moment is a new life, a new way of thinking and a new way of being.  For many of us, everything leading to this point has not prepared us to succeed in our Christian walk, our marriage, our race relations, our spiritually social responsibility to those less fortunate.  That's ok!  We can start today, to be READY from right now, to live a life of such submission to Jesus that He will be the authority that SETs us in the right place at the right time.  As a matter of fact, that we are reading this together means that we are at the right place at the right time.  We have been SET here together by Jesus, so that He may READY us for His use.
