I'm in the midst of helping people understand the cost of readiness. To obtain anything costs. The concept is easy to understand when things turn out as we want them to, yet when the going gets a little rough, well we often fail to see the purpose of being prepared. I was listening to TD Jakes expound upon the cost of waiting on.....and I realized that the issue is we don't like to get ready for something and then have to wait or be told that we can't have it. We think our time has been wasted. And too many wasted efforts can result in doing nothing.
Today, I want to call us back to a state of readiness. I want us to pay up, using cash, not credit, to prepare ourselves for what Christ will do in and through us. For each of us the cost is different. Depending on where you are now, your cost may be to clean up the mess you're in both physically and emotionally. You many have to clear away the clutter of procrastination. Or you may have to get rid of the blanket of despair. Whatever it is, there is a cost involved. An exposure happens. Change must take place to position oneself for Christ.
What do you need to pay the cost of readiness?
