THRIVE: What are you doing? Why are you doing it?


As the week kicks off I reflect on a question/comment I made last night at my daughter’s baccalaureate when I said “God’s Word tells us to be ready in and out of season to give a reason” and was going to ask my daughter’s friend’s boyfriend a question. It didn’t happen but God’s Word is so true and so powerful and so right!

Are you ready to give an answer to the question someone could ask you? Are you ready to give an answer to why you have so much hope? Are you ready to give an answer for what you are doing? Are you ready to give an answer to why you are doing it? Are you ready to express that God is leading and guiding you into what you are to be doing? Are you ready to express that Jesus is the reason why you are doing it?

Let’s pause for a moment and consider what Paul says in 2 Timothy 4:2:

Let’s consider what we hear from Peter in 1 Peter 3:15-16:

So as we begin our week, let’s get prepared, let’s be prepared, and let’s live our lives to glorify God!


Today’s Verse of the Day:

‘Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. ‘

Acts 2:38

Today’s post from Be The Dads is Just For Dads: Be A Positive Christian Role Model – Day 5


Are you ready? Are you prepared? Are you faith-filled? Are you faithful? Invite Jesus into your life to help you! Invite Jesus into your heart to get a fresh start and a clean heart! Let’s be ready today! Let’s be prepared!

Prayer Of Salvation
"Oh Father God, I believe with all of my heart that Jesus died on the cross for my sake and has risen from the dead. Lord, I receive Your Word and I repent of my sins. I renounce the past. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus. I receive my forgiveness. I receive the new birth, cleansed and washed in the Word and in the precious blood of Jesus. Fill me with Your Spirit, in Jesus' name. Amen."
