Ready

Get 'ready for anything' this summer! Our theme comes from 2 Corinthians 9:8

God is able to make all grace abound to you so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.

This verse comes from a whole section about Paul encouraging believers in Christ to be cheerful givers towards God's work in the world. Many people think this just applies to money, but it also includes our time and talents. God created us to work, and He created us to do good work! What does that look like? When your parents remind you to do a chore, do it joyfully and to the best of your ability, not grumbling, complaining, and sloppy quick just so that it's done. When your little sister is annoying you and begging you to play with her, do it with gusto! Play to make her happy and not shoving her away. I'm sure there are many other things that you can find to apply this principle.

Jesus came to earth as a human, but was still fully God. He taught us how to live as the humans God created us to be, sacrificed himself on the cross, and was raised from the dead so that God could fix us completely. God also gives us the grace to be 'ready for anything' including the difficult things in our lives, like facing our fears, insecurities, or heartaches. The Holy Spirit lives in Jesus-followers and gives us the ability to be overflowing in good work. 

Ready? Set.... Go!
