The Case For Christ

Be Prepared

In 2 Timothy 4:2, 5, Paul admonishes Timothy to "Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season,” and "keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist." These are principles we can apply in our own arenas of influence. In the following scene from The Case for Christ movie, a Christian named Alfie is not only prepared to step in and rescue someone in need — she’s also ready to step up spiritually and point people to the Savior. Such opportunities seem to always come when we least expect them, but this passage encourages us to be ready — “in season and out of season” — to reach out on God’s behalf. Are you willing to take a small risk to speak for him in the way Alfie did?
