Reporting for Duty – Romans 1:15

“So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel…” Rom. 1:15
“ Behold, the third time I am ready to come to you…” 2 Cor. 12:14
“ For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.” 2 Tim. 4:6

If there was ever someone who was “ready”, it was the apostle Paul. He was ready to preach the glad tidings of the Gospel of Christ to anyone at any time under any circumstances despite the personal hardship and dangers it posed. He was ready to come to the saints at Corinth and instruct them in the Lord and help in their joy (2 Cor. 1:24), even though it meant the possibility of impugned motives and further criticism. Above all, He was ready to offer his life as a living sacrifice and to see the Savior whom he served and whose appearing he eagerly anticipated. Ready…to save sinners, serve the saints, and see the Savior. Are we?

Who will follow Jesus, Standing for the right,
Holding up His banner, In the thickest fight?
List’ning for His orders, Ready to obey,
Who will follow Jesus, Serving Him today? — Hewitt
