Are You Ready?

Ready feet to do Thy will,
Ready hands to serve Thee still,
Ready mind Thy voice to hear,
Ready drooping hearts to cheer,
Ready every foe to face,
Ready still to shew Thy grace;
Ready every need to meet,
Ready to wash erring feet.
Ready still to watch and pray,
Ready all the livelong day.
Ready if to lose or gain,
Ready if 'tis joy or pain,
Ready when the Savior's near,
Ready when dark clouds appear;
Ready when the storm is high,
Ready through a cloudless sky;
Ready, Lord, to meet with Thee,
Ready for eternity.

Acts 26:16 … But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;  

1 Peter 3:15 … But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

1 Timothy 6:18-19 … That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

2 Timothy 2:1-3 ...Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
