As October arrives, most of my plans to get ready for winter will be underway, from bagging leaves to getting the snowblower ready. Preparation is critical not only for surviving the colder months, but also to make sure our spiritual things are in order. We have a unique responsibility as Christians to show Christ when we get together with friends and family. Whether we are going to a fair or hosting a meal we should be ready to share the Gospel. The only way to be ready is by staying in fellowship with the Lord, knowing His Will, and preparing for the things He has for you in the future.
