Reference: 2 Timothy 4:2 NIV
Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.
Change your mindset from getting ready to always ready. Practice being stumped or thrown off your game. Think about the most weird and awkward times you would offer salvation or minister the Word. Practice and Analysis produces Confidence. Confidence brings forth a great reward.
No only should we be ready to minister, we must be ready, willing and discerning in discipline. We must work to ensure that they get it. They won’t always get it the first time or the second, or the third but we must see to it that they get it however long it takes.
