Readiness: becoming one with our Lord

"God called unto him ... And he said, 'Here am I.'"
- Exodus 3:4
Readiness for God means that we are ready to do the tiniest little thing or the great big thing, it makes no difference. ... whatever God's program may be we are there, ready. When any duty presents itself we hear God's voice as Our Lord heard His Father's voice, and we are ready for it with all the alertness of our love for Him. Jesus Christ expects to do with us as His Father did with Him. He can put us where He likes, in pleasant duties or in mean duties, because the union is that of the Father and Himself. "That they may be one, even as We are one." ...
The burning bush is a symbol of everything that surrounds the ready soul, it is ablaze with the presence of God.
- Oswald Chambers, My Utmost For His Highest, April 18
