Biblical Readiness requires:
1. Responsiveness – measuring personal readiness and the readiness of Christians, the Church, the community, and the times to establish a plan to be ready to respond. Biblical example: Jeremiah, testing the metal of God’s people.
2. Engagement – covenants and commitments made to care for others during crisis and disaster in defined areas of responsibility called Response Areas. Biblical Example: Nehemiah, rebuilding the walls.
3. Resilience – spiritual, emotional, mental and physical resilience gained through: keeping covenants and commitments, the daily practice of worship, prayer and obedience to God, practicing emergency responses of all kinds, and responding as God leads in prayer. Biblical Example: Mordecai and Esther – for such a time as this and the Full Armor of God.
4. Replication – to live as examples of the saving grace of Jesus Christ actively praying and caring for others and sharing the hope we have in Jesus Christ…before, during and after crisis or disaster. Biblical Example: Jesus’ life on the road to the cross and Paul before King Agrippa. The steps you follow determine your own level of readiness and help you grow in areas you may be weak. The Biblical Readiness Assessment helps you determine your current level of Biblical Readiness.
