Acts 21:13: "Then Paul answered, "What are you doing, weeping and breaking my heart?" For I am ready not only to be bound, but even to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus."
2 Timothy 2:15: Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately, handling the word of truth.
2 Timothy 4:2: Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.
Titus 3:1 Remind them to be suject to rulers, to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good deed,
