Are you ready for God to show up?

That's the question that has been popping into my head since the summer. So often we come as lead worshippers and are not ready for God to really show up. I think sometimes I would be surprised if I saw people's lives getting radically changed and those people following after Jesus Christ. Please tell me I'm not alone is this... but at the same time seeing those changes sparks a fire in me to keep leading, and working.
Are we ready for God to show UP?
The idea was brought up by a church member of mine at a men's bible study. Are we ready for the growth that God desires for us? Are we thinking with the attitude that hundreds will be influenced by our worship or by our church? Are we truly seekly to meet with God on Sundays? It's easy to get unfocused and fall into the routine of church. But we must remember that there is something spiritual when followers get together and shout out the name of Jesus.

I don't know if we are ever 100% ready for what God desires for us. He says who will go, we say send us...and Alot of times what He gets us into, gets us ready (if that makes any sense at all.)
So are we ready for God to show up this Sunday? Are we ready to see life-change occur?
