Bucket List

Recognize this type of list? It is a Bucket List, a list where you hope to achieve or accomplish certain things in your lifetime.

Example Bucket List:

1.      Visit the Grand Canyon ✔️
2.      Take a month-long vacation ✔️
3.      Write a book ✔️
4.      Master a new skill ✔️
5.      Road trip from state to state ✔️
6.      Receive a big promotion ✔️
7.      Accept Jesus as LORD and                   Saviour  

 

This list means nothing if you are unsaved. The greatest accomplishment, while you are alive, is accepting Jesus as your LORD and Saviour. Nothing can compare to it. If you are not saved, please add and check off saved on your bucket list before it is too late.

You may think your life is so complete and accomplished with a check mark by all the things you have done, but John 10:10 says:

John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

There is no life without Christ. In Ecclesiastes 2:1-11, Solomon wrote about all the things he had and accomplished, but realized it all was vanity. It meant absolutely nothing.

Ecclesiastes 2:1-11 “I said in mine heart, Go to now, I will prove thee with mirth, therefore enjoy pleasure: and, behold, this also is vanity. {2} I said of laughter, It is mad: and of mirth, What doeth it? {3} I sought in mine heart to give myself unto wine, yet acquainting mine heart with wisdom; and to lay hold on folly, till I might see what was that good for the sons of men, which they should do under the heaven all the days of their life. {4} I made me great works; I builded me houses; I planted me vineyards: {5} I made me gardens and orchards, and I planted trees in them of all kind of fruits: {6} I made me pools of water, to water therewith the wood that bringeth forth trees: {7} I got me servants and maidens, and had servants born in my house; also I had great possessions of great and small cattle above all that were in Jerusalem before me: {8} I gathered me also silver and gold, and the peculiar treasure of kings and of the provinces: I gat me men singers and women singers, and the delights of the sons of men, as musical instruments, and that of all sorts. {9} So I was great, and increased more than all that were before me in Jerusalem: also my wisdom remained with me. {10} And whatsoever mine eyes desired I kept not from them, I withheld not my heart from any joy; for my heart rejoiced in all my labour: and this was my portion of all my labour. {11} Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun.”

Mark 8:36 says, For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

One Way Ticket

I have a one way ticket to a special destination. The great thing about this ticket is I didn’t have to pay for it, someone else did, and I can never lose it. Any guesses to where I will be going?

Today I have lived another year and I have learned a lot thus far. I also can recognize how much I have grown spiritually thus far. Now in my life, I rejoice in my salvation, not so much when I was younger because I don’t think I fully grasped the joy and excitement in knowing that I have a one way ticket to spend eternity with the LORD. To understand how important this one way ticket is and how it has saved me from the depths of HELL.

This one way ticket was freely given to me by Jesus Christ, in which he paid for by His death, burial, and resurrection. All I did to receive it was (Romans 10:9) “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Salvation is such a wonderful thing and everyone should have it. The sad part is some don’t even want it.

So today I rejoice in another year of life, but more importantly, I rejoice in knowing that I have A One Way Ticket, my salvation.

“Choose Life”

(Deuteronomy 30:19) “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:”

In this time of year as we enter into the celebration of our LORD and Saviour’s birth let us not forget the reason why we are celebrating. God gave us a gift and gave us a choice if we would receive the gift. The choice of life or death and we chose life. There are others who need to know about the gift of Jesus and this is the perfect time to share. Instead of giving and receiving gifts amongst each other, how about we give God a gift and go out to win souls for His kingdom because after all it is not about us.

(John 3:16) ” For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

(Romans 6:23) “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

(Matthew 28:19-20)  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  {20} Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.  Amen.”

(Proverbs 11:30) “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.”
