Are you suffering from the “Someday Syndrome”? Someday, I’ll go to college, someday, I’ll quit smoking, someday, I’ll clean the clutter off my desk, someday, I’ll get healthier, someday, I’ll live for God, someday, I’ll spend more time with family, someday, I’ll get my finances in order, when I have more time, when the kids are older, when I feel better, when work isn’t so crazy, someday, someday…someday never comes.
This Easter we will begin a journey called 30 Days to Live. This journey will focus on helping us to stop waiting for “someday” and make the most of our lives.
When Christ came to this earth He had a purpose in mind, saving you and me. He kept that purpose in the forefront of His mind because He knew His time on earth was short.
“Why did you need to search for me?” He asked. “Didn’t you know that I must about my Father’s business?” – Luke 2:49
He kept focused on the task with the urgency of a builder facing a deadline. Have you ever had a school paper or a work project due tomorrow that you scrambled to finish on time? We all have. Starting Sunday we’re gonna live like we’re dying, to quote the lyrics of Kris Allen.
What if you only had 30 Days to Live? How would you live differently? What’s keeping you from doing that now?
