Our lifetime is seventy years or, if we are strong, eighty years.  But the years are full of hard work and pain.  They pass quickly and then we are gone.  Teach us how short our lives really are so that we may be wise.
PSALM 90:10,12


THE PREVIOUS KEYS WERE
KEY #1: Live Passionately
KEY #2: Love Completely


JESUS' BUCKET LIST:

  1. To seek and save the Lost.
  2. Reveal the Father's Love to us.  (He was accused of being with the sinners).
  3. To encourage us to take faith chances and to serve and trust the Father.  "The master was furious. 'Thats's a terrible way to live!  It's criminal to live cautiously like that  If you knew I was after the best, why did you do less that the least?'" - MATTHEW 11:26  *A ship is safe in harbor, but that is NOT what ships are for.  It is impossible to please God without faith.  He also rewards those who earnestly seeks him.  HEBREWS 11:6
  4. To show us why and how to stay connected  "I am the vine; you are the branches.  If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. - JOHN 15:5
  5. Reveal where we are from so that we can know where we are going.  Remember who you are.  The child of a King!!!! Once you remember who you are you wont forget your Father, just like if you forget who you are you forget your Father.
For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do - EPHESIANS 2:10
God's thoughts towards us - 1 PETER 2:9
KEY #3:  LEARN HUMBLY
G.P.S. is a Global Positioning System
now if we can find our way to anywhere with a GPS, don't you think God has his own GPS to find our way to him?

Gifts
1 Corinthians 12:4-5  There are different kinds of gifts.  They all come from God.  We are all experts of something.
Pursue
Romans 12:11  Never be lazy in your work, but serve the Lord enthusiastically.
Enthusiastically is a combination of 2 Greek words that mean God within
He's placed the passions of our life deep inside us for a reason, he wants us to pursue them.  We were given the gifts to apply them and better ourselves/ our lives.
Struggles
God allows us to go through struggles, problems and difficulties so that we will depend on him.  2 Corinthians 12:7-9
Its not just for our own benefit
Its so we can show others the way as well.


If you have 30 days to live, what would you do? Would your attitude change?  Would your relationships change?  If your time limit was 1 year, 1 month, 1 week, 1 day, 1 hour or 1 minute. What would you do?
