Life’s Most Important Bucket List

Bucket List?  Here is the No-Beatin’-Around-The-Bush-Bucket-List:
1)  Before you kick the bucket, get right with God!

God is an inner guide nudging, prompting, and urging humans toward a peaceful, joyous, loving, and morally excellent life. Yet we are often so obsessed with our own opinions and desires that we miss out on His best and settle for the feebleness of our own efforts.

What the world wants is self-fulfillment, without regard for the consequences.  Christ calls us to choose self-denial, regardless of the cost.  Which way are you living? (Matthew 16:24) Does God have your passionate love and obedience?

And don’t worry about what people think about you!  Daily follow and obey the living, resurrected Jesus Christ anyway!

It is unreasonable to expect everybody to agree with what we believe, say, and do. However, life works better if we show love rather than hostility to those who disagree with us.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
