John 10:10b. As a pastor for 40 years I have had the privilege to minister to many people in the last days of their lives. I’ve noticed some common characteristics. When they knew they only had a few months or weeks to live they had an amazing clarity about how they would spend their time. They didn’t waste time but made the absolute most of their time left. If you knew you had one month to live, your life would be radically transformed! But why wait? Don’t we want all that life has to offer now? In this sermon, we will discover four universal principles that will transform the question, “What would you do if you had one month to live”, into an amazing lifestyle of meaning and purpose.
One Month to Live Sermon Series
My dad lived by the motto, Tomorrow’s going to be a better day. Much of his life was lived for “someday” in the future; for someday when he retired, or had enough money or when things calmed down. There was always a variation to that theme until August 5th, 2017. On that Friday evening, he went to sleep and never woke up. I wonder how his last days might have been different if he knew he only had a few days to live. I wonder how our perspective and priorities would be different if we knew we only had a few days to live? One thing is certain, we’d probably squeeze all we could from the days that remained. We’d love with abandon. We’d focus on what matters most. In short, we’d stop wasting precious time and live the way God intended for us to live all along. In this series, One Month to Live, Pastor Barry will challenge you to stop waiting for someday and start making each day count. Learn how to make the most of your time here on earth now by living your life with no regrets.
