I’m Jesus. I can come down and people will see that, and they’ll follow me and maybe my Father didn’t really mean for me to do the whole thing, to go through the whole deal. So I’ll just come down from the cross.” That decision was hanging in the balance. I’m sure all hell was saying, “Jesus come down. You don’t need to do this. Come down.” But Jesus endured. He asked, “Is it on the agenda?” He knew the plan was for him to go all the way to death; to clock out for your sins and mine. He was buried and rose again. Is it on the agenda?
What’s the meaning of life? What’s your purpose? To recreate, procreate and die? That’s it? Are you just an educated ape? Wow! No, we aren’t. We’re made in the image of God. We have an agenda that God has set for us that would just blow a fuse if we could see it right now. Every life here matters to God. I don’t care who you are, what you look like, or where you’re from. I don’t care how many dumb decisions you’ve made.
God has an amazing agenda for your life. You play a huge part in his redemptive role. But to do it, we’ve got to ask ourselves and answer these three big questions every time we face a decision. “Is it written?” “Is it love?” “Is it on the agenda?” Next weekend, I’m going to talk about some micro decisions, because yes, these macro questions are huge, but these micro decisions and micro questions also need to be asked. We’re going to see how God’s agenda specifically plays out in all of our lives.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Jr
