15 Jan Jesus’ To Do List, Agenda For the Day, What’s Yours?
“And He went throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction among the people.” Matthew 4:23
“When Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he went on from there to teach and preach in their cities.” Matt: 11:1
That was Jesus typical day, His agenda for the day. What if we made that the template for our daily schedule, our agenda for the day. What would our lives look like, if that was our to do list for the day. Add to this the great commission of course that was given to us to do, live out.
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age. Matt 28:18-20
Note great commission contains the same core action verb, teach. And then what Paul said…….
Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ. 1 Corinthians 11:1
Paul imitated Jesus’ life and said we are to also, we should have Jesus’ daily To Do list as our own. If we did that then well one should never wonder what is to be your priorities for the day, what is God’s will for you, your life today, you will know.
I put in bold the actions, verbs that describe the daily activity of Jesus’ day in these verse. Take them and plan your day around them, everything in light of accomplishing them. Start off with the 4 key actions and add them to your daily to do list, be the foundation for all you do today.
Proclaim – Is to publicly to tell everyone the gospel of Jesus, tell about Jesus and the Kingdom of God. Every encounter with others, your goal is to share the gospel, Jesus with them. Just like Jesus did.
Teach – Is to explain the deeper truths about the word of God, about God, the Gospel and Kingdom, the life application of the word and the Gospel, how to live the kingdom life. In every conversation you share God’s truths that relate to the conversation, as a solution to an issue, apply the Gospel, the word of God, God to it. Just like Jesus did.
Make disciples – Do day-to-day life with others, pour you life into them, teach them in a life sharing way. You are intentional about building others up in Christ, the likenes of Jesus, teaching them God’s truths for their life. Just like Jesus did.
Healing – Healing has two components, physical and relational. If you do not have the gift of healing physically (are you sure you don’t), simply insert your spiritual gifts and exercise them daily. But every Christian can bring healing to someone’s life, someone’s relationship with God, by introducing them the the savior, the gospel brings healing to them relationally and emotionally.
So how about start today with these four, make your To Do list off of Jesus’, make these things your agenda for the day, your priority. The bases for all you do today. There is much more to His daily life, but these four are a good place to start and really every else flow from them.
