Pastor’s Page - November 2014 “GOD‘S BUCKET LIST”

Matthew 25:42 “Keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.”

November is a month of “Bucket Lists.” The trees have lost all their leaves. Cold and freezing night time temperatures are a daily occurrence. This is the month that the first staying snow usually comes. There’s a “running out of time” feeling to get the last of the outside things put away for the winter, tuning up the snow blower, and cleaning the gutters that were neglected when the weather was warmer. November is the month that open porches and patios start being draped with blaze orange in anticipation of deer season. So many things to do, and so little time to get it all done.

November is also the time that God has a “Bucket List” for all of us. Depending upon the length of the Season of Pentecost, all the Sundays in November deal with the end times and getting things done before an anticipated event. In the Church Year, that anticipated event is the first coming of Christ our Savior as a baby in a Bethlehem stable. November is also God’s reminder to “get things done” before another anticipated event--Christ’s Second Coming.

God’s warning for us in November is to be constantly anticipating Christ’s return, because no one, not the angels in heaven, not even Christ knows when He will return. Only the Father. We do that by giving devoted attention, by remaining strong and faithful to Christ through the preaching and teaching of God’s Word, daily repentance and forgiveness, and regular attendance at the Sacrament of the Altar.

It used to be that a “Bucket List” was a list of all of the things we wanted to do for the first time--or the last time--before we died. But that list has gotten so expanded that it includes all of the work-related, pleasurable and adventurous things we want to get done while we were still young. Often times the list grows to such proportions that there is left no room to be giving attention to God’s “Bucket List.”

And when we do reach life’s end, there’s a lot of attention given to planning our funerals. “Where will I be buried? What pastor will do the service? What church can I find to be buried in? Will anyone come? How will I look in the casket? Will it snow the day they bury me? How will I or my children pay for my funeral? Who will get my money and property and things? I don’t want anyone to look at me when I’m dead.” We can get so wrapped up in all these things that really aren’t going to matter--that we forget to give consideration as to where we’re going to spend eternity.

That’s why God gives us His “Bucket List” of the things to do that really matter. Keep watch over our faith and our spiritual strength and stability, because where we spend eternity is the most important thing on our “Bucket List.”

Rev. John Wilman

FUNERAL SERVICE was held at St. Paul Lutheran for Walter Sellent on Thursday, October 9 and for LaMoyne Evenson on Friday, October 10. Sincere sympathy is extended to the families.
