Things to do before you die?

In last evening’s sermon our pastor mentioned the popular book 100 Things to Do Before You Die. A quick Google search revealed that others have lists ranging from 10 to 1000 things. It got me to thinking that though the books may be best sellers, and the concept appealing to many, the whole idea holds no attraction whatsoever for any Christian.

Why? Because the books have been published too late! Isn’t a Christian someone who has already died? Romans 6:2 and Galatians 2:19-21 spring readily to mind.

What would be a more appropriate concept is x things to do after you die. Now that would be interesting for a Christian.

But then again, the publishing opportunity is limited — it’s already been done. It’s called The New Testament.
