Jesus’s To Do List

I know some of you love a To Do list while others despise the very thought. Just mentioning the things on my list stresses out my spouse!

To Do lists typically include verbs, actions that we want to take or accomplish. Today, I thought it might be interesting to note what may have been on Jesus’s list as He journeyed this earth. This is by no means complete. Feel free to add to this list in Comments.

Jesus’s To Do List: pray, teach, visit the temple or local synagogue, attend a wedding, heal the sick, feed the hungry, rest, calm a storm, pray, walk on water, reach out to the unloved and socially unaccepted, forgive, travel, explain parable or teaching to followers again, pray, cast out demons, raise a dead friend, ride a donkey into Jerusalem, celebrate the Passover with my disciples, pray, surrender to unjust circumstances, carry cross, die for the sins of the world, wait, rise from the dead, visit followers (AKA freak out friends), ascend to heaven.

In the gospel of John, we find Jesus summarizing His To Do list. “For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me” (John 6:38). Praise the Lord that Jesus accomplished all He was sent to do.

May we also stay on task and do the work God has called us to do. The apostle Paul encourages us with this, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men” (Colossians 3:23).


About Arrow

Hi and welcome! My pen name is Arrow. The word “arrow” intrigues me because it has two meanings that describe my passions. One, it is an instrument used intentionally to reach a target, and two, it shows the way. As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, my goals are to live for Him, lead others to Him, and glorify the Heavenly Father. I pray that the stories, poems, song lyrics, and devotional thoughts I share on this website will always be inspired by the Holy Spirit and aligned with the truths found in God’s Word. My hope is that the words may penetrate your heart and point the way to a closer relationship with the Savior. I look forward to sharing my journey with you. Experiencing what God has in store is bound to be exciting! May you be blessed! ~ Arrow
