What George Burns Wants You to Know (You're Booked)

What George Burns Wants You to Know
Cigar-smoking comedian, George Burns, was asked in his 90's "George do you think you'll die before you make it to 100?" To which he replied "Me die? I can't die, I'm booked!"  George was indeed booked and George made it to 100. 
Paul, in Philippians, was torn on the one hand, to depart and be with Christ, but called by God, on the other hand, to stay and fulfill his calling to serve the Philippian church. Learn from George and from Paul, if you are alive, "You're Booked!

Psalm 139:16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
I. You’re Booked- Turn Everything to Your Advantage  
Philippians 1:12 Now I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel, 13 so that my imprisonment in the cause of Christ has become well known … 18 But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice. 
II. You’re Booked - Your Ultimate Gig Secure
21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.   
III. You’re Booked - Someone Needs You  
22 But if I am to live on in the flesh, this will mean fruitful labor for me; and I do not know which to choose. 23 But I am hard-pressed from both directions, having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for that is very much better; 24 yet to remain on in the flesh is more necessary for your sake. 25 Convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy in the faith.
