Why Christians Die Early and How To Live Longer, God's Way

For many years, church people have listened to sermons about faith, preached by ministers who claimed they were men or women of faith; however, the problem we try to ponder is why so many people within the body of Christ die early.   Of course, we should not not worry about this issue, but because we care so much about our Godly family, we cannot help but cry out to God and have His answer revealed to us of the reason for early deaths.   However, we know the answer, if it is not lacking in righteousness, it could be bad eating habits, discreet alcohol, cigarette and drug habits.   Lord, we want to do things your way and many of us enjoy life, but-let us deal with reality of why people of God die before it is there time to transcend to God's life.  It is time to learn how to live longer, God's way and not according to our own understanding and satisfaction.

God did not give us life to end it early, He gave us life to enjoy, but one of the most important things we must realize is this, we cannot live life, just to please ourselves, we must make a decision to please and serve only God.   Therefore our own desires should not be relevant.   So, that is your first step, because the Bible says, 'Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you.' -Matthew 6:33   A lot of born again believers do not take that particular scriptures, but it is very important to God and this has been the main key, a lot of us have lacked  in our lives, sometime or another.   It is time to take responsibility to where we have fallen short in our own lives.   So, we must give our full attention toward God, regardless of marriage, work, school, children, success, poverty, any issue that is taken the focus off of God, we need to give it all to Him, so that He will acknowledge those issues are irrelevant in our spiritual relationships.

Are you depressed a lot pondering about those who died early and you knew they were saved? Yes?  Give it to God and accept reality, now it is time you make sure you do whatever it is necessary to live longer while abiding by the rules of God's Kingdom.

Next, what you think is not a sin could be a sin.   A lot of controversial issues we discuss today may not ever rest, because the fact is, those particular issues that are mostly discussed are chosen over God.   If it is controversial, it must be a sin.

Another thing, how well do we take care of our minds.  We have just told you how to take care of your souls, but-do you realize our souls are many times controlled by the way we think.   What do you give your mind to?   Is God on your mind or is your focus on an attractive man or woman, you just got to have?   You must make a choice now to get anything like lust off of your mind, because, if not, it will control the decisions you make in your life, which could destroy your body.

You must learn how to take care of your body, but if you do not take care of your souls, your mind, then your body will be destroyed, regardless of the healthy meals you eat, proper exercise and vitamin supplements.  Learn this fact, 'the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.' -Romans 6:23
