How to Have a Long Life
Here’s a thought-for-the week recently published on our website in the UK. (http://gracecom.church/), written by James Henderson.
If you go to church, statistics show that you’re likely to live longer. That’s according to some recently-published results of surveys the compared the longevity of Christians compared to non-Christians.
You might think that this could be a reason for Christians to feel smug, but actually it isn’t. Paul, an early Christian writer, suggested that if we had hope for this life only, then what’s the point of anything? Life is not about trying to live longer. What we need is hope for life after life, an eternal life that God made possible through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
Of course, it’s understandable that we want to live longer, and going to church is good.
But, if you want more than that, turn to Jesus and receive eternal life.
