All we need is spelled out for us in great diet books, restaurants provide special food diets in their menu, even fast food restaurants making adjustments in their menu, schools are doing their best to provide healthy lunch to students, nutrition stores and health clubs pop up all over. In a click of a button, television is constantly unveiling, with promise of minimal effort and commitment, a flood of special shows on how to get into the best shape of life and live longer. All these commercial advertisements are centered around the physical world and also are limited; and hundreds of thousands of health-conscious people don’t mind spending tones of money to unlock the mysteries to longer life.
The bible makes it clear that with long life God will satisfy us and give us His salvation. Meaning, God will give us knowledge and wisdom to prolong our days on earth as we desire. He will not let us live a useless life; He will show us the way of health to that long life. We find many prescriptions in the book of Proverbs 3:2-9:11-10:27-John 11:25 and so on.
Long life is found no other where but in Christ Jesus and it is available to every person on earth. Romans 10:13. All of what, the nutritionist, health industry, Doctors are doing, cannot offer anything near to the promise of Jesus Christ: “Free Eternal Life”.
Why are we not shouting this truth? Why should we, Christians, remain silent to such a great offer. Everyone, even a child who doesn’t even know anything yet about life, yearns to live long. I recall this scene: one day my husband and I went to this church and was parking the car, there was this little boy maybe 2 years old standing near his parents in the parking lot, saw the car driving to his direction, automatically ran and hid himself behind his mom. I still wonder what went through this little boy’s mind that made him run.
Everybody wants a little more time here on earth. Who in your neighborhood you know talk about wanting to stay in good shape, who in your family is doing all they can to live longer, who on your job wants to stay healthy, and who do you know have the innate desire to live longer?
Jesus’ diet is the best of all and it’s at no cost. We all can live an abundant, peaceful and pleasant life, we all can have healthy and long life not only here but also after our expiration date is due, and it’s all included in the package. It is the best full package deal you will ever have. We all can live a healthy, long life and eternal life if we practice Jesus’ diet.
Who wants to live longer?
