We are born to die.
If we have found nothing to die for, we lose our reason to live.
We will be like a lost wanderer in the world.
We have suffer great deterioration from the days of Adam and we will continue to deteriorate by entertaining ourselves to death.
II Timothy 3:13 NKJV
But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.
Thanks be to the Lord our God. We can die! Therefore we may live!
Ephesians 5:25 NLT
For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her
We must die.
We are not born to be entertain.
Entertainment is a great deterrent to following Christ.
Luke 18:22 NKJV
So when Jesus heard these things, He said to him, “You still lack one thing. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”
We are born to die.
To die for Christ in all that we do.
Philippians 1:21 NLT
For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better.
It is still not too late to die.
The Levite’s service began at 30 years of age.
Numbers 8:24 NKJV
“This is what pertains to the Levites: From twenty-five years old and above one may enter to perform service in the work of the tabernacle of meeting;
Few take 20 year to understand.
Some take 30. Most never knew.
Many stuck at the mental age of a child till the day they died.
A child's mentality is to enjoy life and seek pleasure.
A man is to die to self and live for Christ.
To be a priest in his family.
Better to start dying now than to be entertained to our death.
Die to self.
Die to entertainment.
John 12:24-26 NASB
Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal. If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also; if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.
A life without God is meaningless.
A life that seeks after pleasure will never be satisfied and will verily die in frustration.
Help us Lord to die to ourselves everyday. So that in dying we may all live.
Psalms 89:47-48 NLT
Remember how short my life is, how empty and futile this human existence! No one can live forever; all will die. No one can escape the power of the grave.
