The man of God said this while delivering his sermon at the birthday service for Pastor Yerima El-Samaila of the Faith Foundation Church, who turned 70 years earlier this week.
Pastor Adeboye stressed on how good and sweet longevity is but that for him, he does not want to live up to 120 years.
“It is not how long you live but how well you spend your life, I don’t want to be 120 years old. Longevity is good but there is a limit. People don’t want to die because they don’t know where they are going; I know where I am going. I have seen heaven, I have seen my house in heaven, I know what is waiting for me there, heaven is beautiful, and I can’t wait to go there. I want to finish what I have to do here and finish it well, any of us can go at any moment we have to get ready for home,” he said.
He challenged Christians to be committed to God more than ever before, saying that: “Many Christians are getting distracted from God”.
Christians should not forget the most important reason why they are here, adding that it was to show God’s glory.
He advised other men of God to ‘stop playing church and become committed to the almighty God and do their utmost so that when they are leaving they can also say they have fulfilled their purpose’.
Niger state Governor represented by the Commissioner for Information, Mr Jonathan Tsado Vatsa, a former information minister, Professor Jerry Gana, clergymen from different denominations attended the ceremony.
