STAY OR GO, DIE OR CONTINUE
Philippians 1:21-24 New International Version (NIV)
21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. 22 If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know! 23 I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far; 24 but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body.
Here Paul states his purpose for life. Which is to bring the gospel to us. Even today we all cherish and respect all of Paul’s writing and his word of love, rebuke and how we should live according to the teachings of Jesus. Paul also knew just as we should, that to die means we will finally be with Christ. But death is Gods to give, not us. So, until we are taken home by God’s hand our job is to faithfully and continually preach and show others the love of Jesus Christ. So while waiting ON YOUR WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and show and tell everyone that you meet about the love of Jesus Christ and what he has and is doing in your life.
