Scriptures: Philippians 1:25-26 25Knowing this, I am convinced that I will remain alive so I can continue to help all of you grow and experience the joy of your faith. 26And when I come to you again, you will have even more reason to take pride in Christ Jesus because of what he is doing through me. (NLT)
Nugget: In the scriptures prior to these, Paul mentions that his life would provide honor to God if Paul lived or died. He was doing what God called him to do. His “dilemma” was knowing he would be willing to die for Christ, but also willing to live in order to be an example of God on Earth for those around him. Paul knew he had much more work to do for God & would be fruitful in it.
There’s so much that God is doing in us & through us during our time here on Earth. We are examples of God’s love & can show our faith to others, helping them to grow. Let’s live to make our time count for God, others, & ourselves.
Quote: “A man ought to live so that everybody knows he’s a Christian.” -D.L. Moody
