To Live Is Christ

Read Isaiah 49:1 through 52:12; Philippians 1:1–30

For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain (Philippians 1:21).

Paul had lived a hard life. He had testified about the grace of God to many people and experienced many difficult trials. After living a very fruitful life for the kingdom of God, Paul was ready to go home and be with Jesus.

Paul serves as an excellent example to the Church today. Surely he served long enough and hard enough to want and deserve a break. Yet he knew God had more work for him. He had to encourage a few more people, to spend himself a little further on behalf of God’s kingdom. His example nullifies any excuse a modern Christian might give to get out of serving.

To Paul there were only two options: to serve others or die. To go on living was to go on serving God by loving the people God had placed in his life. Christians must follow in Paul’s footsteps and find ways to lay down their own rights and to serve others.

Challenge for Today: Look for someone to serve with the love of Christ.

Quicklook: Philippians 1:20–30
