For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. But if I am to live on in the flesh, this will mean fruitful labor for me; and I do not know which to choose. But I am hard-pressed from both directions, having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for that is very much better; yet to remain on in the flesh is more necessary for your sake. Convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy in the faith, so that your proud confidence in me may abound in Christ Jesus through my coming to you again.
Philippians 1:21-26 NASB
Have you ever thought about the moment when your eyes gaze into the eyes of your Savior Jesus Christ?
I imagine it to be exuberant, overflowing with breathless joy, complete speechless awe that rips away every fear, hesitation, doubt, distrust, apprehension, inhibition. That will be true freedom. Abounding, pure, overflowing flood of love never experienced before.To say the least I am looking forward to that day.
we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord.
2 Corinthians 5:8
But today God has a plan for His kingdom and lost souls. Now is the time for fruitful labor.
Now is the time to go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:19-20 NASB
🌹God help me to be faithful to encourage brothers and sisters of faith to be fruitful and faithful to spread the gospel to the lost of this world, being diligent until the day our faith is made sight. For Your glory and in Jesus name I pray, amen.
