Good morning all,
The word of the day is “gain.” Paul understood that his entire life was about glorifying JC. The Apostle was completely consumed with the understanding that everything in his live was about the Savior. While he was alive Paul did a ton to make sure others knew the love that came from God. And even if he died, which was always a possibility Paul could become martyred at any time, it would be for the benefit of the Gospel… so it was like a win-win.
“For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.”
My question is: what will it take for you to die to the stuff that you know is in the way of a complete relationship with the Maker? My prayer is that you examine your priorities and realize that for you to live is to advocate something much bigger than just you. God wants us to live continually, and within that we must learn to die to ourselves a little more each day in this process. Take a few moments today and thank God for the ability to change a little bit more for the good…
Praying for you,
