"We Win"Stuart Jones Is it better to live or to die? Paul was faced with the dilemma of what his purpose was. In Philippians 1:21-24 Paul shares how he was torn between two desires: He longed to go and be with Christ, which would be far better for him. But for the sake of those who knew him, it would better if he continued to live. You’re still living, thus God has a purpose for you. There are those with whom you need to share the Gospel, those you need to serve in some capacity and those in whom you need to invest your life. Who will be better off because you chose to carry out God’s purpose for your life?
