Life Verse: I WinStuart Jones In Philippians 1:21-23, Paul shows us his struggle between living on earth and his strong desire to be with our Savior. He says in verse 21, "For me, to live is Christ and to die is gain." Paul understood that while alive on this earth, his mission was to share the love of Jesus with the world and to let every ounce of strength, every breath, every thought be only about Jesus. And although he wrestled with being here and being with Jesus, he took every opportunity to live for Jesus, knowing his reward would come. Eternal life.
