Encouraged - A Journey to Healthy Relationships
Part 4 (Philippians 1:21-26)
21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
life = pre-destined + perseverance + preservation
22 If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know!
saved to serve, to grow, to oneness
23 I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far;
result (not evidence) of salvation - inclination (tape)
25 Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith,
26 so that through my being with you again your boasting in Christ Jesus will abound on account of me.
