Memorize Philippians 1:21


I’m going to tell you your future. Are you ready? Tomorrow there will be life or there will be death. It’s about all you can know about tomorrow. Paul is thinking about what to do with that reality in this verse. What if there is more life tomorrow? He knows Christ is with him and he has determined to know him more, obey him, trust him, and become more like him. If he lives he is committed to Jesus. That is what his life is, that is what will consume him. If he dies? Well, then he gains Christ and will know him fully and eternally enjoy him. Whether in life or in death all the hope we have is Jesus. This is the Christian life. Memorize this.
