To Live is Christ, and to Die is Gain
Needy people pray. At this time we are realising our need. Paul thanks the Philippians them for praying for him because their prayers sustain him. He could rejoice in prison because he had an assurance that their prayers would turn out for his deliverance. He found the choice between life and death difficult where most would choose life! Coronavirus has brought death near and exposed our fears. The only way death could be gain for Paul was because his life was Christ. Death ushers the Christian into the presence of the One who give His life for them. Will it be gain for us?
