For me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. (Philippians 1:21)
Is your purpose, every day, to get closer and closer to Jesus? To bring him honor and glory with your every breath? To know him, and then know him better?
Do you look to the eventual end of your life as the fulfillment of all your earthly desires? The great graduation day when you receive all that you have earned, and all that you could never earn?
Oh, Beloved, I hope so.
As for me, well, I still let the mundane cloud my view of eternity far more often than I would like.
I’m going to make this verse my prayer today, with the hope that the power of the Holy Spirit will drive it deep into my soul and make it who I am.
Care to join me?
Happy Thursday, Beloved.
