Pastor Sonny concludes our miniseries on “Fearless Living” by explaining how the Apostle Paul’s main goal and passion in life was for Christ to be magnified and glorified, whether by life or by death, and how like Paul’s life, we should pursue fruitful labour in faithful obedience to God’s will for the benefit of others and the glory of God.
21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. 22 If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me. Yet which I shall choose I cannot tell. 23 I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better. 24 But to remain in the flesh is more necessary on your account. 25 Convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all, for your progress and joy in the faith, 26 so that in me you may have ample cause to glory in Christ Jesus, because of my coming to you again.
