To Live is Christ

Scripture: For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.  Philippians 1:21 NIV

Observation: Paul speaking to the Philippians.

Application: As I grow as a Christian I find myself thinking about the Lord throughout the day. I think about what Christ went through for me and it sobers me.  I constantly speak to him about my wife, children, and life in general.  The instant that I commit a sin I feel a heaviness in my heart and I immediately want to repent and make amends.  I believe that this is what Paul meant when he said “…to live is Christ…”  I don’t ever want to hurt or offend the Lord. I only want to live for him.

Prayer: Father, thank you for putting up with a sinner like me. I pray to be less offensive with each passing day. I love you. Amen
