Philippians 1:19-26 The Joy Of Living For Christ
[Phl 1:19 NKJV]
For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,
[Phl 1:20 NKJV]
according to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death.
[Phl 1:21 NKJV]
For to me, to live [is] Christ, and to die [is] gain.
[Phl 1:22 NKJV]
But if [I] live on in the flesh, this [will mean] fruit from [my] labor; yet what I shall choose I cannot tell.
[Phl 1:23 NKJV]
For I am hard-pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, [which is] far better.
[Phl 1:24 NKJV]
Nevertheless to remain in the flesh [is] more needful for you.
[Phl 1:25 NKJV]
And being confident of this, I know that I shall remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy of faith,
[Phl 1:26 NKJV]
that your rejoicing for me may be more abundant in Jesus Christ by my coming to you again.
