Project: Memorizing Philippians-Week 4

Memory verses this week, Philippians 1:19-26:

19 For I know that as you pray for me and the Spirit of Jesus Christ helps me, this will lead to my deliverance.

20 For I fully expect and hope that I will never be ashamed, but that I will continue to be bold for Christ, as I have been in the past. And I trust that my life will bring honor to Christ, whether I live or die.


21 For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better.


22 But if I live, I can do more fruitful work for Christ. So I really don’t know which is better.


23 I’m torn between two desires: I long to go and be with Christ, which would be far better for me.


24 But for your sakes, it is better that I continue to live.


25 Knowing this, I am convinced that I will remain alive so I can continue to help all of you grow and experience the joy of your faith.


26 And when I come to you again, you will have even more reason to take pride in Christ Jesus because of what he is doing through me.

New Living Translation

Note
How amazing that Saint Paul voices his back and forth feelings about life and death and the advantages of either. It’s as if he invents the phrase, it’s not about me.
