Jesus is Life | Jesus Centered, pt 7
What's the essence of a Jesus centered life?
Paul makes a well-known statement in his letter to the Philippians that really gets at the heart of it. He says “to live is Christ and to die is gain" - Philippians 1:21.
Jesus = life!
So much so, that even death is gain.
In Philippians 1, Paul is filling the church in Philippi in on his situation and circumstances and in doing so, he’s providing a concrete pattern for following Jesus. So what’s going on with Paul? How is “life = Jesus; death = gain” being fleshed out in his life at that moment and what does that teach us about living a Jesus centered life?
