Building Lives, In Life and In Death

Philippians 1:21 – 24 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me. Yet which I shall choose I cannot tell. I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better. But to remain in the flesh is more necessary on your account.

If there is to be an award for “Most-Driven Disciple” to be given out during the day of His coming, I think Paul will be one of its nominees. In fact, I would not be surprised if he won it!

Here was a man who became imprisoned for the faith and even in the midst of suffering, and persecution for the faith, kept his focus steadfast on the end point. He was so driven to advance the cause of Christ that he even contemplated staying alive and in that sense, prolonging his imprisonment and sufferings just so that he could continue to build lives!

His life gives us much to reflect on, especially when it comes to our God-given purpose in building lives.

How can we build our momentum towards touching and transforming lives to a point where, like the apostle Paul, it is no longer us who carry that vision but the vision of building lives that carries us?
