Philippians 1:21

Today, I’m reblogging a post from 3/10/13.  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I heard a sermon about St. Patrick and learned that he was English and not Irish.  So, although he wouldn’t wear an, “Irish and proud of it” t-shirt I saw advertised, I bet he would wear a, “Christian and proud of it” t-shirt.  One verse he lived by was Philippians 1:21 which says, “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”

The pastor challenged listeners to ask themselves if they’re living for Christ or something else.  If you or someone you know is living for something other than Jesus, that needs to change.  When it’s all said and done, all that matters is where you stand with Jesus.
