Philippians 1:21
For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
Paul had suffered greatly (2 Cor. 11:24–28), so no one could blame him for wanting to go home to heaven and into the comforting arms of the Savior—his eternal reward (2 Tim. 4:7, 8). Few of us would choose the beatings, suffering, persecution, imprisonment, and abuse he endured. However, Paul understood that people’s eternal destinations were much more important than his personal comfort or safety (2 Cor. 1:8–10; 4:8–18). That was why for him to remain here on earth meant to obey God and preach the gospel.
