My text will come from Philippians 1:23. For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:
The Apostle Paul tells the Philippians that he is on the fence when it comes to staying with them to encourage, teach, admonish, and exhort them or to depart and be with Christ which he says is “far better.”
It truly is far better to be with Christ because then and only then will all our troubles be over. No more sin or temptation, sickness, sadness, heartbreak, war, bills, hospitals, funeral homes, cemeteries, famines, terrorism, violence, and no more pain.
But the Lord knows that he has a job for us to do and we as Christians are here to glorify God and to minister to others.
But when our time is up on earth it is truly far better to be with the Lord.
My prayer is that you get saved so when you die, you will be with the Lord, which is… far better.
