Philippian Bits – 1:24

For this series in Philippians, I am going to limit each post to one verse, and hopefully produce a short, succinct read for my friends who follow.

1:24   But to remain in the flesh is more necessary on your account.

Given that Paul has considered the resurrection of his own body, and the glory of being with Christ, he turns to the immediate need of others.

Is this not typical of One who follows after the Master. Taking personal desires, and subjugating them to the needs of others. Self sacrifice for the life of another is the hallmark of love that the Lord exhibited on the cross for each of us.

  1. Hmmm. Paul’s writings speaks to mortality and a life of service. His groans and longing to be with Christ and his conflicts with wanting to be around for the saints. Yet he kept the faith and finished his race. Bless you. 🙏🏾
