Philippians 1:20 “According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.”
Magnified, as if one were using a telescope. The object that at a great distance appears so small but when viewed through a telescope the true proportions appear. In other words the distant is brought near. Our joy is that either our body or being should become a kind of telescope to show others Christ’s true greatness and to show how close He really is.
