A Quick Take Away: Living

Philippians 1:23,24 “For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.”

To depart” the idea being like the ship that has cast off her moorings and set sail. The place to reside is at the dock but ships are made to be at sea.

While the goal is heaven, once saved that is guaranteed, “to abide” or to live for Christ part, is to help others both to be saved and to grow as Christians and is the more needful thing.
