Philippians 1:21, “For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain.”
What does “to live is Christ” mean?
Verse 22, 24-25, it means the fruitful labor of living for the sake of others so that they might progress and rejoice in their faith in Christ.
And what does “to die is gain” mean?
Verse 23, it means knowing and feeling that to die and be with Christ is far better than even the best joys of this life…if we call dying “gain” because, through it, we receive Christ–He is glorified.
