Paul's Life for Christ (Philippians 1:19-26)

“Paul Preaching at the Ruins” by Giovanni Paolo Panini (1692-1765)

19For I know this: it will lead to my deliverance through your prayer and support of Christ Jesus’ Spirit. 20Accoring to my eager expectation and hope, I want to be disgraced in nothing, but rather always in public and now in my body Christ is exalted, whether through life or through death. 21For to me, living is Christ and dying is gain. 22But if living in body is fruitful work for me, then I do not know which I will choose. 23For, you see, at this present time I am distressed between the two, because I want to leave be with Christ, for it is much better to be with Christ. 24But, it is necessary to remain alive for you. 25I know, since I am convinced of this, that I will remain and stay with you all in your progress and joy in the faith. 26Therefore, the reason for your boasting will abound in Christ Jesus because of my return back to you. (Phil 1:19-26)

I. PAUL WOULD NEVER BE ASHAMED BECAUSE HE LIVED FOR CHRIST (1:19-21).
