Verse of the Day (August 18, 2020)

Verse of the Day (August 18, 2020) #BMSeminary – {For} explains why Paul is just as happy to magnify the Lord by death as by life (v. 20). It is because to him, {to live is Christ}. He means that living consists in serving and glorifying the Son of God; apart from this his life has neither meaning nor purpose. But why is Paul just as content to magnify Christ by death? Because to him {to die is gain}; that is, even though living and serving God are good, death is a graduation to something better: it is a promotion to the heavenly presence of Christ and perfect fellowship with Him. [KJV Study Bible, HarperCollins]
