E. Apostle Paul lived this life! Phil.1:20-27

1. According to my earnest expectation and hope, that in nothing shall I be put to shame, but with all boldness,

    as always, now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether by life, or by death. Phil.1:20

2. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Phil.1:21

3. But if to live in the flesh, this shall bring fruit from my work, then what I shall choose I know not. Phil.1:22

4. But I am in a strait betwixt the two, having the desire to depart and be with Christ;

    for it is very far better: yet to abide in the flesh is more needful for your sake. Phil.1:23-24

    I know that I shall abide, yea, and abide with you all, for your progress and joy in the faith. Phil.1:25

6. That your glorying may abound in Christ Jesus in me through my presence with you again. Phil.1:26

7. Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ: that, whether I come and see you and be absent,

    I may hear of your state that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one soul striving for the faith of the gospel. 1:27

***Be unbreakable bedrock for the defending of the truth in the New Testament Bible!
