  • Scripture: 

    For to me, living is Christ and dying is gain. If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labour for me; and I do not know which I prefer. (Philippians 1:21&22)



    Read those words of scripture again slowly; let them hit you with what the Apostle Paul, writing from prison, is saying.

    He goes on, “I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ; but to remain in the flesh is more necessary.” Paul is unable to decide which is preferable: dying so he can live with Christ; or remaining alive so he can continue to share the message of Christ’s love for everyone?
    Two things come out of the dilemma that Paul has. Firstly, he absolutely knows that when he passes through that moment of “death”, he will continue to live with Christ. Secondly, he absolutely knows the importance of telling others what God has done for them in sending Jesus Christ.
    While Paul wrestles with his dilemma, think about how important it was to Paul that everyone should know just how much Christ loves them?....How much he loves you. (He sent his Son to die for you.) How are you going to live today knowing that incredible, wonderful news?

    “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31)
    Now is still a time to care for your neighbour. Please, pick up the phone, speak to them. We are a strong community, a caring community. Together we are getting through this.

    Finally, I encourage you to use these prayers when you get up and when you go to bed:

    A prayer in the morning:

    Lord Jesus Christ, you said to your disciples, ‘I am with you always’. Be with me today, as I offer myself to you. Hear my prayers for others and for myself, and keep me in your care. Amen.

    A prayer in the evening:

    God our Father, by whose mercy the world turns safely into darkness and returns again to light,:we place in your hands our unfinished tasks, our unsolved problems, and our unfulfilled hopes, knowing that only what you bless will prosper. To your love and protection we commit each other and all those we love, knowing that you alone are our sure defender, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Keep safe. Keep well. Keep praying. God bless you. With love, David
