What Is My Priority?

I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. Philippians 1:20

It is a strange statement. Paul’s hope that he will have enough courage to honor Jesus – either by the way that he lives or the way he dies. Writing from prison because of his ministry that death would come because he honors Jesus. This thought strikes me because I have never been in jail for anything and I live a very comfortable life. BUT I don’t want to live for comfort! I want to honor Jesus!

Father, give me courage in faith to live that Jesus is glorified. I know he was glorified in his crucifixion. If suffering, even death, is what you have planned for me, then prepare me and my family to face that with joy. If it is from comfort you would have me to glorify you, then let that be your choice—not mine. AMEN.
