For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better. Philippians 1:21
As believers, we did not always live for Christ. We began to do so when God the Holy Spirit convinced us of sin, and when by grace we were brought to see the dying Savior making the final propitiation (offering) for our guilt. From the moment of the new and heavenly birth we begin to live for Christ. It is here that we begin to see Jesus as the one pearl of great price and little by little we become willing to part with all that we have for him alone.
