Bible Reading: Phillipians 1:16-30

20 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. 21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.

When I am living by God's standards, and I can show Christ's love by the way I live my life, then I am really living and not just existing so real living for me is when I am Christ like in the way I live and then when I die I really gain, because I will be living with Christ forever in eternity. I would love to be remembered when I die as someone who was totally committed to living a life to serve and please my Lord and Saviour.

27 Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in one spirit, contending as one man for the faith of the gospel

I have not always lived my life in a Christ like way, and when I don't, I am giving the Gospel of Christ a bad name. Unsaved people are looking in and when they see me, a person who claims to be a Christian and living by God's standards, do something that contradicts God's standards, then why would they want to have anything to do with God or Jesus? I want to live a life as a testimony of God's awesome power and show them how God has worked in my life and has blessed me.

29 For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for him

People may not like me because I am a Christian, and I may loose friends because of it, but Jesus suffered and died a horrible death for me the least I can do is suffer for him.

My Prayer: That I will learn to live a more Christ like life, and do things that are not contradictory to God's Biblical standards, which I claim to live by, by admitting I am Christian amid live by these standards. I don't want to be a hypocrite.
