[Christ], being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. (Phil 2:6-8)
[...] in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. (Phil 1:20b-21)The true radical message of Christianity is unwelcome, even in some sections of our Christian circles. What we say we believe is disconnected from how we live, and this has effects in our society. Christ should not be an important part of our lives, He should be our life. Paul was obsessed with Jesus Christ. The world today is growing up with the worst perversions and don't even know what morals are anymore. Our lives as Christians need to be on display.
To live was to serve Christ
To die was to see Christ
