The Sunday Set-Up for August 17, 2014

“To live is Christ, to die is gain!” 

Most of us don’t spend much time considering our own deaths, but Paul wrote these words while imprisoned in Rome (most likely). He knew there was a possibility of a sentence of death. Yet he rejoiced that his imprisonment was causing other Christians to speak about Christ more boldly. You may not have any current fears of death looming over your head but do fears of other things steal your joy? Does the worry of what people might think cause you to rarely speak of Christ? Do you yet know the fullness of what it means to say with Paul “to live is Christ, to die is gain?” 

Join us this Sunday as we explore Paul’s exhortation to boldness and joy.
