Today we begin the book of Philippians, which is a letter to the believers in Philippi, a city which sat on an important transportation route in Macedonia. Once again, we see where Paul invested time with believers and the importance of their location to the spread of the gospel. In this first chapter we also read one of the most powerful passages from Paul in Philippians 1:21, For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. The point Paul is making is as long as we are living our lives for Christ, we win. Even if it leads to death, we still live.
