Bible Quote 1:21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
1:22 If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know!
1:23 I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far;
1:24 but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body.
1:25 Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith,

1:26 so that through my being with you again your joy in Christ Jesus will overflow on account of me.
1:27 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
1:28 without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved--and that by God.
1:29 For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for him,
1:30 since you are going through the same struggle you saw I had, and now hear that I still have.

2:1 If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion,
2:2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.
2:3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.
2:4 Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
