Our Death Benefits

June 17, 2018 Speaker: Craig Malcolm Series: JOY, No Matter What

Topic: Philippians Passage: Philippians 1:21–1:26

The second half of verse 21 moves from the subject of life in Christ to death in Christ and teaches that there are great benefits in death for Christians. Paul says, “For me to live is Christ and to die is gain” (vs. 21). Two verses later he adds, “I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ for that is far better” (vs. 23). Death a gain! And death, far better! How these words express the triumphant outlook of Christians as they look towards eternity. 

    • Death for unbelievers
    • The best gets better
    • Three benefits of death
      1. Freedom from evil
      2. We will be like Jesus
      3. We shall be with Him forever
