To live is Christ

last night I was given a wonderful opportunity to speak at Swansea Metropolitan University CU (Prifysgol Fetropolitan) about the apostle Paul.

Now that is a big topic but I prayed and God revealed Philippians 1:12-21 to me. It is a great passage on how Paul rejoices in situations where I would struggle to do so. But the joy was looking at why Paul could rejoice…because for Paul to live was Christ.

It was a joy for me to speak on this topic and just challenge myself, asking who or what do I live for? And how I need to look at Jesus for who he really is. I cannot make myself live for him, but I look at him, look at how he has loved and loves me and this surely must transform my heart.

If you think I am going to put my whole talk up here think again. But read Philippians 1, and ask God to transform your heart that for *insert name* to live might be Christ.

Rejoice.

am Jamie, and I am a Christ follower. I love Jesus but more importantly he loves me and made the ultimate sacrifice of his son so that all the things I have done, and will do, have been forgiven. And now I know God, and I pursue to know him more. Motivated and transformed by his grace I live for God, to glorify him by enjoying him.
