Margaret and Sheren continue to pursue the heart of Jesus with patience through the tough times.
“For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. 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!”
Paul had choices in his later years.
- Continue with his ministry, so he could be even more powerful/famous apostle.
- Retire and reap the benefit of his lifetime achievement.
- Find a way to die in a dramatic fashion, so he could make a historic statement with his death.
Yet he desired to die and be with Christ whom he loved so much.
And he faithfully carried out his ministry until his rather quiet death.
I found amazing beauty in his faithful heart. His love for Christ was beyond life or death.
Jesus was precious to Paul beyond himself.
