Bible: Philippians 1:18-26

1:18 What is the result? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is being proclaimed, and in this I rejoice.

Yes, 1  and I will continue to rejoice, 1:19 for I know that this will turn out for my deliverance 2  through your prayers and the help of the Spirit of Jesus Christ. 1:20 My confident hope 3  is that I will in no way be ashamed 4  but that with complete boldness, even now as always, Christ will be exalted in my body, whether I live or die. 5  1:21 For to me, living is Christ and dying is gain. 1:22 Now if I am to go on living in the body, 6  this will mean productive work 7  for me, yet I don’t know which I prefer: 8  1:23 I feel torn between the two, 9  because I have a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far, 1:24 but it is more vital for your sake that I remain 10  in the body. 11  1:25 And since I am sure of this, I know that I will remain and continue with all of you for the sake of your progress 12  and joy in the faith, 13  1:26 so that what you can be proud of may increase 14  because of me in Christ Jesus, when I come back to you. 15
