Phil. 1:21-26 To Live is Christ.

Paul’s only reason for remaining in this world was that he might have continued fruit from his labour – in other words, it was profitable for the kingdom, for the church, and good for himself to be productive (vv. 21). The only thing more personally desirable was to be with Christ sooner (vv. 22-23). He would remain as long as there was a need for his services (v. 24), for the “progress and joy” of the saints, and they for his return (vv. 25-26).
