Paul put Others First
As I was reading through Philippians this morning I was struck by this verse.
But to remain in the flesh is more necessary on your account.
Philippians 1:24 ESV
Paul lived and gave his life living an Other's First lifestyle. Paul had desires to do other things but knew that God had called him to reach others with gospel and see them mature.
Paul wanted to depart this life and live eternally with Jesus BUT he put OTHERS FIRST and knew it was best to stay, lead and help others mature.
He is writing this to believers in the church at Philippi. I find this interesting. This passage shows that Paul was not just an evangelist, he was focused on seeing believers mature, grow and love others.
Refuge Church let's put OTHERS FIRST by living our lives focused on helping others mature in Christ.
