“God has given us a singular passion: to enjoy and display his glory in everything we do.”

“For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain.”  It's one of the most famous verses in the entire Bible.  But, what does it mean?  This week we will explore how to enjoy and display the glory of Christ in every area of life, and how to be prepared to truly die well.

Application Questions

1. How often do you take time to consider death?  What might be a benefit of you considering it more?

2. What does “to die is gain” mean to you?

3. What are the things in this world (apart from Christ) that are “really living” for you?

4. What is one thing in your life that you look to for joy and satisfaction that is really just “McDonalds”?

5. If God desires to keep you here (on Earth) for the next year, whose “progress and joy in the faith” would you remain here to help with?

6. What specific activities or plans could help you to meditate on God's word, kindling your heart to a sole passion for Christ?
