As Paul approaches the end of his earthly ministry, he is torn in his mind about departing to be with Christ (which is better by far) or remaining to minister to the church. Either way, he rejoices in the knowledge that Christ will be glorified.

We are encouraged to have our minds more often fixed on heaven and on the glory to be revealed in us, and to imitate the Apostle Paul in seeking Christ’s glory, whether by our lives or by our going home to be with the Lord.
