Life and death (Phil. 1:21)

“For me,

Living is Christ,

And dying is gain.”

Ἐμοὶ γὰρ τὸ ζῆν Χριστὸς καὶ τὸ ἀποθανεῖν κέρδος.

Paul said, “For me (Ἐμοὶ γὰρ), living is Christ (τὸ ζῆν Χριστὸς), and dying is gain (ἀποθανεῖν κέρδος).”  Paul explained that for him, living was with Jesus Christ.  If he died it would be a gain or a profit because he would be with Jesus Christ forever.  Paul lived for Christ and he would die for Christ.  What do you think about life and death?
