When our world is falling apart and we’re trying to keep it all together, we need to understand that everything in our lives needs to be all about Christ. It has to be! And Pastor Ford will explain in Philippians 4, Paul is essentially saying, ‘If you kill me, I’ll go be with Christ. If you let me live, I’ll live for Christ. And if you make me suffer, I’ll get a crown from Christ.’ So, bring it on! It’s all about Jesus Christ!
