For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Philippians 1:21
Sir Francis Bacon said, I do not believe that any man fears to be dead, but only the stroke of death. Woody Allen said, Im not afraid to die. I just dont want to be there when it happens.
Its not death thats so frightening. Its the dying that scares us. As Paul faced imprisonment and the prospect of dying in a jail cell, he shared his view about life and death: To live is Christ, and to die is gain (Phil. 1:21). What a perspective!
Death is our enemy (1 Cor. 15:25-28), but it does not possess the finality that so many dread. There is something waiting for believers beyond this lifesomething better.
Someone has said, What the caterpillar thinks is the end of life, the butterfly thinks is just the beginning. George MacDonald wrote, How strange this fear of death is! We are never frightened at a sunset.
I love this paraphrase of Philippians 1:21, To me, living means opportunities for Christ, and dyingwell, thats better yet! (TLB). During our physical life, we have opportunities to serve Jesus. But one day, we will actually be in His presence. Our fear will melt away when we see Him face to face.
Thats the better yet the apostle Paul is talking about!
Lou Costello before his kid drowned. A force of comic nature.

Great comedy writing and performances!
G’evening all. A good night for a good laugh!
A commander takes a miscreant into his office and applies certain punishments, usually a fine and/or reduction in rank. The solider receiving non-judicial punishment may appeal to the next higher level or refuse the Article 15, demanding a court-martial.
As a battalion adjutant, I was involved in administering many of these.
Buster Keaton also starred in the only "silent" Twilight Zone episode.
