Total Christ Focus

today's reading.
Philippians 1:12-18  I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel...

So Paul's in prison and one of the first things he wants people to know is that he's ok with that... Actually that he's rejoicing over this fact because his imprisonment "has really served to advance the gospel" (Phil. 1:12). What an example of putting aside all things "self" and living totally for Christ. 

So has there been a time in your life when your circumstances weren't necessarily the best but you were alright with that because of what the Lord was doing? What helps you put aside "self" to live for Christ? Tami W.
