Philippians 1:19–21a For I know that for me this will turn out to salvation through your petition and the bountiful supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ. 20 According to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I will be put to shame, but with all boldness, as always, even now Christ will be magnified in my body, whether through life or through death. 21 For to me, to live is Christ….
