What do you expect?

For I fully expect and hope that I will never be ashamed, but that I will continue to be bold for Christ, as I have been in the past. And I trust that my life will bring honor to Christ, whether I live or die. Phil. 1:20

Paul’s hopes and expectations were about his own attitude and his effectiveness for Christ’s kingdom. While Christ may change our circumstances, maybe our hopes and expectations should be focused on who we are becoming in Him instead of what we hope to get from Him.

Lord, let my life bring honor to You.
