What are the values the believer should have? Paul puts the situation in perspective. He states that living in this physical world means continuing his ministry as a proclaimer of Jesus Christ. On the other hand, his opportunity to die is not so bad in that he will not be ashamed before Jesus but is confident he will be accepted. Confidence in eternity and certainty in his current mission provide Paul with great rejoicing. They can provide the church the same great source of joy.
