New Defender's Study Bible Notes

1:21 gain. See also Philippians 1:23 (“to be with Christ…is far better”) and II Corinthians 5:8 (“absent from the body…present with the Lord”). Although death is still an enemy, and we normally want to continue in this life as long as possible, we need not fear death as believers in Christ, for God has assured us that even life in our immaterial spirit body after death is better than this present life, for Christ is there!
