“I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you” (Galatians 4: 19).
It is a blessed moment when we are born again and a new heart is created in us after the image of God. It is a more blessed moment when in this new heart Christ Himself is born and the Christmas time is reproduced in us as we, in some real sense, become incarnations of the living Christ. This is the deepest and holiest meaning of Christianity. It is expressed in Paul’s prayer for the Galatians. “My little children, for whom I travail in birth again till Christ be formed in you.”
There will yet be a more glorious era when we, like Him, shall be transformed and transfigured into His glory, and in the resurrection shall be, in spirit, soul, and body, even as He.
Let us live, under the power of the inspiring thought, incarnations of Christ; not living our life, but the Christ-life, and showing forth the excellencies, not of ourselves, but of Him who hath called us “out of darkness into His marvelous light”; so our life shall be to all the re-living in our position of the Christ life, as He would have lived it, had He been here.
To my brother Archbishop Babb who has been called from works unto reward, these words are written after your departure. However, at this solemn moment of grief and mourning, these words are for those who have known you or to those that have come into your presence after your you answered the call to be with Him whom you live for and served in the spirit of love, meekness, mercy, and grace.
On behalf of my fellow ministers and members of The Mystical Order of Spiritual Baptist Inc and Starlight of Israel under the Leadership of Patriarch and Chief Apostle Sir Darrin Johnson (Cousin to the late Patriarch Dr. Granville Williams), extend our sympathy and condolences to your immediate family and the Spiritual members of Sons of God Apostolic Spiritual Baptist Faith.
