HAVE YOU COUNTED THE COST

HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div

“Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ” (Philippians 3:8).

This is the happy season of ripening cornfields, of the merry song of the reapers, of the secured and garnered grain. But let me hearken to the sermon of the field. This is its solemn word to me.

  • You must die in order to live.
  • You must refuse to consult your own case and well-being.
  • You must be crucified, not only in desires and habits which are sinful but in many more which appear innocent and right.

If you would save others, you cannot save yourself. If you would bear much fruit, you must be buried in darkness and solitude.

My heart fails me as I listen. But, when Jesus asks it, let me tell myself that it is my high dignity to enter into the fellowship of His sufferings; and thus I am in the best of company. And let me tell myself again that it is all meant to make me a vessel meet for His use. His own Calvary has blossomed into fertility, and so shall mine. Plenty out of pain, life out of death: is it not the law of the Kingdom?

Do we call it dying when the bud bursts into flower?

“Finding, following, keeping, struggling,
Is He sure to bless?
Saints, apostles, prophets, martyrs,
Answer, ‘Yes.”‘

So many people want to reap what they have not sworn. That is stealing. In order for you to reap your harvest, you have to prepare the soil and then plant the seeds.  You have to water the land and care for the siblings. You cannot destroy the plants at its tender stage. You should not interfere with the sanctity of the saints in your care. You should be feeding them the word of God and not the cares of this present world, gossip and anything that will hinder the growth of the believer. You have to tend to your garden and wait for the day of harvest. Remember the sower as Jesus gave the parable. Let us take note.

As God takes us through this month of August celebrating seven years of online ministry, I pray that the daily messages will continue to reach the hearts of loved ones around the world and that souls will come to the saving knowledge of Almighty God.
