ABIDING IN CHRIST

HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div

“For me to live is Christ and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:21).

The secret of a sound body is a sound heart, and the prayer of the Holy Ghost for us is, that we “may be in health and prosper even as our soul prospers.”

We find Paul in the Epistles to the Philippians expressing a sublime and holy indifference to the question of life or death. Indeed he is in a real strait, whether he would prefer “to depart and be with Christ,” or to remain still in the flesh.

The former would indeed be his sweetest preference, but the latter would be at the same time a joyful service. His only object in wanting to live is to be a blessing. “To abide in the flesh is more needful to you.”

Having reached this state of heart, it is beautiful to notice how quickly he rises to the victorious faith necessary to claim perfect strength and health. Because it is more needful to you that I abide in the flesh, he adds, “I know that I shall continue with you all, for your furtherance and joy of faith.” Lord, help me to-day to “count not my life dear unto myself that I may finish my course with joy and the ministry that I have received of Jesus.

And so today, as you join with me to celebrate the 7th Anniversary since this website http://www.mysticalorderinc.org came online. I want to thank God for all who witnessed the launching and commission of this online service. I thank our Patriarch and Chief Apostle HAH, Sir Darrell for the message he delivered to launch the message https://mysticalorderinc.org/2013/08/18/a-message-from-t…residing-prelate/.

God has been our tower of strength to allow over 3000 messages online through this medium and reaching almost 3 million visitors to the site. This was a vision and I thank God for standing by my side and for His guidance.
