In Christ Alone
Keith Getty/Stuart Townend
Arr. Jonathan Rathbone

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My comforter, my all in all
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones he came to save
Till on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For ev’ry sin on him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground his body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious day
Up from the grave he rose again
And as he stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am his and he is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No pow’r of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from his hand
Till he returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand

    Lazarus the resurected friend of Lord Jesus was the first Cyprus Bishop here for 30 years asfter resurected by Lord Jesus. The Cyprus Church, was the second Christian Church creaded by the Apostles after the one in Jerusalem.
    Without  THE MYSTERY (Holy Sacrament) OF PRIESTHOOD, Lord Jesus can not possibly be the head of the Body the Church for Salvation!  The Church created by the Holy Spirit the day of Pentecost is/was not a building or a human made organization, but a living god man organism that is Divine.
    This is how Paul verifies that the Church is the Body of Christ! [Colossians 1: 24] “Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church:    
     Most of the Apostles became Bishops after Pentecost Apostles who became Bishops https://www.goarch.org/-/the-basic-sources-of-the-teachings-of-the-eastern-orthodox-chur-1

    THE MYSTERY OF PRIESTHOOD was founed by Christ with His selection of the Apostles who He gave the authority to redeem sins (John 20:23), to hold Divine Thanks and to teach. After the ascention of Lord Jesus the Apostles designated their successors with the “laying of hands”
    Priesthood has an uninterrupted continuity of ordinations in the Greek Orthodox Churh which is known as “Apostolic Succetion” which also provides the steadfast proof of the authenticity and purity of the Church
    Apostolic  Succession                                                                                                            https://orthodoxwiki.org/Apostolic_succession
    These ordinations have allways taken place by the “laying of the hands”  [A Tim 4:14  14]  “Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery”. [B Tim 1:6]    “Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands” Lord Jesus never ceazes to be the ONLY  High Priest of the Church that has the inviolable of Priesthood [Hebrew 7: 24]  “But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood”. Christ is the one performing all the Mysteries (Holy Sacraments) because He is invisibably present! The preists those who were ordained the “lend” their bodies and their hands to Christ and they (throught their bodies) make Him visible to the Christians present in His Church!
    [Hebrew 8:1] Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;[Hebrew 4: 14-16]  14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
    Priesthood is not a cosmic authority but a spiritual one. The purpose of Priesthood is the ministry of the nations. Accorting to Orthodoxy the political authority is understood to be a ministry as (minister=ministry) of all the peoles because there is no other higher purpose of life than Union with God, man’s Theosis and the return to His presence!
        The priest is a spiritual father and faithfull to all of his spiritual children. This is why the highest of title and honour to a priest is when they address him as Father. His mission like allways from the begining of Chrisitanity must be illuminating and quiding in leading the world to the Truth and the Grace of Christ passing on this way the message of the Salvation of man and the human sosiety.
            The work of priesthood takes place on earth but in essence belongs to the deeds of heavenly powers and this is natural because the Church was not founded by an angel or any other creational power but by Paraklitos (the Holy Spirit) who made it possible for men who “wear” lether tunics (human bodies) to  become capable to do the work of angels! This is why the priest must be pure the heart at all times as thought he is standing along with angels The Churche’s Saints are allways contemporary because they offer all of their lives in the ministry of the world and its problems.

    The word Salvation means "salvation from death" and the wor"death" means the eternal separation of man from God!
