Chapter 41

38-40. Secret of Fidelity—Joseph carried his religion everywhere, and this was the secret of his unwavering fidelity (Manuscript 59, 1897). 1BC 1097.6

38. Men Recognize a Living Connection With God—He who receives Christ by living faith has a living connection with God, and is a vessel unto honor. He carries with him the atmosphere of heaven, which is the grace of God, a treasure that the world cannot buy. He who is in living connection with God may be in humble stations, yet his moral worth is as precious as was that of Joseph and Daniel, who were recognized by heathen kings as men with whom was the Spirit of God (Manuscript 54, 1894). 1BC 1097.7
