If we are the sons of God, if we have already begun to be his temples, if (after receiving the Holy Spirit) we live holily and spiritually, if we have lifted up our eyes from the earth toward heaven, if we have raised our hearts, full of God and Christ, to supernal and divine things, let us do nothing which is not worthy of God and Christ, as the apostle arouses and urges us. ~ St. Cyprian #ledbytheSpirit #ApostlesFast #DailyReadings #Coptic #orthodox

“This rejoicing is not separable from grief, for indeed it is rather deeply connected with grief. The one who grieves for his own wrongdoing and confesses it is joyful. Alternatively it is possible to grieve for one’s own sins but rejoice in Christ…. On this account he says “Rejoice in the Lord.” For this is nothing if you have received a life worthy of rejoicing…. He is right to repeat himself. For since the events are naturally grievous, it is through the repetition that he shows that in all cases one should rejoice.” – St. John Chrysostom #ApostlesFast #Rejoice #RejoiceInTheLord #Coptic #Orthodox #DailyReadings #ChurchFathers

It is not befitting to correlate God’s presence in our lives with how comfortable we are in this world. Problems and trials are not a sign that God has abandoned us.

Hear: And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: and He is the propitiator for our sins.

If you are weak it indicates that you aren’t in fellowship with the Holy Spirit who dwells in you. I am not saying your weakness is an indication that the Holy Spirit isn’t working in you. Nay, for the Holy Spirit is working, but the importance lies in your response. Do you work with Him? Do you use this power or not? If the seed of wheat is the power of life, and this power becomes apparent if the seed finds the right conditions for growth. If it finds the right conditions of water, earth, warmth and light, it will sprout, otherwise it’s innate life remains inoperative, not functioning. How many are those who have inoperative power?

“Take heed often to come together to give thanks to God and show forth His praise. For when you assemble frequently in the same place, the powers of Satan are destroyed, and the destruction at which he aims is prevented by the unity of your faith. Nothing is more precious than peace, by which all war, in heaven and earth, is brought to an end.” St. Ignatius of Antioch #rejoice #rejoicebeforeGod #praiseGod #RelocationofRelicsofStMark #StPopeKyrillosVI #Consecration #ChurchofStMinaMaryut #wonderworker #saints #ApostlesFast #dailyreadings #coptic #orthodox
