‘For we are unto God a sweet fragrance of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: – 2 Corinthians 2:15 Whether a person is saved or lost, the gospel continues to have its own power.

So also the gospel has a sweet savor to all, even if those who do not believe it are lost.’ – St John Chrysostom #coptic #orthodoxy #christianity #verseoftheday #copticorthodoxy #followhim

One might say that the whole body receives increase as each member partakes of the distribution of gifts proportionally. In this way … the members, receiving the distribution in accordance with their own capacities, are thus increased. The Spirit, flowing abundantly from above, comes into contact with all the limbs and distributes according to the ability of each one to receive, thus “enabling bodily growth.” . ~ St. John Chrysostom #joinedandknit #bodilygrowth #onebody #dailyreadings #coptic #orthodox

Faith without works is dead, and works without faith are dead also. For if we have sound doctrine but fail in living, the doctrine is of no use to us. Likewise if we take pains with life but are careless about doctrine, that will not be any good to us either. It is therefore necessary to shore up the spiritual edifice in both directions.~ St. John Chrysostom#faithandworks #salvation #dailyreadings #coptic #orthodox
