“This living water is great, for it is the gift of the Holy Spirit…may it flow within me, may this that gives eternal life flow in and over me. May the Source flow on us and not far away from us; for wisdom says: “Drink water from your own cisterns, and running water from your own well. Should your fountains be dispersed abroad, streams of water in the streets?” (read Prov. 5:16-17). How can I protect my pots from suffering the cracks caused by sin, and avoid the leaking of the waters of eternal life? Teach us, O Lord, teach us as You have taught Your apostles saying: “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and were thieves break in and steal” (Matt, 6: 19-20)” St Ambrose #SamaritanWoman #LivingWater #EternalLife #HolySpirit #HolyFifty #ChristisRisen #TrulyHeisRisen #dailyreadings #coptic #orthodox

Death is an intruder into humanity. When God created man, He created him for life. He breathed in his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul. God willed life and immortality for man. But when man’s freedom deviated towards sin, he brought death upon himself, because ‘the wages of sin is death’ (Rom.6:23). Thus death entered into the world, and all die. For this reason, the Resurrection rejoices us, for it is victory over death and the returning of life to man’s nature once more Pope Shenouda lll . . #dailyreadings #coptic #orthodox #resurrection #joy #victory #ohdeathwhereisyoursting #eternallife #orthodoxy #holy50days

“Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall never see death.” John 8:51 . “Indeed, the Lord knew of another death and He had come to save us all from it- the second death, the eternal hellish death, the death of condemnation with Satan and his angels. This is the real death, whereas the other death is merely a transition. What is the other death? It consists of abandoning the body, dismantling its heavy burden and putting it away so that it no longer drags a person downwards into hell.

“whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.” – John 4:14 . “Since our nature has deteriorated and become as hard as stone due to the worship of idols, and has become frozen in the cold of atheism and unable to progress; therefore the Sun of Righteousness arose (Mal. 4:2).In this bitter cold, the coming of the spring appeared, and the warm southern winds erased all traces of the cold; while the shining rays of the Sun brought warmth to the whole world. Consequently, the human race that had turned into stone on account of the cold, became embraced by the warmth through the Holy Sprit who is the rays of the word of God. It is in this manner that the Holy Spirit once more becomes like the water that grants eternal life (Jn, 4:14)… ‘Who turned the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a fountain of waters (Ps 114:8).” – St. Gregory of Nicea #LivingWater #HolySpirit #EternalLife #SamaritanWoman #dailyreadings #coptic #orthodox #ChristIsRisen
