​The Christian faith is like a mustard seed that appears at first sight to be insignificant and weak. Its true strength and outer activity do not appear, except when various temptations start to attack it. Then, its fiery faith in the Lord starts to breathe, and a kind of divine love starts to provoke, not to be flared alone, but to flare every thing around. -St. Ambrose..#dailyreadings #coptic #orthodoxy #faith is a #giftfromGod #sympathises #compassionate when we feel #weakinfaith and #tempted #refuge

“He was led forth like a lamb; He was slaughtered like a sheep. He ransomed us from our servitude to the world, as He has ransomed Israel from the land of Egypt; He freed us from our slavery to the devil, as He had freed Israel from the hand of Pharaoh…. He is the One who covered death with shame and cast the devil into mourning, as Moses cast Pharaoh into mourning. He is the One Who smote sin and robbed iniquity of offspring, as Moses robbed the Egyptians of their offspring. He is the One Who brought us out of slavery into freedom, out of darkness into light, out of death into life, out of tyranny into an eternal kingdom, Who made us a new priesthood, a people chosen to be His own for ever. He is the Passover that is our salvation.” – Melito, Bishop of Sardis #goodfriday #pascha #holyfriday #fast #faith #orthodox #coptic #salvation #holyspirit #finished

“The Cross is the crown of victory. It has brought light to those blinded by ignorance. It has released those enslaved by sin. Indeed, it has redeemed the whole of mankind. Do not, then, be ashamed of the Cross of Christ; rather, glory in it. Although it is a stumbling-block to the Jews and folly to the Gentiles, the message of the Cross is our salvation. Of course it is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God. For it was not a mere man who died for us, but the Son of God, God made man.” -St. Cyril of Jerusalem #goodfriday #pascha #holyfriday #fast #faith #orthodox #coptic #salvation

By enduring the present afflictions with courage, while having no experience, God will grant you the possibility to endure any thing that – God forbids — would probably happen against your will. Therefore, if you seek heaven, and [your] concern [is] the life to come, nothing would ever harm you. Even the hosts of darkness (the devils) themselves, would never be able to harm us, unless we harm ourselves by ourselves; even though our body be torn to pieces, that would mean nothing to us, as long as our Spirit is sound. ~ St. John Chrysostom #faith #endurance #testedbyfire #dailyreadings #coptic #orthodox

He is faithful and unshaken, whether we say so or not. If then He is not at all injured by our denying Him, it is for nothing else than for our benefit that He desires our confession. For He abides the same, whether we deny Him or not. He cannot deny Himself, that is, His own Being. We may say that He is not; though such is not the fact. It is not in His nature, it is not possible for Him not to be, that is, to go into nonentity. His subsistence always abides, always is. Let us not therefore be so affected, as if we could gratify or could injure Him.
