“St. Paul is not talking here about those sins that we all recognize and confess as such. Rather he is speaking about preferring one person before another and making invidious comparisons of moral behaviors. Only God, who knows all our secret doings, can judge that sort of thing with accuracy. Only He knows what is more and what is less worthy of punishment.” -St. John Chrysostom #Pentecost #Coptic #Orthodox #DailyReadings #ChurchFathers

“By faith Enoch was taken up and did not taste death.” If he had not believed that the observation of the commandment could introduce him again to the place from which the house of Adam had come out because of the transgression, he would not have applied himself to please God for three hundred years. In fact, “without faith,” that is, if that person did not believe that the true God exists and “rewards those who seek him,” he would have never tried to please and seek Him.” – St Ephrem The Syrian #Pentecost #SeekHimDiligently #Coptic #Orthodox #DailyReadings #ChurchFathers

“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.” – John‬ ‭16:13‬ . “This is our renewal; it makes of us an image of God again. This happens through the regenerating washing of the Holy Spirit that restores us so that we become God’s children. We become a new creation again through the communion of the Spirit who delivers us from what was old.” – St. Basil the Great . “This does not mean hearing whatever real, palpable words, but rather means the unity of will and strength that is in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Whatever the Spirit says, the Son says here (Jn 16: 13). Let us learn that what the Spirit says, the Son also says and what the Son says the Father also says. For, the work of the Trinity is one in thought and one in characteristic.” – St. Ambrose #SpiritofTruth #Comforter #HolySpirit #Paraclete #Pentecost #guideyouintoalltruth #coptic #orthodox #dailyreadings
