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

“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

“For many come to faith, but few are brought into the Heavenly Kingdom. And many serve God with their tongue, but turn from Him in their lives. From this we should reflect on two things. The first is that no one should presume concerning his own salvation; for though he is called to the Faith, he knows not whether he will be chosen to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. The second is, that no one should take it upon himself to despair of his neighbor, whom he sees steeped in vice because no one knows the richness of the Divine mercy.”- St. Gregory the Dialogist of Rome #salvation #resurrection #mercy #risen #coptic #orthodox #dailyreadings #divine

“As a spark falling into the wide sea would straightway be quenched, or would become invisible, being overwhelmed by the multitude of the waters, so also all human wickedness, when it falls into the pool of the divine fountain, is more swiftly and easily overwhelmed, and made invisible, than that spark.”
St John Chrysostom

“Who is He? He is the Word of Truth, the Word of non-corruption, who renews man, by bringing him back to the truth. He is the goad that provokes to salvation, He is the One who destroys perdition, and drives away death. He builds the temple of God in men, and makes them His dwelling place. 
The sick are in need of a Saviour.
The lost need a guide.
The blind are in need of someone to lead them to light.
The thirsty need the living fountain, from which, if someone drinks, one will never thirst. The dead need life.
The sheep are in need of a shepherd.
And the children need a teacher.
All humanity is in need of Jesus!” St Clement of Alexandria #FeastofTheCross #Salvation #onlyinChrist #dailyreadings #coptic #orthodox

Evangelists don’t just extend human beings’ lives a few years on earth. Rather, they guarantee unlimited numbers of years or rather  an eternal number of years in heaven. They don’t open the eyes of the blind to enjoy seeing things for some time. Rather, they open the eyes of all to see eternal truth and enjoy the afterlife. They don’t solve the temporary earthly problems (actually they may add some problems to those who start believing in Christ and following His teachings). Rather, they solve the most serious and complicated problems I.e. eternal death, corruption and evil – Abouna Daoud Lamei . . #evangelise #evangelist #preachthegoodnews #salvation #dailyreadings #coptic #orthodox
