SPIRITUAL REFLECTION

23rd Sunday After Pentecost - The Good Samaritan - A Commentary By Blessed Theophylact

Saturday, November 26, 2016

25-28. And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted Him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said unto him, What is written in the law? How readest thou? And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. And He said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live. This lawyer was not only arrogant and proud but also deceitful, as is shown by what follows. He comes to put the Lord to the test, and he imagined that he would trip the Lord by the answer which He gave. But the Lord leads him to the very law of which the lawyer boasted such great knowledge. See how precisely the law commands us to love God. Man is more perfect than all other created things, being in some respect like all created things, but in addition having something exceptional. For example, there is a part of man that is like stone, for he has hair and nails which are unfeeling, like a stone. And he is also in part like a plant, in that he grows and is nourished and engenders his own kind, just as plants do. He is in part like the irrational animals, in that he has emotions, and becomes angry, and desires. But unlike all other animals, he is also in part like God, in that he has a mind. Therefore the law teaches that man must give each and every part of himself entirely to God, and must expend all the forces of his life in loving God. When the law says, with all thy heart, it speaks of that force of human life that is purely physical and organic, a force likewise present in plant life. Read more...

On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 122: What Are Your Gifts For? (11/27/16)

Sunday, November 27, 2016

“And His gifts were that some should be apostles, some prophets, some evangelist, some pastors and some teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ.” (Ephesians 4:11-12 RSV)

Paul is very clear that the gifts that God gives us are for the “ministry, for the building of the body of Christ.” And you thought that the gifts God gave you were so you could live comfortably, WRONG!

You see, brothers and sisters in Christ, our purpose in life, the time God gives us, is to seek eternal salvation, continual communion with God, THEOSIS! Read more...
