Receive the Crown of Glory (1Peter5)
In 1 Peter 5, Verse 4: And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.
Then in Verse 5:
5 ... All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another,
because, "God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble."
Fresh from the celebration of the festival day of Holy Transfiguration and the blessing of fruit, Fr John Brian gives a homily on the first verses of St Peter's First Epistle. Although typically read as pertaining to church leaders, Fr John Brian makes the case for these verse to apply to all Orthodox Christians.
This sermon uses and refers to scripture readings appointed by the Syrian Malankara calendar and was give on Sunday, August 14, 2011 by Fr. John Brian Paprock at Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Mission Chapel, Madison, Wisconsin.
"We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency may be of the power of God and not of us." 2 Corinthians 4:7.
