Living with the Humble Truth
Humility and Truth come together in spiritual development. One of the
paradoxes in Christianity - he who is humbled will be exalted - leads to another: he who would be leader should be servant of all.
Fr. John Brian weaves the gospel of Matthew (chapter 23) and the prophecy of Isaiah (chapter 40) into a sermon to bring us to the exalted place of living with the humble truth.
So, if Jesus Christ came to serve us, whom do His followers serve?
This sermon uses and refers to scripture readings appointed by the Syrian Malankara calendar and was give on Sunday, October 16, 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.
