the great work not completed
- the great work not completed
Beyond the deceptive superficiality of this modern world, the seeds of
creation still grow.
Even though, in Holy Orthodoxy, we take time to remember all those that came before us from Adam even into this present age, we believe and act like we are on our own.
Fr John Brian uses a short passage from the Gospel of John, Chapter 4, to bring us toward embracing life beyond the superficial, "reaping that which you did not sew," harvesting and partaking of the fruits of life everlasting, that is spiritual nourishment.
Fr. John Brian gives another inspirational message of Orthodox Christian practical spirituality.
O Lord, help us to the great work, laying aside all selfishness and
superficiality, reaping the fields that have been waiting for our labor white as snow. Let us share in the nourishment of the fruits of life everlasting even as we do the will of our Creator.
Please pray for Fr. John Brian who continues to encourage us in the
continuing development of Christian spirituality.
