Like the Holy One who called you,
be holy yourself in ALL your behavior.
(I Peter 1:15)
The creed you really believe is spoken not by your lips, but by your life.
Many of us feel remorse for our sins, yet we welcome what caused them.
(Mark the Monk)
Whoever wishes to attain to doctrinal knowledge
Must first pursue practical knowledge – that is,
The practice of purging sins and living in obedience to God
With all his strength and power.
For practical knowledge can be possessed without the doctrinal knowledge,
But theology can never be seized without practical knowledge.
The person who properly repents
Does not try to compensate for his past sins
By toiling now in the pursuit of godliness,
But rather through such toil seeks to not sin again.
And shall I
will, my Father,
according unto mine?
no, that never shall be, rather
blend my human will with Thine.
hush the hurrying, eager longing,
soothe the pangs of keen desire -
in my quiet
places, wishes thronging -
Lord, purge, though it be with fire.
work in me
to will and do Thy pleasure.
me, peaceful, reconciled be
at last, I am content with Thee.
