The Cross is a way of life

It is the way of life

The Cross is not only the “symbol” or “sign” of Christ, but it is also way of life for the Christians or rather “THE way of life for the Christians”. Just as there is no true Christ without the Cross, so there is no true Christian without the Cross, that is, without participation in the Cross of Christ, as the Savior himself tells us: “He who does not lift up his cross and follow me, cannot be my disciple”(Luke 9:27).

Abbot Georgios Kapsanis of Gregoriou 

 

 

He leaves immediately

The power of Christ is greater than the power of the devil. When we keep saying the Jesus Prayer and we believe that we will be saved by our prayers, the temptation immediately goes away.
