Whom Does It Serve?
If Lent is the great preparation, whom does it serve?
Fr. John Brian gives a short sermon on the issues of service and temptation. "Selfishness is the major source of our struggles," he says.
He brings up the temptations of Jesus Christ during the 40-day fast after His baptism.
"May God fill us His love. For whom? For self? No for serving others," Fr. John Brian encourages us.
Fr. John-Brian speaks to further spiritual development and encouragement in this short inspirational sermon.
Please pray for Fr. John Brian who remains committed to us in the continuing development of Christian Spirituality.
This sermon uses and refers to scripture readings appointed by the Syrian Orthodox calendar and was given on Sunday, March 9, 2014 by Fr. John-Brian Paprock at Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Mission Chapel, Madison, Wisconsin.
Please pray for our mission chapel and all our spiritual helpers.
