Amaro greek.orthodoxy
greek.orthodoxy On 14th September we celebrate the feast of the Elevation of the Venerable and Life-Giving Cross.
The sign of the Cross in the time around the Birth and Death of Jesus Christ, was a symbol of torment and shameful death. However, now the Cross is a symbol of salvation and victory in Christ for all Christians.

One quote from the Bible emphasises this point: "Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross and follow me" (Mark 8: 34). This quote is very beautiful indeed. To 'deny ourselves' means to not follow our own will, but the Will of God, by listening and following his teachings.

To 'take up our cross' means to accept all our troubles, burdens and struggles, whether they be physical, mental, emotional, at work, at school, at home, with others, or with ourselves, and to accept them all, no matter how challenging they may be to cope with.

The Apolytikion sung on this very blessed day is as follows:
"Σώσον, Κύριε, τον λαόν Σου και ευλόγησον την κληρονομίαν Σου, νίκας τοις βασιλεύσι κατά βαρβάρων δωρούμενος και το σον φυλάττων, δια του Σταυρού Σου, πολίτευμα"

Or in English: "O Lord, save Your people and bless Your inheritance. Grant victory to Orthodox Christians over their enemies, and protect Your people with Your Cross".

im_a_god_girll_ God's got a dream for you.
I'm using 1 Samuel 16 as an example as to how god has a plan for us. David was just an ordinary Shepard but god had chosen him to be king one day and he had many plans for David. David had many obstacles before making it to the throne but God was with him.
God uses small things to accomplish big things! God doesn't need us like we need him, god wants us!! Do you want him? Do you trust in his dream for you? Will you follow his plan? (1 Samuel 13:14)
You can not do God's will, unless you want to do it.

sovereign_grace Proverbs 16:16 - It is of more value to get wisdom and knowledge than silver and gold. Why do you desire after things that will perish, rather that that which is eternal? Do not store up your treasures on earth because he who does will perish with his treasures.

In reality, why would any of us want to choose things of this world over Jesus? We are all broken sinners and in need of a saviour, none of us can save ourselves through 'good' works or riches. We need him!

walkthesameofficial Remember that God never let anyone down and He will NEVER start with you. He is a God who loves and cares just as a father does (Matthew 7:11). God is working behind the scenes of your life, slowly and gradually revealing His beautiful and amazing plan for you. If you are wondering where your answer is, know that it is in the works and is on its way to you!
