Sermon 15 May 2022 (Easter 5)

You are not what you have not become by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  “You are not what you have not become” – Gregory of Nyssa (335-394 A.D.) In recent years we’ve seen great changes in the world and in our lives; in coming years even greater changes will come. If we follow the Holy Spirit even when He leads us in a direction we would rather not go; if we trust in God’s surpassing greatness over our own thoughts and desires; if we allow Christ to prepare us for service and ministry during the challenging times that are to come – then we will not only bear the “peaceable fruit of righteousness” but lasting fruit for the kingdom.
