Seek the Lord While You’re Still on This World

 

Every Christian who wants to achieve salvation of his soul through eternal struggle and to chant along with the angels and Saints in the Kingdom of Heaven should seek for God.

The Holy Scripture advices “That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us” (Acts 17:27, Isaiah 58). Every Christian who wants to achieve salvation of his soul through eternal struggle and to chant along with the angels and Saints in the Kingdom of Heaven should seek for God. Everything that God created, from the thread of grass to the oak and the fir three that raise their peak to the sky, from the grain of sand to the highest mountains, from the worms who crawl in the dust and the almost invisible flies to the elephants and lions and eagles, the sun the moon and stars, they all, without exception ask man, the crown of all creation to seek for their Creator, God.
