Life of Faith, book by H. H. Pope Shenouda III

82- Test Your Faith In The Extent Of Caring About Your Eternity

 

7- Test Your Faith In The Extent Of Caring About Your Eternity:

Do you concentrate your mind and heart upon this world and how successful you are and how you enjoy yourself in it?

Are you interested in your eternity and your destiny in the other world, and how you prepare yourself for it, as the Lord says “Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning; and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when he will return from the wedding, that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately. Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching” (Luke 12:35-37).

The spiritual wakefulness is a deep test of faith.

Where is the faith of those who neglect their eternity, where is their faith? Where is their faith in the other life, and their preparation for it with repentance and good deeds, with love and companionship with God, and with oil in their lamps?
