Christ left us here to be lights…
There would be no unbelievers if we were the Christians we should be.
Everyone would convert to godliness if we generally kept the commandments of Christ,
suffered through insults, allowed others to take advantage of us,
blessed when we were cursed, and did good when treated poorly.
For example, Paul was only one man, yet how many followed him?
If we were like him, how many worlds could we have following us?
St. John Chrysostom
