Take five minutes to think about what Christ did for us….

Women at the tombA reflection from a parishioner…
As I watched a DVD that depicted the life of Christ with my daughter, we discussed how we can always read Scriptures, but sometimes, it has a greater impact when we actually see what happens. The series depicted Christ’s life and what we discussed was how Thomas, one of His disciples, always doubted everything. My thoughts immediately turned to Stewardship, and how we, as Orthodox faithful, doubt Stewardship as well. In the context of Holy Week, the Passion Gospels, Christ’s crucifixion, His death and Resurrection…. all that Christ was put through, for our personal Salvation, all that Christ experienced, for our personal Salvation, the pain and suffering, for our personal Salvation. It brings tears to my eyes to think all that Christ did for me, my family, my opportunities and yet, I easily pay for my monthly bills without a second thought but will question when providing my Church, with Time, Talents and Treasures.

Christ Is Risen!
