Bible (KJV) NT 23: 1 John

By: King James Version

The First Epistle of John, often referred to as First John and written 1 John, is a book of the New Testament. This fourth catholic or general epistle is attributed to John the Evangelist, traditionally thought to be the author of the Gospel of John and the other two Epistles of John. This Epistle was written in Ephesus between the years 95–110. The work was written to counter docetism, the heresy that Jesus did not come in the flesh, but only as a spirit. It also defined how Christians are to discern true teachers: by their ethics, their proclamation of Jesus in the flesh, and by their love....

Жития Святых, т. 10 - Иуний (Zhitiia Sviatykh, v. 10 - June)

By: Saint Metropolitan of Rostov Dimitriĭ ; Святитель Димитрій Ростовскій

Житія и похвалы святыхъ подобятся свѣтлостію звѣздамъ: якоже бо звѣзды положеніемъ на небеси утвержденны суть, всю же поднебесную просвѣщаютъ, тыяжде и отъ Індіанъ зрятся, ни сокрываются отъ скѵѳовъ, землю озаряютъ, и морю свѣтятъ, и плавающихъ корабли управляютъ: ихже именъ аще и не вѣмы множества ради, обаче свѣтлѣй добротѣ ихъ чудимся. Сице и свѣтлость святыхъ, аще и затворены суть мощи ихъ во гробѣхъ, но силы ихъ въ поднебеснѣй земными предѣлы не суть опредѣленны: чудимся тѣхъ житію, и удивляемся славѣ, еюже Богъ угодившыя Ему прославляетъ.

Bible (ASV) NT 04: John

By: American Standard Version

The Gospel of John, (literally, According to John; Greek, Κατά Ιωαννην, Kata Iōannēn) is the fourth gospel in the canon of the New Testament, traditionally ascribed to John the Evangelist. Like the three synoptic gospels, it contains an account of some of the actions and sayings of Jesus, but differs from them in ethos and theological emphases. The purpose is expressed in the conclusion, 20:30-31: ...these [Miracles of Jesus] are written that you may (come to) believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that through this belief you may have life in his name. The book hinges on the seven signs Jesus performed and ends with the Passion of the Lord. (Summary from Wikipedia adapted by Sam Stinson)....

Lord's Table, The

By: Andrew Murray

Murray suggests that his devotional, The Lord's Table, is not meant to replace scripture, but rather to strengthen believers' appreciation of God's word. Murray's meditations provide a thoughtful guide for believers who desire to develop a deeper understanding of the Lord's Holy Supper. The devotional covers the week before, during, and after the Supper, and each entry is labeled with the day of the week so that readers can manage devotions with ease. Murray first explains how believers can prepare to receive God's blessing during the weeks before the Supper. Murray further encourages believers to be filled with God's love, repent of sinful deeds, and meditate on his grace. During the day of Holy Communion, we are called to pour out our hearts to Christ as he strengthens us through his body and blood, which quenches our thirst and feeds our souls. In the days after communion, Murray tenderly urges us to dwell on the redeeming power of sanctification. Murray's text is an excellent resource for those who desire to grow in their faith through Communion. (Summary by Emmalon Davis)...

Imitation of Christ, The

By: Thomas a Kempis

The Imitation of Christ is widely considered one of the greatest manuals of devotion in Christianity. The life of Christ is presented as the highest study possible to a mortal, as Jesus’ teachings far excel all the teachings of the saints. The book gives counsel to read the scriptures, statements about the uses of adversity, advice for submission to authority, warnings against temptation and how to resist it, reflections about death and the judgment, meditations upon the oblation of Christ, and admonitions to flee the vanities of the world.

Groundwork of the Christian Virtues, The

By: William Bernard Ullathorne

William Bernard Ullathorne was a Benedictine monk and Roman Catholic priest who ministered in Australia from 1833 until 1840 and then returned to his native England, where he was ordained a bishop in 1847 and served as Bishop of Birmingham from 1850 until 1888. He is best known for his catechetical trilogy: The Endowments of Man, The Groundwork of the Christian Virtues, and Christian Patience, published in the 1880s. The Groundwork of the Christian Virtues is presented in sixteen lectures, wherein Bishop Ullathorne makes the case that the virtue of humility is the foundation of all virtues, especially of the three theological virtues and the four cardinal moral virtues. The theological virtues of faith, hope, and charity have God Himself as their object, and the four cardinal virtues of prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance show one how to cultivate the theological virtues in one's daily life.

What I Believe

By: Leo Tolstoy

The inner working of my soul, which I wish to speak of here, was not the result of a methodical investigation of doctrinal theology, or of the actual texts of the gospel; it was a sudden removal of all that hid the true meaning of the Christian doctrine – a momentary flash of light, which made everything clear to me. It was something like that which might happen to a man who, after vainly attempting, by a false plan, to build up a statue out of a confused heap of small pieces of marble, suddenly guesses at the figure they are intended to form by the shape of the largest piece; and then, on beginning to set up the statue, finds his guess confirmed by the harmonious joining in of the various pieces.

Bible (STE) NT 20: Ιακώβου (James)

By: Stephanos 1550

Aπευθύνεται στις δώδεκα διασκορπισμένες φυλές του Ισραήλ και σε όλους όσους πιστεύουν στο όνομα του Κυρίου μας Ιησού Χριστού. Είναι μια σειρά προτροπών και ενθαρρύνσεων , που σχετίζεται άμεσα με την επί όρους ομιλία. Επικεντρώνεται στο να αναζωπυρώσει την γνήσια ζωντανή πίστη και στην εξάσκηση της μετάνοιας , της εμπιστοσύνης, της ταπείνωσης και της αυτοκυριαρχίας. Ο Άγιος Ιάκωβος είχε εκλεγεί από τους αποστόλους ως ο πρώτος αρχιεπίσκοπος της Ιερουσαλήμ. Ζούσε μια ζωή άγια, αυστηρή και ασκητική. Σύμφωνα με την παράδοση , ακριβώς πριν την πολιορκία της Ιερουσαλήμ , αφού άπιστοι Ιουδαίοι τον γκρέμισαν από τον ναό, τον λιθοβόλησαν μέχρι που τον σκότωσαν. It is addressed to the twelve tribes of Jerusalem which are scattered abroad and to every one that believes in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. A series of admonitions and exhortations , it has many direct parallels with the Sermon on the Mount. He concentrates on rekindling true living faith and on the practice of repentance , trust, humility, patience, and self control. James was elected as the first bishop of Jerusalem by the apostles He led a holy strict and ascetic life. Accordi...
