(St. Nicholas, Bishop)
Jesus said to his disciples: “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the Kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven. “Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock.” Mt_7:21,24-27
… and on this rock, I will build my Church. Mt 16:18 This is the Rock of our Lord Jesus, upon which is set the house, the temples of our selves – or better yet, the “living stones” that make up our Church, that dwelling place of God. When we can stay rooted on His foundation and then function according to His Call, no wind, or rain, or “big, bad wolf” will ever have a chance against us.
