It is far better to agree with the Holy Lord, than to be able to raise the dead. It is far better to die of starvation, if that is His will for you, than to be able to make a banquet appear from nowhere.
It is far better to live in isolation and abandoned by every man, then to distort the Gospel and make it say things for the sake of their itchy ears. It is better to be crucified for the Holy Name of Jesus the Christ of God, than to be loved by every man, woman and child who ever lived.
The Living God will support the one who agrees with his Holy Son. But the one who desires appreciation from man, will find himself starkly alone. It is immeasurably better to agree with the Living God, than to have the smallest of desire granted.
“If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.” Miracles do not provide the willing soul that God desires. Instead, God is looking for those who will love him regardless what comes. Isn’t that why he loves his Holy Son so dearly?
