Experiences of the Grace of God
Archimandrite Georgios - Mount Athos.
For man to struggle against his bad-self, against his egoism and against the desires of the world and the devil, he needs to taste the Grace of God, to be made sweet by the sweetness of the Holy Spirit. It is experience in Christ which supports Christians in their struggle to be pleasing to God.
It is possible, however, for our weakness and for the devil to lead us astray, so that false experiences rather than those of God become our guides along treacherous paths and into murky waters, if we do not take heed. Our participation, in the life of the Orthodox Church, the only true faith in Christ the Theanthrope (God-Man), our heart-felt acceptance and espousal of its Holy Tradition and its everyday practices are a surety for those of us who aspire to see the face of its Bridegroom, to have a hope of eternal life to taste from the present age the true experience of God.
