All Will Be Transformed

theotokos_donsk_437“Do you see what happens? With the Spirit of God we all become incapable of every sin. We are made incapable because Christ dwells within us. We are henceforth capable only of good. Thus we will acquire the grace of God and become possessed by God. If we abandon ourselves to the love of Christ, then all will be overturned, all will be transfigured, all will be transformed, all will be transubstantiated. Anger, resentment, jealousy, indignation, censure, ingratitude, melancholy and depression will all become love, joy, longing, divine eros. Paradise!”
– Elder Porphyrios, Wounded by Love

One response to “All Will Be Transformed

  1. But I think of St Paul’s warning — let anyone who stands take heed lest he fall.

    If we are filled with the Spirit of God we indeed become incapable of sin, until the moment we become conscious of being filled with the Spirit of God and being incapable of sin. In that moment of self-consciousness, we sin.
