The Battle of Faith

I found this great quote today. It’s a summary of St. John Chrysostom’s thoughts on 1 Tim 6:11-16 in the Ancient Christian Commentary, NT vol.IX, p.216. Here it is:

“The life of the believer is directed toward future rewards, not present pleasures. For such a person rejects the love of money, stands fast in the profession of faith, refuses to be intimidated by earthly powers and places all hope in God who is incomprehensible in his majesty.”
