How Not to Forget Christ among Everyday Cares

How Not to Forget Christ among Everyday Cares

The end of Lent is not an appeal to spiritual lassitude.  I think there is only one way to never forget Christ, and that is what the Old Testament calls “walking before God,” when a person dedicates his whole life to God.  It is as if we say, “Let us commit all our life unto Christ, our God.”

To have just one sovereign goal before our eyes no matter what we are doing, no matter what we are thinking, no matter who we are talking to – to perceive everything we do as serving Christ. This applies not only to clergy, but to every Christian.

How can we view for example making eggs for breakfast as serving Christ?

I think that cooking eggs may be associated with simply worldly concerns, yet, it may also become a person’s sacrifice to God.  Everything depends on the person’s inner disposition and inner state of mind.  It may also depend, for example, on whether or not the person prays before beginning to cook the eggs, whether he is praying while they’re cooking and whether he’s praying after he’s finished.  If prayer coexists with a person’s life, then no matter what he does, even the simplest, most day-to-day tasks are dedicated to God.
