You Can Live Forever

Abba Ephiphanios on being created to live forever.
I am in my forties, and for the first time in my life I’m starting to, as the saying goes, “feel my age.” It’s therefore amazing to remember that, as Abba Epiphanios teaches, we can live forever:
We were created for eternal life by our Creator, we are called to it by the word of God, and we are renewed by holy Baptism. And Christ the Son of God came into the world for this, that He should call us and take us there, and He is the one thing needful. For this reason your very first endeavor and care should be to receive it.
"I learn so much from AFR and consider it a vital supplement to my church teaching and experience. I never would have been exposed to the Orthodox Church as I have been. I am not Orthodox, so I am especially grateful for the ability to learn about the Orthodox Church in this way."
