Growing
By Mark Bach

Having converted to Orthodoxy a few years ago, I am happy that my excitement with the Orthodox faith has not waned. Quite the opposite – my excitement in being Orthodox increases time and again as I learn and experience more. I desire to grow spiritually, intellectually and emotionally in the Orthodox faith.

The daily readings from the Orthodox Study Bible provide opportunities for introspection and greater understanding of what the Scriptures say and mean. The footnotes put the text into perspective and help to show how the text applies to current daily life. Matins reveals more about the saints and the Orthodox tradition. The Holy Liturgy gives exposure to the fullness of Christ and His Teachings, permitting actual living with Christ. Icons are everywhere. Icons represent two-way mirrors where we see the people and events portrayed and the saints portrayed see us! In every way, pursuing Orthodoxy makes me feel closer to God.

Every day as an Orthodox Christian, I know that God is with me, guiding me and protecting me. Living the life of an Orthodox Christian is a continuing ritual of growth and improvement. I have come a long way so far and I know that I have so much farther to go from here. The journey with Orthodoxy continues!
