Exert from “A Spiritual Psalter”

As I graduated, my physics/ calc teacher gave some of us this book. It is filled with prayers and reflections from Ephraim the Syrian. I don’t know much background about him, but here is a small glimpse into the book.

Lift your eyes to heaven when it, like a clean mirror, gloriously illumines the earth with its stars, and say in awe: if the stars shine with such glory, then how much more so will the righteous and the saints who have done the holy will of God shine with the inexpressible light of saving glory when the Lord comes.

This reminds us of the future glory that will be given to us from Christ and will be of him. He loves us so much that he lets us take part in his glory, a glory that creation is already trying to cry out. How immense our God is that creation is longing to glorify him and be freed of its current state. Amen.
