20. If 'Christ died on our account in accordance with the Scriptures' (Rm 5:8; 1Co 15:3), and we do not 'live for ourselves', but 'for Him who died and rose' on our account (2Co 5:15), it is clear that we are debtors to Christ to serve Him till our death. How then can we regard sonship as something which is our due? REF:Saint Kosmas Aitolos +1779



26. While man can scarcely keep what belongs to him by nature, Christ gives the grace of sonship through the Cross. REF:Saint Kosmas Aitolos +1779
