by St. Nikolai Velimirovich
“Only Christians can know what the meaning of life is. Period.
And the purpose is – the kingdom of heaven. The first words of Christ or the proclamation of this purpose, quote repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” His last words were, quote go into the whole world and preach the gospel to every creature”.
Are his stories not all about the kingdom of heaven? Is his ascension into the world and his revelation from it not only a testimony of the kingdom of heaven?
One could freely say that the entire gospel of Christ from the beginning to the end speaks and testifies of the kingdom of heaven as the purpose of human life.”
