His Sovereignty Our Freedom

Chirst ‘overcame the world’ [cf. John 16:33]. And now there is no one and nothing that could set limits to His Sovereignty. In much suffering we free ourselves from the power of our past. Enriched by the experience of victory through repentance, we become kin to the only-begotten Son in His Lordship. Hell no longer has dominion over us–our old dread has gone.

–Elder Sophrony, We Shall See Him as He Is, p 188
