So true. Like we are to pray for God to change our hearts not His.

And while they were gazing into heaven as he went, behold, two men stood by them in white robes, and said,"Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven." - Acts of the Apostles 1:11

"To love your neighbour as yourself, to sympathise with him in his joy and sorrow, to feed, clothe him, if he is in need of food and clothing; to breathe, so to say, the same air with him--look upon all this as the same thing as feeding and warming yourself, and do not count these as virtues or as works of love to your neighbour, lest you grow proud of them. "For we are members one of another." Ephesians 4:25

- Saint John of Kronstadt

‎"The perfect person does not only try to avoid evil. Nor does he do good for fear of punishment, still less in order to qualify for the hope of a promised reward. The perfect person does good through love. The rule of life for a perfect person is to be in the image and likeness of God." - St. Clement of Alexandria

The One Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church
Introduction
The Orthodox Church was founded by our Lord Jesus Christ and is the living manifestation of His presence in the history of mankind. 

It is the second largest Christian denomination in the world, with an estimated 300 million adherents mainly in the countries of BelarusBulgariaCyprusGeorgiaGreeceMacedoniaMoldovaMontenegro,RomaniaRussiaSerbia, and Ukraine, all of which are majority Eastern Orthodox. It considers itself to be the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church established by Jesus Christ and his Apostles almost 2,000 years ago.

The goal of Orthodox Christians from baptism is to continually draw themselves nearer to God throughout their lives. This process is called theosis, or deification, and is a spiritual pilgrimage in which each person strives to both become more holy and more "Christ Like" within Jesus Christ.
