“He who loves Christ by all means imitates Him in proportion to his strength. Now, Christ did not cease doing good to people even when they showed no gratitude; and when they offended Him, He was long-suffering. He endured being beaten and killed as well, thinking no evil to anyone. These three are the deeds of love toward our fellowmen, without which the one who says he loves Christ or hopes to inherit His Kingdom is in deception. For the Lord said, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord’, shall enter the Kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven” (Matt. 7:21); and again, ‘If you love Me, keep My commandments’ (Jn. 14:15); and the rest.” (Saint Maximus the Confessor)
