St. John Chrysostom: To love Christ means not to be a hireling . . .

Icon of St. John Chrysostom“To love Christ means not to be a hireling, not to look upon a noble life as an enterprise or trade, but to be a true benefactor and to do everything only for the sake of love for God.”

— St. John Chrysostom, Commentary on the Acts of the Apostles, Homily XI
