Steps 16 and 17 of The Ladder of Divine Ascent Series

Steps 16 and 17 of The Ladder of Divine Ascent Series

June 30, 2014

We will be looking at these two steps together, Step 16 On Love of Money, or Avarice, greed… Step 17: On Non-Possessiveness (that hastens one heavenwards), because they represent opposite sides of the same coin. Step 16 describes the spiritual illness, while Step 17 prescribes the spiritual cure. The words of Jesus fittingly introduce their theme:

"Lay not up for yourselves treasures on earth . . . but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven . . . For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also" (Matthew 6:19-21)

LADDER OF DIVINE ASCENT STEP SIX

STEP 6 “REMEMBERING OUR MORTALITY”

 

This brief step considers a rather simple but essential practice of the desert fathers; to remember not only that one will die, but what death brings – judgment (Hebrews 9:27)  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment……  Such a thought spurs one on to repentance and conversion, prevents laziness, makes dishonor and indignity sweet, banishes worries and anxieties, and deters sin.  This alone is enough to make John call it the "most essential of all works."

Step Fifteen on Chastity “Keeping Ourselves Pure”

 

We have heard from that raving mistress gluttony, who has just spoken, that her offspring is war against bodily chastity.…

 

Colossians 3:5 - Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

Ephesians 5:3 - But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;

Romans 13:13 - Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.

1 Thessalonians 4:7 - For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.

Spiritual, Physical and Material Passions… Gluttony: “On that clamorous mistress, the stomach”

 

Scriptures on Gluttony

 

Philippians 3:19 - Whose end [is] destruction, whose God [is their] belly, and [whose] glory [is] in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

Proverbs 23:21 - For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe [a man] with rags.

Deuteronomy 21:20 - And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son [is] stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; [he is] a glutton, and a drunkard.

Psalms 78:18 - And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust.

Romans 13:14 - But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to [fulfil] the lusts [thereof].

Proverbs 23:20 - Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh:

Galatians 5:16- [This] I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh

1 Corinthians 10:31 - Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

Romans 12:1 - I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service.

Matthew 5:6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.

Step Thirteen On Despondency or Tedium of Spirit

 

“Escaping from Boredom”

 

Despondency or Sloth can entail different vices. While sloth is sometimes defined as physical laziness, spiritual laziness is emphasized. Failing to develop spiritually is key to becoming guilty of sloth. In the Christian faith, sloth rejects grace and God.
