Nikolai Velimirovich: “It is not easy to comprehend why God created worlds”

“It is not easy to comprehend why God created worlds, first the bodiless angelic one and then the bodily one with man as its crown. If the Triune God is perfect and self-sufficient in the fullness of life, love and glory, why did He create worlds lesser than Himself? The Church and only the Church provides the answer. From an over abundance of love within Himself, God created the worlds visible and invisible through the Only Begotten to please Him. Was It for the Son’s entertainment or out of some necessity? This is not what we said. God does not need entertainment. His Triune love overcomes all merriment of entertainment and all enjoyment of amusements.”
– St. Nikolai Velimirovich
