الرّسالة

أفسس 2: 4 – 10


يا إِخوَةُ، إنَّ ٱللهَ لِكَونِهِ غَنِيًّا بِٱلرَّحمَةِ، مِن أَجلِ كَثرَةِ مَحَبَّتِهِ ٱلَّتي أَحَبَّنا بِها، وَحينَ كُنَّا أَمواتًا بِٱلزَّلَّاتِ أَحْيانا مَعَ ٱلمَسيحِ، فَإِنَّكُم بِٱلنِّعمَةِ مُخَلَّصونَ، وَأَقامَنا مَعَهُ وَأَجلَسَنا مَعَهُ في ٱلسَّماوِيَّاتِ في ٱلمَسيحِ يَسوعَ، لِيُظهِرَ في ٱلدُّهورِ ٱلمُستَقبَلَةِ فَرطَ غِنى نِعمَتِهِ، بِٱللُّطفِ بِنا في ٱلمَسيحِ يَسوع. فَإِنَّكُم بِٱلنِّعمَةِ مُخَلَّصونَ، بِواسِطَةِ ٱلإيمان. وَذَلِكَ لَيسَ مِنكُم، وَإِنَّما هُوَ عَطِيَّةُ ٱلله. وَلَيسَ مِنَ ٱلأَعمالِ لِئَلَّا يَفتَخِرَ أَحَدٌ، لِأَنَّا نَحنُ صُنعُهُ، مَخلوقينَ في ٱلمَسيحِ يَسوعَ لِلأَعمالِ ٱلصَّالِحَةِ، ٱلَّتي سَبَقَ ٱللهُ فَأَعَدَّها لِنَسلُكَ فيها


الإنجيل

لوقا 12: 16 – 21


قالَ ٱلرَّبُّ هَذا ٱلمَثَل: ’إِنسانٌ غَنِيٌّ أَخصَبَت ضَيعَتُهُ، فَجَعَلَ يُفَكِّرُ في نَفسِهِ قائِلًا: ’ماذا أَفعَلُ، فَإِنَّهُ لَيسَ لي مَوضِعٌ أَخزُنُ فيهِ غِلالي؟‘ ثُمَّ قال: ’أَفعَلُ هَذا: أَهدِمُ أَهرائي وَأَبني أَوسَعَ مِنها، وَأَخزُنُ هُناكَ جَميعَ غِلالي وَخَيراتي، وَأَقولُ لِنَفسي: يا نَفسِ، لَكِ خَيراتٌ كَثيرَةٌ مَوضوعَةٌ لِسِنينَ كَثيرَة. فَٱستَريحي وَكُلي وَٱشرَبي وَتَنَعَّمي!‘ فَقالَ لَهُ ٱلله: ’يا جاهِل! في هَذِهِ ٱللَّيلَةِ تُطلَبُ مِنكَ نَفسُكَ، فَهَذا ٱلَّذي أَعدَدْتَهُ لِمَن يَكون؟‘ هَكذا مَن يَدَّخِرُ لِنَفسِهِ وَلا يَغتَني لِأَجلِ ٱلله‘. وَلَمّا قالَ هَذا صاح: ’مَن لَهُ أُذُنانِ لِلسَّماعِ فَليَسمَع‘


Lettre

Ephésiens 2: 4 – 10


Mais Dieu est riche en miséricorde; à cause du grand amour dont Il nous a aimés, nous qui étions des morts par suite de nos fautes, Il nous a donné la vie avec le Christ: c’est bien par grâce que vous êtes sauvés. Avec Lui, Il nous a ressuscités et Il nous a fait siéger aux Cieux, dans le Christ Jésus. Il a voulu ainsi montrer, au long des âges futurs, la richesse surabondante de Sa grâce, par Sa bonté pour nous dans le Christ Jésus. C’est bien par la grâce que vous êtes sauvés, et par le moyen de la foi. Cela ne vient pas de vous, c’est le don de Dieu. Cela ne vient pas des actes: personne ne peut en tirer orgueil. C’est Dieu Qui nous a faits, Il nous a créés dans le Christ Jésus, en vue de la réalisation d’œuvres bonnes qu’Il a préparées d’avance pour que nous les pratiquions


Évangile

Luc 12: 16 – 21


Et Il leur dit cette parabole: ‘Il y avait un homme riche, dont le domaine avait bien rapporté. Il se demandait: ‘Que vais-je faire? Car je n’ai pas de place pour mettre ma récolte.’ Puis il se dit: ‘Voici ce que je vais faire: je vais démolir mes greniers, j’en construirai de plus grands et j’y mettrai tout mon blé et tous mes biens. Alors je me dirai à moi-même: Te voilà donc avec de nombreux biens à ta disposition, pour de nombreuses années. Repose-toi, mange, bois, jouis de l’existence.’ Mais Dieu lui dit: ‘Tu es fou: cette nuit même, on va te redemander ta vie. Et ce que tu auras accumulé, qui l’aura?’ Voilà ce qui arrive à celui qui amasse pour lui-même, au lieu d’être riche en vue de Dieu.’ Disant cela, Il éleva la voix: ‘Celui qui a des oreilles pour entendre, qu’il entende!’


Letter

Ephesians 2: 4 – 10


But God, Who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the Heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them


Gospel

Luke 12: 16 – 21


Then He spoke a parable to them, saying: ‘The ground of a certain rich man yielded plentifully. And he thought within himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, since I have no room to store my crops?’ So he said, ‘I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will store all my crops and my goods. And I will say to my soul, ‘Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry.’ But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?’ So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God. When He had said these things He cried, ‘He who has ears to hear, let him hear!’

ነገር ግን እግዚአብሔር በምሕረቱ ባለ ጠጋ ስለ ሆነ፥ ከወደደን ከትልቅ ፍቅሩ የተነሣ በበደላችን ሙታን እንኳ በሆንን ጊዜ ከክርስቶስ ጋር ሕይወት ሰጠን፥ በጸጋ ድናችኋልና፥ በሚመጡ ዘመናትም በክርስቶስ ኢየሱስ ለእኛ ባለው ቸርነት ከሁሉ የሚበልጠውን የጸጋውን ባለ ጠግነት ያሳይ ዘንድ፥ ከእርሱ ጋር አስነሣን በክርስቶስ ኢየሱስም በሰማያዊ ስፍራ ከእርሱ ጋር አስቀመጠን። ጸጋው በእምነት አድኖአችኋልና፤ ይህም የእግዚአብሔር ስጦታ ነው እንጂ ከእናንተ አይደለም፤ ማንም እንዳይመካ ከሥራ አይደለም። እኛ ፍጥረቱ ነንና፤ እንመላለስበት ዘንድ እግዚአብሔር አስቀድሞ ያዘጋጀውን መልካሙን ሥራ ለማድረግ በክርስቶስ ኢየሱስ ተፈጠርን።


ወንጌል

የሉቃስ ወንጌል 12: 16 – 21


ምሳሌም ነገራቸው እንዲህ ሲል። አንድ ባለ ጠጋ ሰው እርሻ እጅግ ፍሬያም ሆነችለት። እርሱም። ፍሬዬን የማከማችበት ስፍራ አጥቻለሁና ምን ላድርግ? ብሎ በልቡ አሰበ። እንዲህ አደርጋለሁ፤ ጐተራዬን አፍርሼ ሌላ የሚበልጥ እሠራለሁ፥ በዚያም ፍሬዬንና በረከቴን ሁሉ አከማቻለሁ፤ ነፍሴንም። አንቺ ነፍሴ፥ ለብዙ ዘመን የሚቀር ብዙ በረከት አለሽ፤ ዕረፊ፥ ብዪ፥ ጠጪ፥ ደስ ይበልሽ እላታለሁ አለ። እግዚአብሔር ግን። አንተ ሰነፍ፥ በዚች ሌሊት ነፍስህን ከአንተ ሊወስዱአት ይፈልጓታል፤ ይህስ የሰበሰብኸው ለማን ይሆናል? አለው። ለራሱ ገንዘብ የሚያከማች፥ በእግዚአብሔር ዘንድም ባለ ጠጋ ያልሆነ እንዲህ ነው። ይህን በተናገረ ጊዜ። የሚሰማ ጆሮ ያለው ይስማ ብሎ ጮኸ።
