الرّسالة

أفسس 2: 4 – 10


يا إِخوَةُ، إِنَّ اللهَ لِكَونِهِ غَنِيًّا بِالرَّحمَةِ، وَمِن أَجلِ كَثرَةِ مَحَبَّتِهِ الَّتي أَحَبَّنا بِها حينَ كُنَّا أَمواتًا بِالزَّلَّاتِ أَحْيانا مَعَ المَسيح، فَإِنَّكُم بِالنِّعمَةِ مُخَلَّصونَ، وَأَقامَنا مَعَهُ وَأَجلَسَنا مَعَهُ في السَّماوِيَّاتِ في المَسيحِ يَسوعَ، لِيُظهِرَ في الدُّهورِ المُستَقبَلَةِ فَرطَ غِنى نِعمَتِهِ، بِاللُّطفِ بِنا في المَسيحِ يَسوع. فَإِنَّكُم بِالنِّعمَةِ مُخَلَّصونَ بِواسِطَةِ الإيمان، وَذَلِكَ لَيسَ مِنكُم، إِنَّما هُوَ عَطِيَّةُ الله. وَلَيسَ مِنَ الأَعمالِ لِئَلَّا يَفتَخِرَ أَحَدٌ، لِأَنَّا نَحنُ صُنعُهُ، مَخلوقينَ في المَسيحِ يَسوعَ لِلأَعمالِ الصَّالِحَةِ الَّتي سَبَقَ اللهُ فَأَعَدَّها لِنَسلُكَ فيها


الإنجيل

لوقا 18: 18 – 27


في ذلِكَ الزَّمان، دَنا إِلى يَسوعَ إِنسانٌ مُجَرِّبًا لَهُ وَقائِلًا: ’أَيُّها المُعَلِّمُ الصَّالِح، ماذا أَعمَلُ لِأَرِثَ الحَياةَ الأَبَدِيَّة؟‘ فَقالَ لَهُ يَسوع: ’لِماذا تَدعوني صالِحًا، وَما صالِحٌ إِلَّا واحِدٌ وَهوَ الله. إِنَّكَ تَعرِفُ الوَصايا: لا تَزنِ، لا تَقتُلْ، لا تَسرقْ، لا تَشهَد بِالزُّور، أَكرمْ أَباكَ وَأُمَّك‘. فَقالَ: ’كُلُّ هذا حَفِظتُهُ مُنذُ صِبائي‘. فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ يَسوعُ ذَلِكَ قالَ لَهُ: ’واحِدَةٌ تُعوِزُكَ بَعد: بِعْ كُلَّ شَيءٍ لَكَ، وَوَزِّعهُ عَلى المَساكين، فَيَكونَ لَكَ كَنزٌ في السَّماءِ، وَتَعالَ اتبَعني‘. فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ ذلِكَ حَزِنَ، لِأَنَّهُ كانَ غَنيًّا جِدًّا. فَلَمَّا رَآهُ يَسوعُ قَد حَزِنَ قال: ’ما أَعسَرَ عَلى ذَوي الأَموالِ أَن يَدخُلوا مَلَكوتَ الله! إِنَّهُ لَأَسهَلُ أَن يَدخُلَ الجَمَلُ في ثَقبِ الإِبرَةِ مِن أَن يَدخُلَ غَنِيٌّ مَلَكوتَ الله!‘ فَقالَ السَّامِعون: ’فَمَن يَستَطيعُ إِذًا أَن يَخلُص؟‘ فَقال: ’ما لا يُستَطاعُ عِندَ النَّاسِ مُستَطاعٌ عِندَ الله‘


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 18: 18 – 27 


Un notable Lui demanda: ‘Bon Maître, que dois-je faire pour avoir la Vie Éternelle en héritage?’ Jésus lui dit: ‘Pourquoi dire que Je suis bon? Personne n’est bon, sinon Dieu seul. Tu connais les commandements: Ne commets pas d’adultère, ne commets pas de meurtre, ne commets pas de vol, ne porte pas de faux témoignage, honore ton père et ta mère.’ L’homme répondit: ‘Tout cela, je l’ai observé depuis ma jeunesse.’ À ces mots Jésus lui dit: ‘Une seule chose te fait encore défaut: vends tout ce que tu as, distribue-le aux pauvres et tu auras un trésor dans les Cieux. Puis viens, suis-Moi.’ Mais entendant ces paroles, l’homme devint profondément triste, car il était très riche. Le voyant devenu si triste, Jésus dit: ‘Comme il est difficile à ceux qui possèdent des richesses de pénétrer dans le Royaume de Dieu! Car il est plus facile à un chameau de passer par un trou d’aiguille qu’à un riche d’entrer dans le Royaume de Dieu.’ Ceux qui L’entendaient Lui demandèrent: ‘Mais alors, qui peut être sauvé?’ Jésus répondit: ‘Ce qui est impossible pour les hommes est possible pour Dieu’


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 18: 18 – 27


Now a certain ruler asked Him, saying, ‘Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit Eternal Life?’ So Jesus said to him, ‘Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. You know the commandments: Do not commit adultery, do not murder, do not steal, do not bear false witness, honor your father and your mother.’ And he said, ‘All these things I have kept from my youth.’ So when Jesus heard these things, He said to him, ‘You still lack one thing. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have treasure in Heaven; and come, follow Me.’ But when he heard this, he became very sorrowful, for he was very rich. And when Jesus saw that he became very sorrowful, He said, ‘How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the Kingdom of God! For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God.’ And those who heard it said, ‘Who then can be saved?’ But He said, ‘The things which are impossible with men are possible with God’

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 18: 18 – 27


ከአለቆችም አንዱ። ቸር መምህር፥ የዘላለምን ሕይወት እንድወርስ ምን ላድርግ? ብሎ ጠየቀው። ኢየሱስም። ስለ ምን ቸር ትለኛለህ? ከአንዱ ከእግዚአብሔር በቀር ቸር ማንም የለም። ትእዛዛቱን ታውቃለህ፥ አታመንዝር፥ አትግደል፥ አትስረቅ፥ በሐሰት አትመስክር፥ አባትህንና እናትህን አክብር አለው። እርሱም። ይህን ሁሉ ከሕፃንናቴ ጀምሬ ጠብቄአለሁ አለ። ኢየሱስም ይህን ሰምቶ። አንዲት ገና ቀርታሃለች፤ ያለህን ሁሉ ሽጠህ ለድሆች ስጥ፥ በሰማይም መዝገብ ታገኛለህ፥ መጥተህም ተከተለኝ አለው። እርሱ ግን ይህን ሰምቶ እጅግ ባለ ጠጋ ነበርና ብዙ አዘነ። ኢየሱስም ብዙ እንዳዘነ አይቶ። ገንዘብ ላላቸው ወደ እግዚአብሔር መንግሥት መግባት እንዴት ጭንቅ ይሆናል። ባለ ጠጋ ወደ እግዚአብሔር መንግሥት ከሚገባ ይልቅ ግመል በመርፌ ቀዳዳ ሊገባ ይቀላል አለ። የሰሙትም። እንግዲህ ማን ሊድን ይችላል? አሉ። እርሱ ግን። በሰው ዘንድ የማይቻል በእግዚአብሔር ዘንድ ይቻላል አለ።
