مَنْ يُحِبُّنِي يَحْفَظُ كَلِمَتِي، وأَبِي يُحِبُّهُ وإِلَيْهِ نَأْتِي، وعِنْدَهُ نَجْعَلُ لَنَا مَنْزِلاً
إنجيل القدّيس يوحنّا14/من21حتى27/:”قالَ الرَبُّ يَسوعُ لِتلاميذِهِ: «مَنْ كَانَتْ لَدَيْهِ وَصَايَاي ويَحْفَظُهَا، هُوَ الَّذي يُحِبُّنِي. ومَنْ يُحِبُّنِي يُحِبُّهُ أَبِي، وأَنَا أُحِبُّهُ وأُظْهِرُ لَهُ ذَاتِي». قَالَ لَهُ يَهُوذَا، لا ذَاكَ الإِسْخَريُوطِيّ: «يَا رَبّ، مَاذَا جَرَى حَتَّى تُظْهِرَ ذَاتَك لَنَا، لا لِلعَالَم؟». أَجَابَ يَسُوعُ وقَالَ لَهُ: «مَنْ يُحِبُّنِي يَحْفَظُ كَلِمَتِي، وأَبِي يُحِبُّهُ وإِلَيْهِ نَأْتِي، وعِنْدَهُ نَجْعَلُ لَنَا مَنْزِلاً. مَنْ لا يُحِبُّنِي لا يَحْفَظُ كَلِمَتِي. والكَلِمَةُ الَّتِي تَسْمَعُونَهَا لَيْسَتْ كَلِمَتِي، بَلْ كَلِمَةُ الآبِ الَّذي أَرْسَلَنِي. كَلَّمْتُكُم بِهذَا، وأَنَا مُقِيمٌ عِنْدَكُم. لكِنَّ البَرَقْلِيط، الرُّوحَ القُدُس، الَّذي سَيُرْسِلُهُ الآبُ بِٱسْمِي، هُوَ يُعَلِّمُكُم كُلَّ شَيء، ويُذَكِّرُكُم بِكُلِّ مَا قُلْتُهُ لَكُم. أَلسَّلامَ أَسْتَودِعُكُم، سَلامِي أُعْطِيكُم. لا كَمَا يُعْطِيهِ العَالَمُ أَنَا أُعْطِيكُم. لا يَضْطَرِبْ قَلْبُكُم ولا يَخَفْ!”.

أَنَّنَا نَنْطِقُ بِالحِكْمَةِ بَيْنَ الكَامِلين، ولكِنْ لا بِحِكْمَةِ هذَا الدَّهْر، ولا بِحِكْمَةِ رُؤَسَاءِ هذَا الدَّهْرِ الَّذِينَ مَصِيرُهُم إِلى الزَّوَال. بَلْ نَنْطِقُ بِسِرِّ حِكْمَةِ اللهِ
رسالة القدّيس بولس الأولى إلى أهل قورنتس02/من01حتى10/:”يا إِخْوَتِي، أَنَا، لَمَّا أَتَيْتُكُم لأُبَشِّرَكُم بِسِرِّ ٱلله، لَمْ آتِ بِبَرَاعَةِ الكَلاَمِ أَوِ الحِكْمَة؛ لأَنِّي قَرَّرْتُ أَنْ لا أَعْرِفَ بَيْنَكُم شَيْئًا إِلاَّ يَسُوعَ المَسِيح، وَإِيَّاهُ مَصْلُوبًا! وقَدْ جِئْتُ إِلَيْكُم بِضُعْفٍ وَخَوْفٍ وَرِعْدَةٍ شَدِيدَة. ولَمْ يَكُنْ كَلامِي وَتَبْشِيري بِكَلِمَاتِ الْحِكْمَةِ والإِقْنَاع، بَلْ بِبُرْهَانِ الرُّوحِ وَالقُدْرَة، لِئَلاَّ يَكُونَ إِيْمَانُكُم قَائِمًا عَلى حِكْمَةِ النَّاس، بَلْ عَلى قُدْرَةِ الله. غَيْرَ أَنَّنَا نَنْطِقُ بِالحِكْمَةِ بَيْنَ الكَامِلين، ولكِنْ لا بِحِكْمَةِ هذَا الدَّهْر، ولا بِحِكْمَةِ رُؤَسَاءِ هذَا الدَّهْرِ الَّذِينَ مَصِيرُهُم إِلى الزَّوَال. بَلْ نَنْطِقُ بِسِرِّ حِكْمَةِ اللهِ المَحْجُوبَة، الَّتي سَبَقَ اللهُ فَحَدَّدَهَا قَبْلَ الدُّهُورِ لِمَجْدِنَا. وهيَ الحِكْمَةُ الَّتي لَمْ يَعْرِفْهَا أَحَدٌ مِنْ رُؤَسَاءِ هذَا الدَّهْر، لأَنَّهُم لَوْ عَرَفُوهَا لَمَا صَلَبُوا رَبَّ المَجْد. ولكِنْ، كَمَا هوَ مَكْتُوب: «مَا لَمْ تَرَهُ عَيْن، ولَمْ تَسْمَعْ بِهِ أُذُن، ولَمْ يَخْطُرْ عَلَى قَلْبِ بَشَر، قَدْ أَعَدَّهُ اللهُ لِلَّذِينَ يُحِبُّونَهُ». لكِنَّ اللهَ أَعْلَنَهُ لَنَا بِرُوحِهِ، لأَنَّ الرُّوحَ يَسْبُرُ كُلَّ شَيءٍ حَتَّى أَعْمَاقَ ٱلله.”

 

Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 14/21-27/:”They who have my commandments and keep them are those who love me; and those who love me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them.’Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, ‘Lord, how is it that you will reveal yourself to us, and not to the world?’Jesus answered him, ‘Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. Whoever does not love me does not keep my words; and the word that you hear is not mine, but is from the Father who sent me. ‘I have said these things to you while I am still with you. But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.”

 

Yet among the mature we do speak wisdom, though it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to perish. But we speak God’s wisdom
First Letter to the Corinthians 02/01-10/:”When I came to you, brothers and sisters, I did not come proclaiming the mystery of God to you in lofty words or wisdom. For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and him crucified. And I came to you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling. My speech and my proclamation were not with plausible words of wisdom, but with a demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith might rest not on human wisdom but on the power of God. Yet among the mature we do speak wisdom, though it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to perish. But we speak God’s wisdom, secret and hidden, which God decreed before the ages for our glory. None of the rulers of this age understood this; for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But, as it is written, ‘What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the human heart conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him’ these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God.
