هكذَا يَكُونُ فَرَحٌ في السَّمَاءِ بِخَاطِئٍ وَاحِدٍ يَتُوب، أَكْثَرَ مِنْ تِسْعَةٍ وَتِسْعِينَ بَارًّا، لا يَحْتَاجُونَ إِلى تَوْبَة
إنجيل القدّيس لوقا15/من01حتى07/”كَانَ جَمِيعُ العَشَّارِينَ وَالْخَطَأَةِ يَقْتَرِبُونَ مِنْ يَسُوعَ لِيَسْمَعُوه. وكَانَ الفَرِّيسيُّونَ وَالكَتَبَةُ يَتَذَمَّرُونَ قَائِلين: «هذا الرَّجُلُ يَسْتَقْبِلُ الخَطَأَةَ وَيَأْكُلُ مَعَهُم!».فَقَالَ لَهُم هذَا المَثَل:«أَيُّ رَجُلٍ مِنْكُم، لَهُ مِئَةُ خَرُوف، فَأَضَاعَ وَاحِدًا مِنْهَا، لا يَتْرُكُ التِّسْعَةَ وَالتِّسْعِينَ في البَرِّيَّةِ وَيَذْهَبُ وَرَاءَ الضَّائِعِ حَتَّى يَجِدَهُ؟ فَإِذَا وَجَدَهُ حَمَلَهُ عَلَى كَتِفَيْهِ فَرِحًا.وَيَعُودُ إِلى البَيْتِ فَيَدْعُو الأَصْدِقَاءَ وَالجِيرَان، وَيَقُولُ لَهُم: إِفْرَحُوا مَعِي، لأَنِّي وَجَدْتُ خَرُوفِيَ الضَّائِع!أَقُولُ لَكُم: هكذَا يَكُونُ فَرَحٌ في السَّمَاءِ بِخَاطِئٍ وَاحِدٍ يَتُوب، أَكْثَرَ مِنْ تِسْعَةٍ وَتِسْعِينَ بَارًّا، لا يَحْتَاجُونَ إِلى تَوْبَة!”.

There will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who need no repentance
Luke/01/01-07: “All the tax-collectors and sinners were coming near to listen to him.And the Pharisees and the scribes were grumbling and saying, ‘This fellow welcomes sinners and eats with them.’So he told them this parable: ‘Which one of you, having a hundred sheep and losing one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one that is lost until he finds it? When he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders and rejoices. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbours, saying to them, “Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.” Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who need no repentance.”

مَنْ يَحْفَظُ وَصَايَا اللهِ يَثْبُتُ في الله، واللهُ يَثْبُتُ فِيه
رسالة القدّيس يوحنّا الأولى24/من04حتى06/03/”يا إِخوَتِي: هذِهِ هِيَ وَصِيَّتُهُ أَنْ نُؤْمِنَ بِٱسْمِ ٱبْنِهِ يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيح، ونُحِبَّ بَعْضُنَا بَعْضًا، كَمَا أَوصَانَا. فَإِنَّ مَنْ يَحْفَظُ وَصَايَا اللهِ يَثْبُتُ في الله، واللهُ يَثْبُتُ فِيه. وبِهذَا نَعْرِفُ أَنَّهُ يَثْبُتُ فِينَا، مِنَ الرُّوحِ الَّذي وَهَبَهُ لنَا. أَيُّهَا الأَحِبَّاء، لا تُصَدِّقُوا كُلَّ رُوح، بَلِ ٱمْتَحِنُوا الأَرْوَاحَ هَلْ هِيَ مِنَ الله، لأَنَّ أَنْبِياءَ كَذَّابِينَ كَثِيرِينَ ٱنْتَشَرُوا في العَالَم. بِهذَا تَعْرِفُونَ رُوحَ الله، أَنَّ كُلَّ رُوحٍ يَعْتَرِفُ بِأَنَّ يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحَ قَدَ أَتى بِالْجَسَد، يَكُونُ مِنَ الله. وكُلُّ روحٍ لا يَعْتَرِفُ بيَسُوعَ لا يَكُونُ مِنَ الله. وهذَا هُوَ رُوحُ المَسِيحِ الدَّجَّال، أَلَّذي سَمِعْتُم أَنَّهُ يَأْتي، وهُوَ الآنَ في العَالَم. أَنْتُم مِنَ الله، يا أَوْلادِي، وقَد غَلَبْتُمُ الأَنْبِياءَ الكَذَّابِين، لأَنَّ الرُّوحَ الَّذي فِيكُم هُوَ أَعْظَمُ مِنَ الَّذي في العَالَم. هُم مِنَ العَالَم، لِذلِكَ يتَكَلَّمُونَ كَلامَ العَالَم، والعَالَمُ يَسْمَعُ لَهُم. أَمَّا نَحْنُ فإِنَّنَا مِنَ الله. ومَنْ يَعْرِفُ ٱللهَ يَسْمَعُ لنَا، ومَنْ لا يَكُونُ مِنَ اللهِ لا يَسْمَعُ لَنَا. بِهذَا نَعْرِفُ الحَقَّ ورُوحَ الضَّلال”.

All who obey his commandments abide in him, and he abides in them.
First Letter of John 03/23-24/04,01-06: “This is his commandment, that we should believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us. All who obey his commandments abide in him, and he abides in them. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit that he has given us.Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God; for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. And this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming; and now it is already in the world. Little children, you are from God, and have conquered them; for the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore what they say is from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us, and whoever is not from God does not listen to us. From this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.”
