أَيُّهَا الإِخْوَة، أَحِبَّاءُ الله، أَنَّ اللهَ ٱخْتَارَكُم؛ لأَنَّ إِنْجِيلَنَا لَمْ يَصِرْ إِلَيْكُم بِالكَلامِ وحَسْب، بَلْ أَيضًا بِالقُوَّةِ وبِالرُّوحِ القُدُسِ وَبِمِلْءِ اليَقِين/God, has chosen you, because our message of the gospel came to you not in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction

God, has chosen you, because our message of the gospel came to you not in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction
First Letter to the Thessalonians 01/01-10:”Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace.We always give thanks to God for all of you and mention you in our prayers, constantly remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labour of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. For we know, brothers and sisters beloved by God, that he has chosen you, because our message of the gospel came to you not in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction; just as you know what kind of people we proved to be among you for your sake. And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, for in spite of persecution you received the word with joy inspired by the Holy Spirit, so that you became an example to all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia. For the word of the Lord has sounded forth from you not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but in every place where your faith in God has become known, so that we have no need to speak about it. For the people of those regions report about us what kind of welcome we had among you, and how you turned to God from idols, to serve a living and true God, and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead Jesus, who rescues us from the wrath that is coming.

أَيُّهَا الإِخْوَة، أَحِبَّاءُ الله، أَنَّ اللهَ ٱخْتَارَكُم؛ لأَنَّ إِنْجِيلَنَا لَمْ يَصِرْ إِلَيْكُم بِالكَلامِ وحَسْب، بَلْ أَيضًا بِالقُوَّةِ وبِالرُّوحِ القُدُسِ وَبِمِلْءِ اليَقِين
رسالة القدّيس بولس الأولى إلى أهل تسالونيقي01/من01حتى10/:”يا إِخوَتِي : مِنْ بُولُسَ وسِلْوانُسَ وطِيمُوتَاوُسَ إِلى كنِيسَةِ التَّسَالُونِيكيِّينَ الَّتِي في اللهِ الآبِ والرَّبِّ يَسُوعَ المَسيح: أَلنِّعْمَةُ لَكُم والسَّلام! نَشْكُرُ اللهَ دائِمًا مِنْ أَجْلِكُم جَمِيعًا، ونَذْكُرُكُم في صَلَواتِنَا بِغَيْرِ ٱنْقِطاع. ونتَذَكَّرُ في حَضْرةِ إِلهِنَا وأَبِينَا عَمَلَ إِيْمَانِكُم، وتَعَبَ مَحَبَّتِكُم، وثَبَاتَ رَجَائِكُم، كَمَا في رَبِّنَا يَسُوعَ المَسِيح. ونَعْلَم، أَيُّهَا الإِخْوَة، أَحِبَّاءُ الله، أَنَّ اللهَ ٱخْتَارَكُم؛ لأَنَّ إِنْجِيلَنَا لَمْ يَصِرْ إِلَيْكُم بِالكَلامِ وحَسْب، بَلْ أَيضًا بِالقُوَّةِ وبِالرُّوحِ القُدُسِ وَبِمِلْءِ اليَقِين، وأَنتُم تَعْلَمُونَ كَيْفَ كُنَّا بَيْنَكُم مِن أَجْلِكُم. فَقَدْ صِرْتُم تَقْتَدُونَ بِنَا وبِالرَّبّ، إِذ قَبِلْتُمُ الكَلِمَة، في وَسَطِ ضِيقَاتٍ كَثِيرة، بِفَرَحِ الرُّوحِ القُدُس، حَتَّى صِرْتُم مِثَالاً لِجَمِيعِ المُؤْمِنينَ في مَقْدُونِيَةَ وأَخَائِيَة؛ لأَنَّهَا مِنْكُم ذَاعَتْ كَلِمَةُ الرَّبّ، لا في مَقْدُونِيَةَ وأَخَائِيَةَ وحَسْب، بَلْ في كُلِّ مَكَانٍ ٱنتَشَر إِيْمَانُكُم بِالله، حتَّى لَمْ يَعُدْ بِنَا حَاجَةٌ إِلى أَنْ نَقُولَ في ذلِكَ شَيْئًا. فَهُم أَنْفُسُهُم يُخْبِرُونَ عَنَّا كَيْفَ كَانَ دُخُولُنَا إِلَيْكُم، وكَيْفَ رَجَعْتُم عَنِ الأَوْثَانِ إِلى الله، لِكَي تَعْبُدُوا اللهَ الحَيَّ الحَقّ، وتَنْتَظِرُوا مِنَ السَّمَاواتِ ٱبْنَهُ، الَّذي أَقَامَهُ مِنْ بَينِ الأَمْوَات، يَسُوع، مُنَجِّينَا مِنَ الغَضَبِ الآتي.

فقَالَ يَسُوعُ لِسِمْعَان: «لا تَخَفْ! مِنَ الآنَ تَكُونُ صَيَّادًا لِلنَّاس
“إنجيل القدّيس لوقا05/من01حتى11/:”فيمَا كانَ الجَمْعُ مُزْدَحِمًا على يَسُوعَ يُصْغِي إِلى كَلِمَةِ الله، وكَانَ يَسُوعُ واقِفًا على شَاطِئِ بُحَيْرَةِ جِنَّاشَر، رأَى سَفِينَتَيْنِ راسِيَتَيْنِ عِنْدَ الشَّاطِئ، وقَدْ نَزَلَ مِنْهُمَا الصَّيَّادُونَ يَغْسِلُونَ الشِّبَاك. فَصَعِدَ إِلى إِحْدَى السَّفينَتَيْن، وكَانَتْ لِسِمْعَان، وسَأَلَهُ أَنْ يَبتَعِدَ قَليلاً عَنِ البَرّ، ثُمَّ جَلَسَ يُعَلِّمُ الجُمُوعَ مِنَ السَّفِينَة. ولَمَّا فَرَغَ مِنَ الكَلام، قالَ لِسِمْعَان: «إِبْتَعِدْ إِلى العُمْق، وأَلْقُوا شِباكَكُم لِلصَّيْد».فأَجَابَ سِمْعَانُ وقَالَ لَهُ: «يا مُعَلِّم، قَدْ تَعِبْنَا اللَّيْلَ كُلَّهَ ولَمْ نُصِبْ شَيْئًا! وَلكِنْ لأَجْلِ كَلِمَتِكَ أُلْقِي الشِّبَاك». ولَمَّا فَعَلُوا ذلِكَ ضَبَطُوا سَمَكًا كَثيرًا جِدًّا، وأَخَذَتْ شِبَاكُهُم تَتَمَزَّق. فأَشَارُوا إِلى شُرَكائِهِم في السَّفِينَةِ الأُخْرَى، لِيَأْتُوا وَيُسَاعِدُوهُم. فَأَتَوا وَمَلأُوا السَّفينَتَيْنِ حَتَّى أَخَذَتَا تَغْرَقَان. وَرأَى ذلِكَ سِمْعَانُ بُطْرُسُ فٱرْتَمَى عِنْدَ رُكْبَتَي يَسُوعَ قائِلاً: «تبَاعَدْ عَنِّي، يا رَبّ، فَإنِّي رَجُلٌ خَاطِئ!»؛ لأَنَّ الذُّهُولَ كانَ ٱعْتَرَاهُ هُوَ وجَمِيعَ مَنْ مَعَهُ، لِمَا أَصَابُوهُ مِنْ صَيْدِ السَّمَك. وهكذَا كانَ لِيَعْقُوبَ ويُوحَنَّا ٱبنَي زَبَدَى، اللَّذَينِ كانَا شَريكَيْنِ لِسِمْعَان. فقَالَ يَسُوعُ لِسِمْعَان: «لا تَخَفْ! مِنَ الآنَ تَكُونُ صَيَّادًا لِلنَّاس». ولَمَّا عَادُوا بِالسَّفينَةِ إِلى البَرّ، تَرَكُوا كُلَّ شَيء، وتَبِعُوا يَسُوع.”

Jesus said to Simon, ‘Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching people.
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 05/01-11:”Once while Jesus was standing beside the lake of Gennesaret, and the crowd was pressing in on him to hear the word of God,he saw two boats there at the shore of the lake; the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets. He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little way from the shore. Then he sat down and taught the crowds from the boat. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, ‘Put out into the deep water and let down your nets for a catch.’Simon answered, ‘Master, we have worked all night long but have caught nothing. Yet if you say so, I will let down the nets.’When they had done this, they caught so many fish that their nets were beginning to break. So they signalled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both boats, so that they began to sink. But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, ‘Go away from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man!’For he and all who were with him were amazed at the catch of fish that they had taken; and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. Then Jesus said to Simon, ‘Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching people.’When they had brought their boats to shore, they left everything and followed him.
