يا إِخوَتِي: أُنْظُرُوا أَيَّ مَحَبَّةٍ مَنَحَنَا الآب، حتَّى نُدْعَى أَولادًا لله، ونَحْنُ أَولادُهُ حَقًّا/See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are
See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are
First Letter of John 03/01-10: “See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.Beloved, we are God’s children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed. What we do know is this: when he is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is.And all who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure. Everyone who commits sin is guilty of lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. You know that he was revealed to take away sins, and in him there is no sin. No one who abides in him sins; no one who sins has either seen him or known him. Little children, let no one deceive you. Everyone who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous. Everyone who commits sin is a child of the devil; for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The Son of God was revealed for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. Those who have been born of God do not sin, because God’s seed abides in them; they cannot sin, because they have been born of God. The children of God and the children of the devil are revealed in this way: all who do not do what is right are not from God, nor are those who do not love their brothers and sisters.”
None of those who were invited will taste my dinner.
Luke 14/16-24: “Then Jesus said to him, ‘Someone gave a great dinner and invited many. At the time for the dinner he sent his slave to say to those who had been invited, “Come; for everything is ready now. “But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said to him, “I have bought a piece of land, and I must go out and see it; please accept my apologies. “Another said, “I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to try them out; please accept my apologies.”Another said, “I have just been married, and therefore I cannot come. “So the slave returned and reported this to his master. Then the owner of the house became angry and said to his slave, “Go out at once into the streets and lanes of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind, and the lame. “And the slave said, “Sir, what you ordered has been done, and there is still room. “Then the master said to the slave, “Go out into the roads and lanes, and compel people to come in, so that my house may be filled. For I tell you, none of those who were invited will taste my dinner.”
