انجیل متی

فصل ششم

صدقه دادن

۱هوشیار باشید که کار های نیک خود را برای جلب توجه مردم پیش چشم دیگران انجام ندهید زیرا اگر چنین کنید، هیچ اجری نزد پدر آسمانی خود ندارید. ۲پس هرگاه صدقه می دهی آن را با دُهل و سُرنا اعلام نکن، چنانکه منافقان در کنیسه ها و سرکها می کنند تا مورد ستایش مردم قرار بگیرند. بیقین بدانید که آنها اجر خود را یافته اند! ۳و اما تو، هرگاه صدقه می دهی نگذار دست چپ تو از آنچه دست راستت می کند آگاه شود. ۴از صدقه دادن تو کسی باخبر نشود و پدری که هیچ چیز از نظر او پنهان نیست اجر تو را خواهد داد.

دعا

(همچنین در لوقا ۱۱: ۲ - ۴)

۵وقتی دعا می کنید مانند منافقان نباشید. آنها دوست دارند در کنیسه ها و گوشه های سرکها بایستند و دعا بخوانند تا مردم آنها را ببینند. یقین بدانید که آن ها اجر خود را یافته اند! ۶هرگاه تو دعا می کنی به اندرون خانۀ خود برو، در را ببند و در خلوت، در حضور پدر نادیدۀ خود دعا کن و پدری که هیچ چیز از نظر او پنهان نیست اجر تو را خواهد داد. ۷در وقت دعا مانند دیگران وِردهای باطل را تکرار نکنید، آنها گمان می کنند با تکرار زیاد، دعای شان مستجاب می شود. ۸پس مثل ایشان نباشید زیرا پدر شما احتیاجات شما را پیش از آنکه از او بخواهید می داند. ۹پس شما اینطور دعا کنید: «ای پدر آسمانی ما، نام تو مقدس باد. ۱۰پادشاهی تو بیاید. ارادۀ تو همانطور که در آسمان اجرا می شود، در زمین نیز اجرا شود. ۱۱نان روزانۀ ما را امروز به ما بده. ۱۲خطایای ما را ببخش، چنانکه ما نیز کسانی را که به ما خطا کرده اند می بخشیم. ۱۳ما را از وسوسه ها دور نگه دار و از شریر رهایی ده، زیرا پادشاهی و قدرت و جلال تا ابدالآباد از تو است. آمین.»

۱۴چون اگر شما خطایای دیگران را ببخشید پدر آسمانی شما نیز شما را خواهد بخشید. ۱۵اما اگر شما مردم را نبخشید پدر آسمانی شما نیز خطایای شما را نخواهد بخشید.

روزه

۱۶وقتی روزه می گیرید مانند منافقان، خود را افسرده نشان ندهید. آنها چهره های خود را تغییر می دهند تا روزه دار بودن خود را به رُخ دیگران بکشند. بیقین بدانید که آن ها اجر خود را یافته اند! ۱۷اما تو وقتی روزه می گیری، سرت را چرب کن و صورت خود را بشوی ۱۸تا مردم از روزۀ تو با خبر نشوند، بلکه فقط پدر تو که در نهان است آن را بداند و پدری که هیچ چیز از نظر او پنهان نیست اجر تو را خواهد داد.

گنج آسمانی

(همچنین در لوقا ۱۲: ۴۳ - ۴۴)

۱۹گنج های خود را بر روی زمین، جایی که کُویه و زنگ به آن زیان می رساند و دزدان نقب زده آن را می دزدند، ذخیره نکنید. ۲۰بلکه گنج های خود را در عالم بالا، یعنی در جایی که کُویه و زنگ به آن آسیبی نمی رسانند و دزدان نقب نمی زنند و آن را نمی دزدند، ذخیره کنید. ۲۱زیرا هرجا گنج تو است، دل تو نیز در آنجا خواهد بود.

چراغ بدن

(همچنین در لوقا ۱۱: ۳۴ - ۳۶)

۲۲چراغ بدن، چشم است. اگر چشم تو سالم باشد، تمام وجودت روشن است ۲۳اما اگر چشم تو سالم نباشد تمام وجودت در تاریکی خواهد بود. پس اگر آن نوری که در تو است ظلمت باشد، آن چه ظلمت بزرگی خواهد بود!

خدا و دارایی

(همچنین در لوقا ۱۶: ۱۳ و ۱۲: ۲۲ - ۳۱)

۲۴هیچ کس نمی تواند بندۀ دو ارباب باشد چون یا از اولی بدش می آید و دومی را دوست دارد و یا به اولی ارادت پیدا می کند و دومی را حقیر می شمارد. شما نمی توانید هم بندۀ خدا باشید و هم در بند مال.

۲۵بنابر این به شما می گویم: برای زندگی خود تشویش نکنید، که چه بخورید و یا چه بنوشید و نه برای بدن خود که چه بپوشید، زیرا زندگی از غذا و بدن از لباس مهمتر است. ۲۶پرندگان را ببینید: آن ها نه می کارند، نه درو می کنند و نه در انبارها ذخیره می کنند، ولی پدر آسمانی شما روزی آن ها را می دهد. مگر ارزش شما به مراتب از آن ها بیشتر نیست؟ ۲۷کدام یک از شما می تواند با نگرانی ساعتی به عمر خود بیافزاید؟

۲۸چرا برای لباس تشویش می کنید؟ سوسن های صحرا را ببینید چگونه نمو می کنند، آن ها نه زحمت می کشند و نه می ریسند. ۲۹ولی بدانید که حتی سلیمان هم با آن همه حشمت و جلال مثل یکی از آن ها آراسته نشد. ۳۰پس اگر خدا علف صحرا را که امروز هست و فردا به تنور ریخته می شود این طور می آراید، آیا شما را، ای کم ایمانان، به مراتب بهتر نخواهد پوشانید! ۳۱پس پریشان نباشید و نگویید: «چه بخوریم؟»، «چه بنوشیم؟» و یا «چه بپوشیم؟» ۳۲تمام ملتهای دنیا برای به دست آوردن این چیز ها تلاش می کنند، اما پدر آسمانی شما می داند که شما به همه این چیزها احتیاج دارید. ۳۳اول پادشاهی خدا و عدالت او را بطلبید، و همۀ این چیز ها نیز به شما داده خواهد شد. ۳۴پس نگران فردا نباشید، نگرانی فردا برای فرداست و بدی امروز برای امروز کافی است.

How Do We Relate to God, Our Creator? (The Breeze of Worship)
Is the Almighty God worthy of the glory of our Creator, we love and worship Him for His sake, or for His blessings or to meet our needs? One of the shortcomings of us humans is that many of us can't love anyone without content, and that's what has affected our relationship with God. For this reason, instead of focusing all our thoughts and attention on God, who is holy, we usually focus on His blessings that come to us. We should worship Him because of His holiness and our Creator.

True Fasting

True Fasting (With You)
In Christianity, the purpose of fasting is not just to eat and drink water, but to deepen our relationship with God the Creator. We want to fast with God, either to hear God's voice on a particular subject or to receive a prayer answer. We also determine the type of fasting. For example, "Some people decide not to eat anything for 4 days and drink only a little water, and some people decide to eat only simple food for a few days or, for example, they do not eat or drink anything from morning to noon." To better understand the issue, we invite you to listen to this program. Thanks!

Warning to the Rich

Warning to the Rich (With You)
When we look at these verses, we see how the rich exploit the helpless and oppressed. They take advantage of their energy and hard work, and do not pay them. God hears the cries of such people and sends pain and suffering to the rich who love money. From these verses we learn that whether we are employers or workers, we must recognize that God is present in our lives, and we must do what is right.

About Fasting

About Fasting (With You)
God Almighty accepts a fast that is done for the right reasons. Christians fast to humble themselves before God, to control their bodies, and to receive more guidance and power from the Holy Spirit. A fast that is pleasing to God is done in humility and with loving acts. Without humility and loving deeds, fasting is just a pretense.

Prayer - Fellowship With God

Prayer - Fellowship With God (With You)
Prayer is talking to God and confiding in Him. When we pray, God is more interested in our hearts than in our words. In prayer, we should bring what we have in our hearts to God, not just repeat the words we have memorized to God or words that we don’t understand. In prayer, God is more interested in establishing a relationship with us than anything else. He wants words that come from the bottom of our hearts, not just special formal words.

Blessed Are Those Who Hunger and Thirst for Righteousness (Reflections on Life 2)
Why it is only through faith in Jesus Christ that man is justified? The Bible tells us that only Jesus Christ can free us from the bondage of sin and death. A freedom that was not possible to be paid for in mortal things like gold and silver but with the precious blood of Christ, who was sacrificed in our place like a perfect lamb. (1 Peter 1: 18-19)

Injustice Corrupted Qayyum (Colour of Life)
Human beings, in order to achieve their desires and goals, ignore all the ups and downs and hardships, and endure many hardships. They are trying to remove any obstacles that, like the shadow of the dark clouds of despair, cover the clear sky of their dreams from all sides. But from time to time, these clouds create a huge storm in a person's life, and it leaves nothing but pain and despair. And it forces man to trample on his conscience and do things that he did not dream of in that alley. We invite you to listen to this program to better understand the issue. Thank!
