رسالة اليوم بعنوان
لماذا وكيف ومتي
هذه الثلاثة من يتجرأ ويوجهها الي الله فهو ينكر طبيعة الله المحب
" بل من أنت أيها الإنسان الذي تجاوب الله العل الجبلة تقول لجابلها لماذا صنعتني هكذا " رو ٢٠:٩
الإنسان مخلوق ضعيف
مصنوع من تراب ليس
من حقه أن يحاكم الخالق العظيم الكلي الحكمه والقدرة
فإن كان للخزاف سلطان
علي الطين أن يصنع منه ما يشاء
فبالأولي الله الخالق العظيم كأب يؤدب كل ابن يحبه ويسمح بالتجارب لكن :-
١- لا يدعكم تجربون فوق ما تستطيعون أن تتحملون
٢- احيانا تكون التجربة لأجل تزكيتكم
٣- يعطي مع التجربة المنفذ
٤- يجربكم وهو ألقائل
نقشتكم علي كفي ومن يمسسكم يمس حدقة عينه
٥-ينقذك من التجربة
فتمجده وتقول فلنشكر
٦- يسمح الله بالتجارب لكي يشعر الإنسان بضعفه ويصرخ اليه
٧- يسمح بالتجربة وينادي تعالوا الي يا جميع المتعبين والثقيلي الأحمال وأنا اريحكم
نشكرك يارب علي هذه السبعة أمور
لأنك سترتنا واعنتنا وحفظتنا
وقبلتنا إليك وأشفقت علينا وعضدتنا وأتيت بنا الي هذه الساعة
نشكرك يا رب علي كل حال وفي كل حال ومن أجل سائر الأحوال
الله الذي يشرق شمسه علي الأبرار والأشرار
يقصر هذه الأيام من أجل محبيه ويفتح لنا أبواب الكنائس
بشفاعة أم النور السند والمعونة
والي ان نلتقي
Today's message is titled
Why, how and when
These three are those who dare and direct them to God, as he denies the nature of loving God
“Rather, who are you, O man who answered God, the Most High, the mountain says to her mountain, why did you do this to me?” Rom 20: 9
Man is a weak creature
Made of dust, not his right to try the great and all-powerful Creator.
If the potter had authority,the clay has to do whatever he wants.
In the first place God the Great Creator, as a father, disciplines every son who loves him and allows experiments, but: -
1- Do not let you try above what you can bear
2- Sometimes the experience is for your recommendation
3- Give with experience the implementer
4- He tempts you while he is the few
I engraved you on my palm and whoever touches you touches his pupils
5- Save you from experience
So glorify him and say let's thank
6- God allows experiments to make a person feel vulnerable and cry out to him
7 - It is allowed to try and call. Come to me, all those who are tired and heavy in loads, and I rest you
We thank you, Lord, for these seven things
Because you covered us and helped us and kept us
We have accepted you, have compassion on us and our support, and have brought us to this hour
We thank you, Lord, for every situation, in every case, and for all other conditions
God, whose sun shines on the righteous and the bad
He shortens these days for his lovers and opens the doors of churches for us
With the intercession of the Virgin Mary
Until we meet
Dear Blessed Congregation,
This is a challenging time as the doors of the church buildings are temporarily shuttered. Do not be upset, but continue to praise His name in all things. Do you not know that YOU are the temple of God and the Spirit of God dwells in YOU
-1 Corinthians 3:16. Let us lift one another in prayer, help where we are able, and love one another. Based on the Church Synodical decision to place church services on hold, we will suspend all scheduled services until further notice. During this time, please do not forget the needs of the church.
So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not
grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.
2 Corinthians 9:7
Tithes and offerings are part of our worship; we are obligated to assist with the needs of the Church in order to ensure that the Church has what is necessary for His divine worship and to continue His apostolic works. Tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything and that He is first in our lives. May He richly bless your Christian stewardship.
