【每日福音 | Daily Gospel】五旬節後第十二週星期日(2014-08-31/ 08-18)

正教會今日讀經
格前/ 林前15:1-11
  弟兄們!我願意你們認清,我們先前給你們傳報的福音,這福音你們已接受了,且在其站穩了;假使你們照我給你們所傳報的話持守了福音,就必因這福音得救,否則,你們就白白地信了。我當日把我所領受而又傳給你們的,其中首要的是:基督照經上記載的,為我們的罪死了,被埋葬了,且照經上記載的,第三天復活了,並且顯現給刻法,以後顯現給那十二位;此後,又一同顯現給五百多弟兄,其中多半到現在還活著,有些已經死了。隨後,顯現給雅各伯,以後,顯現給眾宗徒;最後,也顯現了給我這個像流產兒的人。我原是宗徒中最小的一個,不配稱為宗徒,因為我迫害過天主的教會。然而,因天主的恩寵,我成為今日的我;天主賜給我的恩寵沒有落空,我比他們眾人更勞碌;其實不是我,而是天主的恩寵偕同我。總之,不拘是我,或是他們,我都這樣傳了,你們也都這樣信了。

   Now I am reminding you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you indeed received and in which you also stand. Through it you are also being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you, unless you believed in vain. For I handed on to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures; that he was buried; that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures; that he appeared to Kephas, then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at once, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. After that he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one born abnormally, he appeared to me. For I am the least of the apostles, not fit to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me has not been ineffective. Indeed, I have toiled harder than all of them; not I, however, but the grace of God (that is) with me. Therefore, whether it be I or they, so we preach and so you believed.

瑪/ 太19:16-26
  有一個人來到耶穌跟前說:「師傅,我該行什麼『善』為得永生?」耶穌對他說:「你為什麼問我關於『善』?善的只一個。如果你願意進入生命,就該遵守誡命。」他對耶穌說:「什麼誡命?」耶穌說:「就是:不可殺人,不可奸淫,不可偷盜,不可作假見證,應孝敬父母,應愛你的近人,如愛你自己。」那少年對耶穌說:「這一切我都遵守了,還缺少什麼?」耶穌對他說:「你若願意是成全的,去!變賣你所有的,施捨給窮人,你必有寶藏在天上;然後來跟隨我。」少年人一聽這話,就憂悶的走了,因為他擁有許多產業。於是,耶穌對門徒說:「我實在告訴你們:富人難進天國。我再告訴你們:駱駝穿過針孔,比富人進天國還容易。」門徒們聽了,就非常驚異說:「這樣,誰還能得救呢?」耶穌注視他們說:「為人這是不可能的,但為天主,一切都是可能的。」

  Now someone approached him and said, “Teacher, what good must I do to gain eternal life?” He answered him, “Why do you ask me about the good? There is only One who is good. If you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.” He asked him, “Which ones?” And Jesus replied, ” ‘You shall not kill; you shall not commit adultery; you shall not steal; you shall not bear false witness; honor your father and your mother’; and ‘you shall love your neighbor as yourself.'” The young man said to him, “All of these I have observed. What do I still lack?” Jesus said to him, “If you wish to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to (the) poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” When the young man heard this statement, he went away sad, for he had many possessions. Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Amen, I say to you, it will be hard for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and said, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “For human beings this is impossible, but for God all things are possible.”
