Мысли на каждый день года по церковным чтениям из Слова Божия

Феофан Затворник

Пятница

Отчего так согрешили Анания и Сапфира? Оттого что забыли, что Бог видит их дела и помышления. Если бы содержали они в мысли, что Бог все видит и вне и внутрь, яснее чем все люди и даже они сами, не пришло бы им и в голову так покривить душою перед Апостолами. Оттого же происходят и наши все грехи и грешные замыслы. Ухитряемся все прикрыть от взоров человеческих, и думаем, что все ничего. Люди точно не видят ничего и отдают нам цену, как исправным; но это не изменяет нашей существенной ничтожности. Ведая это, тверди всяк себе: почто сатана исполняет мое сердце лгать в лицо Богу? Очи Его светлее солнца видят в сокровенных тайниках сердца; ни ночь, ни море, ни подземелье не укрывают от Него. Помни это, и потому устраивай свое внутреннее и внешнее, хоть и невидное, поведение. Если бы Всевидящий был чужд для нас, — можно бы еще равнодушно относиться к Его всеведению; а то Он же и Судия, и суд Свой, в силу всеведения, произносит нередко прежде, чем чаем. Может быть, там у Него уже положено тотчас произнести суд и над нами, когда только мы еще думаем укрыться с своими грехами в темной лжи: «Не видит Бог!».

Отрывки к тексту:
Act 5:1-11
Joh 5:30-6:2
1
But a man named Ananias, with his wife Sapphira, sold a piece of property,
2
and kept back some of the price for himself, with his wife’s full knowledge, and bringing a portion of it, he laid it at the apostles’ feet.
3
But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back some of the price of the land?
4
While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not under your control? Why is it that you have conceived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.”
5
And as he heard these words, Ananias fell down and breathed his last; and great fear came over all who heard of it.
6
The young men got up and covered him up, and after carrying him out, they buried him.
7
Now there elapsed an interval of about three hours, and his wife came in, not knowing what had happened.
8
And Peter responded to her, “Tell me whether you sold the land for such and such a price?” And she said, “Yes, that was the price.”
9
Then Peter said to her, “Why is it that you have agreed together to put the Spirit of the Lord to the test? Behold, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out as well.”
10
And immediately she fell at his feet and breathed her last, and the young men came in and found her dead, and they carried her out and buried her beside her husband.
11
And great fear came over the whole church, and over all who heard of these things.

30
“I can do nothing on My own initiative. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.
31
“If I alone testify about Myself, My testimony is not true.
32
There is another who testifies of Me, and I know that the testimony which He gives about Me is true.
33
You have sent to John, and he has testified to the truth.
34
But the testimony which I receive is not from man, but I say these things so that you may be saved.
35
He was the lamp that was burning and was shining and you were willing to rejoice for a while in his light.
36
But the testimony which I have is greater than the testimony of John; for the works which the Father has given Me to accomplish—the very works that I do—testify about Me, that the Father has sent Me.
37
And the Father who sent Me, He has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time nor seen His form.
38
You do not have His word abiding in you, for you do not believe Him whom He sent.
39
You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me;
40
and you are unwilling to come to Me so that you may have life.
41
I do not receive glory from men;
42
but I know you, that you do not have the love of God in yourselves.
43
I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, you will receive him.
44
How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and you do not seek the glory that is from the one and only God?
45
Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father; the one who accuses you is Moses, in whom you have set your hope.
46
For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me.
47
But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?”
1
After these things Jesus went away to the other side of the Sea of Galilee (or Tiberias).
2
A large crowd followed Him, because they saw the signs which He was performing on those who were sick.
