Knijga O Kristu

Galaćanima 6:1-18

Što sijemo, to ćemo i žeti

1Braćo draga, zapadne li tko u kakav grijeh, ispravljajte ga u duhu blagosti pazeći da i sami ne podlegnete napasti! 2Pomažite jedni drugima u teškoćama i nevoljama pa ćete tako ispuniti Kristov zakon. 3Misli li tko da je jako važan, sam sebe zavarava jer to nije.

4Neka svatko preispituje svoje postupke pa će razloga za zadovoljstvo naći u sebi, a ne uspoređujući se s drugima. 5Jer svatko će nositi vlastito breme.

6Koji primaju pouku Božje riječi, trebali bi sva dobra dijeliti sa svojim učiteljem.

7Ne obmanjujte se—Bogu se ne možete izrugivati i olako proći. Što posijete, to ćete i žeti! 8Koji žive udovoljavajući svojim grešnim željama, požet će propast i smrt. Ali koji žive da ugode Duhu, požet će u njemu vječni život. 9Nemojte da vam dojadi činiti dobro jer ćemo, ne posustanemo li, požeti blagoslov kad za to dođe vrijeme. 10Zato bismo, kad god nam se pokaže prilika, trebali činiti dobro svima, posebice svojoj braći i sestrama u Kristu.

Zaključak

11Pogledajte ova velika slova. To vam sada pišem vlastitom rukom. 12Ti koji vas pokušavaju primorati da se obrežete čine to samo zbog jednog razloga—ne žele da ih progone zbog učenja da ljude može spasiti samo Kristov križ. 13Čak i oni koji se zalažu za obrezanje zapravo ne izvršavaju cijeli Zakon. Žele samo da se vi obrežete kako bi se mogli hvaliti time što ste njihovi učenici.

14Što se mene tiče, Bože sačuvaj da bih se ponosio ičim osim križem našega Gospodina Isusa Krista. Na njemu je umrlo moje zanimanje za svijet i zanimanje svijeta za mene. 15Nije više važno jesmo li obrezani ili nismo. Važno je jesmo li zaista postali novima, drukčijim ljudima. 16Neka su Božje milosrđe i mir sa svima onima koji žive premao tome načelu. Oni su Božji Izrael.

17Neka mi odsad nitko više time ne dodijava jer na tijelu nosim ožiljke koji pokazuju da pripadam Isusu.

18Draga braćo, neka milost našega Gospodina Isusa Krista bude s vašim duhom! Amen.

King James Version

Galatians 6:1-18

1Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. 2Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. 3For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. 4But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. 5For every man shall bear his own burden. 6Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things. 7Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. 9And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 10As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. 11Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand. 12As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ. 13For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh. 14But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. 15For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. 16And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God. 17From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus. 18Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
