Nkaleta bya malwa pa ba mu nzubo yanji mu moba a mwananji.” (1 Mfu. 21:27-29; 2 Mfu. 10:10, 11, 17) Yehoba, aye “utalatala mu michima” waubijile Ahaba lusa.—Maana 17:3.

Umvwe baumvwine bibi, ko kuba’mba bafwainwe kwipelula bingi pa  kuba’mba batwajijile kupopwela Yehoba mu bukishinka ne kuketekela’mba Lesa wabo kechi uba nshiji ne.

(Yoba 14:14, 15; Yoa. 5:28, 29) Kunungapo, muntu wipelula uvuluka’mba “Lesa wa kine ukachibila bantu mambo pa bintu byonse byo boba ne pa bintu byonse byafyamika, ne kumona inge byawama nangwa byatama.” (Sapwi. 12:14) Kine, Yehoba inge ubena kuchiba mambo, utala pa bishinka byonse, ne byo twabula kuyuka atweba. Onkao mambo, kwipelula kwitukwasha kutwajijila kuketekela mwi Yehoba.

Mukoba byepi inge kya kuba bakulumpe babijika kintu kyo mwamona’mba kechi bafuukulapo bulongo ne? (Monai mafuka 10, 11)

Kabiji nangwa tuyuke byavula byepi pa kyamwekele, bino Yehoba ye yenkatu uji na bulume bwa kutala mu muchima wa muntu.

Kya bubiji, kwipelula kuketukwasha kutekanya ne kukookela byo tubena kupembelela kuba’mba Yehoba akengijilepo pa nshiji yo twamona.

13, 14. Ñanyi mingilo yaingijile Petelo, kabiji wamwesheshe byepi kubula moyo?

13 Mutumwa Petelo wajinga mukulumpe mu kipwilo wayukanyikilwe bingi. Wajinga mulunda wa kwa Yesu, kabiji bamupele mingilo ikatampe bingi. (Mat. 16:19) Mu mwaka wa 36 C.E., Petelo wasapwijile mambo awama kwi Koneleusa ne ba mu nzubo yanji. Kino kechi kyapelele ne, mambo Koneleusa wajinga muntu wabujile kuya ku mukanda. Koneleusa ne kisemi kyanji byo batambwijile mupashi wazhila, Petelo waambile’mba: “Bano bantu batambula mupashi wazhila byonkatu byo twatambwile ne atweba, onkao mambo, ñanyi wakonsha kwibakanya kubatizhiwa mu mema?”—Byu. 10:47.

Bintu byaambile Petelo byo emwenejile na meso byakwashishe jibumba jatangijilanga mu kimye kya bena Kilishitu batanshi kufuukulapo bulongo. (Byu. 15:6-11, 13, 14, 28, 29) Kyamweka bonse bena Kilishitu Bayudea ne ba mu bisaka bikwabo baumvwine bingi bulongo pa bishinka byaambile Petelo kwa kubula moyo. Kine, bamuketekejile bingi uno mwanamulume wa kishinka wakomene mu maana.—Hebe. 13:7.

15 Bino byo papichiletu moba acheche kufuma kimye kyo basambakene mu 49 C.E., Petelo wayile ku Silya Antioka. Byo ajinga kokwa, wapwanañenenga na balongo ba mu bisaka bikwabo. Kwa kubula nangwa kuzhinaukatu ne, bafunjijileko byavula ku bintu byayukile Petelo ne byo apichilemo. Onkao mambo, kibakolele bingi ku muchima kimye Petelo kyo alekele kujila nabo pamo kajo.

Mutumwa Paulo wamusanzhilemo Petelo kuba’mba uji na byubilo bya bukamfutumfutu. Mambo ka? Mambo Paulo wataainweko ku kusambakana kwaikejile mu Yelusalema mu 49 C.E., kabiji waumvwine Petelo byo aambijileko bena Kilishitu ba mu bisaka bikwabo. (Byu. 15:12; Nga. 2:13; tubyambo twa munshi.) Nga bena Kilishitu ba mu bisaka bikwabo bo bakozhezhe ku muchima kwi Petelo baubile byepi? Nanchi balekele kwingijila Lesa nyi? Nanchi Petelo bamwangachile mingilo yo aingilanga na mambo a byo alubankenye nyi?

Mu kuya kwa kimye watangijilwe na mupashi kunemba makalata abiji aji mu Baibolo. Mu nkalata yanji ya bubiji, Petelo waambile pe Paulo amba “mulongo wetu ye twatemwa.” (2 Pe. 3:15) Nangwa kya kuba kubula kufuukulapo bulongo kwaubile Petelo kwakozhezhe balongo ba mu bisaka bikwabo ku muchima, bino Yesu, aye mutwe wa kipwilo watwajijile kumwingijisha. (Efi. 1:22) Onkao mambo, ba mu kipwilo bafwainwe kulondela Yesu ne Shanji kupichila mu kulekelako Petelo mambo.

Twakonsha kuswa kino kishinka, bino kikatazha bingi inge kya kuba mulongo mu kipwilo wituzhingijisha. Inge kyaikala bino, nanchi mukoba byonka byuba Yehoba watemwa bunchibamambo bwaoloka nyi?

Kulekelako bakwenu mambo kukamwesha’mba mulondela bololoke bwa Yehoba.—Tangai Mateo 6:14, 15.
