KUPWILA KWA BWINA KILISHITU KWITUTUNDAIKA

Yehoba ukwasha bantu banji kupichila mu kipwilo kya bwina Kilishitu. Kipwilo kya mu Tesalonika byo kyapichilenga mu makatazho, Paulo waambijile bena Kilishitu amba, “itundaikainga ne kwikomesha anwe bene na bene, byonkatu byo [baubilenga].” (1 Tesa. 2:14; 5:11) Bena Kilishitu bajinga mu Tesalonika bachinchikile meseko na mambo a kwitemwa ne kwikwasha bene na bene.

Bakulumpe mu kipwilo kechi bakonsha kupwisha makatazho enu onse ne.

KOSESHAINGA BULUNDA BWENU NE LESA KIMYE KYONSE

Kuji bintu bikwabo byakonsha kwitukwasha kuchinchika. Jishinda jimo, ke kukosesha bulunda bwetu ne Lesa. Monai kyamwekejile John wa myaka 39 wakolelwe kikola kya kansa. Waamba’mba: “Kyankolele bingi ku muchima byo nayukile’mba nji na kino kikola, mambo nakijingatu mwanyike.” Pa kikye kimye mwana wa kwa John wajingatu na myaka isatu.

Paishijile ne lukatazho lukwabo. Bashanji John nabo bakolelwe bingi kabiji kwakebewenga wa kwibakwasha.

Pano John ne kisemi kyanji bachinchikile byepi ano makatazho? Waamba’mba, “Nangwa kya kuba nakookanga bingi, natundaikanga kisemi kyami kukosesha bulunda ne Lesa. Twatanwanga ku kupwila konse, twasapwilanga kimye kyonse kabiji twaikalanga ne na kupopwela kwa kisemi nangwa kya kuba kyakatazhanga kuba bino.” John wayukile’mba, pa kuba’mba achinchike makatazho onse, wafwainwe kwikala na bulunda bwakosa ne Lesa. Nanchi pajipo bintu bimo byaamba John byakonsha kufunjilako boba babena kupita mu makatazho nyi? Waamba’mba: “Nangwa kya kuba kimye kitanshi waakaminwe ne kupopomenwa, pa kupitapo kimye wakosele. Wayukile’mba Yehoba wamutemwa kabiji wamupele bulume bwa kumukwasha kuchinchika. Yehoba wakonsha kwimukosesha ne anweba byonkatu byo ankwasha.”

Twayai tulombenga kwi Yehoba kimye kyonse ne kwikala na balunda bawama ba mu kipwilo, kukeba bukwasho ku bakulumpe mu kipwilo ne kukosesha bulunda bwetu ne Lesa. Umvwe saka tuba bino, tukoobilanga bintu monka mwayila byambo byaambile Paulo amba: “Kimufwainwa anweba kuchinchika.”
