Bɔt di gi we dɛn bin de gi dɛnsɛf gift difrɛn frɔm wetin Sɛkɛn Lɛta Fɔ Kɔrint 9:7 tɛl wi, i se:  “Ɔlman fɔ gi wetin i mekɔp fɔ gi, i nɔ fɔ sɔri ɛn i nɔ fɔ jɛs gi nɔmɔ bikɔs dɛn fos am fɔ gi; Gɔd lɛk pɔsin we gladi fɔ gi wetin i de gi.” Tru Kristian dɛn de gi gift bikɔs dɛn lɛk ɔda pipul dɛn, ɛn nɔto patikyula de insay di ia dɛn de gi gift; ɛn dɛn nɔ de gi gift fɔ mek pɔsin gi dɛn gift bak. (Lyuk 14:12-14; rid Di Apɔsul Dɛn Wok [Akt] 20:35.) Tru Kristian dɛn kin gladi we dɛn nɔ de gɛt di yagba we pipul dɛn kin gɛt arawnd Krismas tɛm.

Di tɛm we dɛn man ya kam fɛn Jizɔs, i bin dɔn big smɔl, in nɔto bin yɔŋ bebi igen.

10, 11. Aw dɛn fɔstɛm Kristian dɛn bin de si batde? Wetin mek dɛn bin de si am da we de?

 10 The World Book Encyclopedia tɔk se, “di fɔstɛm Kristian dɛn bin fil se fɔ mek pɔsin in batde na tin we pegan dɛn de du.” Di Grik pipul dɛn we bin de trade trade, bin biliv se ɔlman gɛt spirit we de protɛkt am. Dɛn biliv bak se dis spirit bin de usay dɛn bɔn di pɔsin, ɛn frɔm da tɛm de i de bigin kia fɔ di pɔsin. Wan buk we dɛn kɔl The Lore of Birthdays bin tɔk se, “dis spirit bin gɛt majik biznɛs wit di gɔd we bin bɔn di sem de we dɛn bɔn di pɔsin.” Fɔ lɔng tɛm, batde sɛlibreshɔn gɛt fɔ du wit lukin-grɔn biznɛs; lɛk we pipul dɛn kin luk di sta dɛn fɔ no wetin go apin na dɛn layf tumara bambay.

12 We pɔsin fetful to Gɔd te i day, Gɔd de mɛmba am, ɛn i go mɔs gi am layf bak tumara bambay. (Job 14:14, 15) Ɛkliziastis 7:1 tɔk se: “Gudnem bɛtɛ pas dia dia pafyum; ɛn di de we pɔsin day bɛtɛ pas di de we i bɔn.” Di “gudnem” we wi gɛt, na di fayn padi biznɛs we wi gɛt wit Gɔd bikɔs wi fetful to am. I impɔtant fɔ no se, na wangren de Kristian dɛn fɔ de mɛmba, dat na di de we Jizɔs day, nɔto di de we i bɔn.  Wetin mek wi se so? Dis na bikɔs di “nem” we Jizɔs gɛt na in go mek wi sev.​—Di Ibru Pipul Dɛn 1:3, 4; Lyuk 22:17-20.

13, 14. Wetin mek tru Kristian dɛn nɔ de sɛlibret Ista?

13 Plɛnti pipul dɛn kin sɛlibret Ista fɔ mɛmba di tɛm we Jizɔs gɛt layf bak. Bɔt yu tink se Jizɔs bin tɛl wi fɔ de sɛlibret di tɛm we i gɛt layf bak? Nɔ, i nɔ bin ɛva tɔk so. Buk dɛn we de tɔk bɔt istri bin tɔk se dɛn fɔstɛm Kristian dɛn nɔ bin de sɛlibret Ista, ɛn Ista bin kɔmɔt frɔm dɛn pegan pipul dɛn. The Encyclopædia Britannica tɔk se: “Nɔsay nɔ de [frɔm Matyu to Rɛvɛleshɔn] we de tɔk bɔt Ista. . . . Dɛn fɔstɛm Kristian dɛn nɔ bin de tink bɔt ɛni spɛshal de we oli.”

14 Yu fil se Jiova de gladi we pipul dɛn de yuz pegan sɛlibreshɔn fɔ mɛmba di tɛm we in Pikin gɛt layf bak? Nɔ, i nɔ de gladi fɔ dat atɔl! (Sɛkɛn Lɛta Fɔ Kɔrint 6:17, 18) Infakt, di Baybul nɔ ɛva tɛl wi fɔ du dat, ɛn i nɔ ivin gi wi di rayt fɔ sɛlibret di tɛm we Jizɔs gɛt layf bak. So we pipul dɛn de sɛlibret di tɛm we Jizɔs gɛt layf bak ɛn kɔl am Ista, dɛn de sho se dɛn nɔ rili want fɔ du wetin Jiova se.

15 Wan ɔda sɛlibreshɔn we plɛnti pipul dɛn kin sɛlibret, na Nyu Ia De. Usay dis sɛlibreshɔn kɔmɔt? The World Book Encyclopedia tɔk se: “Insay di ia 46, di kiŋ we de na Rom we nem Juliɔs Siza, mek Janwari 1 fɔ bi Nyu Ia De. Di Roman pipul dɛn gi dis de to dɛn gɔd we nem Janus.

Na plɛnti say dɛn na di wɔl, pipul dɛn kin mek dɛn wayl pati ɛn drink bɔku rɔm fɔ sɛlibret Nyu Ia De. Bɔt Lɛta Fɔ  Rom 13:13 tɔk se: “Una lɛ wi de du ɔl wetin wi fɔ du lɛkɛ pipul we de na di tru layt; wi nɔ fɔ liv fri layf, wi nɔ fɔ de drɔnk, wi nɔ fɔ liv bad layf, wi nɔ fɔ de fɛt ɔ jɛlɔs wi kɔmpin.” *

17 Insay difrɛn kɔntri dɛn, pipul dɛn gɛt difrɛn tin dɛn we dɛn kin du we pɔsin de mared. I kin tan lɛk se sɔm pan dɛn tin ya nɔ bad, bɔt bɔku pan dɛn kɔmɔt insay lay lay rilijɔn. Pipul dɛn kin du dɛn tin ya fɔ mek di ɔkɔ, di yawo, ɛn di wan dɛn we kam di mared, gɛt ‘gud lɔk.’ (Ayzaya 65:11, NW) Wan pan di tin dɛn we kin apin pan mared, na we di yawo kin sɛn in flawa fɔ lɛ pipul dɛn kech am. Pipul dɛn kin se di pɔsin we kech di flawa na in nɛks go mared. Dis na sɔntin we kɔmɔt insay lay lay rilijɔn. Ɛnibɔdi we want fɔ mek Gɔd kɔntinyu fɔ lɛk am, nɔ fɔ put an pan dɛn kayn tin dɛn de.—​Rid Sɛkɛn Lɛta Fɔ Kɔrint 6:14-18.

19, 20. Wetin wan buk tɔk bɔt usay tost kɔmɔt? Wetin mek Kristian dɛn nɔ fɔ tost?

19 Wan ɔda tin we plɛnti pipul dɛn kin du di de we dɛn de mared ɔ we dɛn kin gɛt ɔda program dɛn, na fɔ tost.
