Kakweshi muka-Kulishitu mwasaka kupwa namuchima wakulikanga ngana uze apwile nawo Ndeyotelefweko. (Tangenu WaYowano 3, 9, 10.) Twatela kulihulisa ngwetu: ‘Uno ngweji kukolezezanga vakwetu kushipilitu tahi? Kutala ngweji kwitavila washi jindongi nakukundwiza vandumbwetu vaze vali nakutwaminyina tahi?’

Kalama wakujinguluka eji kufwila kutachikiza kanawa vandumbwetu anakusaka kutongola nakuzata navo muwande nge chinahase. Kaha nawa eji kukekesanga tanga yandumbwetu kana. (Chimo. 1, 3:4, 5) Lizavu lyavakulwane nakalama wakujinguluka veji kukekesanga vyuma vyamuVisoneka vize  vatela kutesamo vaka-kuzachila navakulwane.—Chimo. 1, 3:1-10, 12, 13; Petu. 1, 5:1-3.

Paulu alisuwile kwambulwila munganda kana, kaha azangile chikuma vandumbwenyi “vaka-kujila.” (Koli. 1, 1:1, 2) Oloze awanyinenga ukalu wakukafwa vandumbwenyi vaze vechelelele vaka-ujila muchikungulwilo. Paulu alwezele vakulwane vahane muka-ujila kuli Satana, kulumbununa kumufumisa muchikungulwilo. Hakusaka chikungulwilo chipwenga chitoma, vakulwane vatelele kufumisamo “chimbalwila.” (Koli. 1, 5:1, 5-7, 12) Nge natukundwiza vyuma vanakase vakulwane vyakufumisa mutu muchikungulwilo uze nahono kupihilila nakwalumuka, kaha natulingisa chikungulwilo chipwenga chitoma, nakulingisa nawa uze mutu apihilile nakwalumuka nakulomba Yehova amukonekele.

Lwola lumwe vandumbwetu vanalikokojwesanga mwomwo vyuma mukusekasana chavo kavyatambukile kanawako, chipwe umwe nali jimbongo. Vandumbwetu vamwe vanatwalenga vakwavo kujizango jakusopela, oloze Mukanda waKalunga watulweza ngwawo chapwa chakwoloka kujimbalisa luheto lwetu kuhambakana kusaula lijina lyaKalunga nakuneha liuya muchikungulwilo. [2] Twatela kukavangiza mazu aYesu aze atukafwa mwakukumishila vikokojola navakwetu. (Tangenu Mateu 5:23, 24; 18:15-17.) Nge natulinga ngocho, kaha natutwama mukuunda navandumbwetu vosena.

16. Mwomwo ika vatu jaKalunga vatela kulinunga?

Kalunga ahanjikile vyuma mwakalingila vatu jenyi ngwenyi: “Nangukavahaka hamwe nge mikoko mulimba, nge utanga wamikoko kuulilo wavo.” (Mika 2:12) Kaha nawa Yehova ahanjikile kuhichila muli kapolofweto Zefwanyiya ngwenyi: “Nangukalumuna lilimi lyavatu veka naveka likapwe lilimi litoma [muchano wamuVisoneka], mangana vosena vakasanyikenga halijina lyaYehova, mangana vakalinunge hamwe nakunguzachila [chipwe “nakungulemesa,” kwinyikila chamwishi].” (Zefwa. 3:9) Tweji kwivwanga kuwaha chikuma kuzachila Yehova hamwe mukulinunga.

Vakulwane veji kufwilanga kwolola muka-Kulishitu nge nayi mujila yakuhenga (Talenu palangalafu 17)

17. Vakulwane vatela kulinga ika numba chikungulwilo chipwenga chitoma nakulinunga?

Omu mwahichile tukweji vavandende, avasonekelele mukanda wenyi wamuchivali wakuvasangejeka mwomwo vakulwane vakavangijile vyuma avalwezele. Nge muka-Kulishitu nayi mujila yakuhenga chakuzeneka ivene kutachikiza, kaha vakulwane vatela kwolola mutu kana nashipilitu yayivwovu.—Ngale. 6:1.

18. (a) Jindongi jamuMazu aKalunga jakafwile ngachilihi vikungulwilo vyamulikulukaji lyamyaka lyakulivanga? (b) Vyuma muka natushimutwila muchihande nachikavangizaho?
