Zimenezi zinawathandiza kukhala ndi nthawi yokwanira yochita zinthu zauzimu pamodzi ndi ana awo aakazi awiri.

Chitsanzo chabwino kwambiri ndi cha Yesu, yemwe amadziwika monga “Khristu” osati “mmisiri wa matabwa.” (Mateyo 16:16; Maliko 6:3) Anthu onsewa anazindikira kuti ngakhale anali ndi luso, chuma kapena udindo m’dzikoli, kutumikira Mulungu kunayenera kukhala cholinga chawo chachikulu pamoyo. Iwo anadziwa kuti cholinga chabwino ndiponso chopindulitsa kwambiri chinali kukhala munthu woopa Mulungu.

(Yohane 17:3) Choncho, ‘tisalandire kukoma mtima kwa m’chisomo cha Mulungu n’kuphonya cholinga cha kukoma mtima kumeneko.’ (2 Akorinto 6:1) M’malo mwake, tiyenera kugwiritsa ntchito moyo wathu wamtengo wapatali kulemekeza Yehova. Tiyeni tilalikire uthenga umene umabweretsa chisangalalo panopa komanso umene umatsogolera ku moyo wosatha.
