Popanda kuona zizindikiro za mbalamezi, anthuwo amatha kukomoka kapena kufa kumene asakudziwa kuti apuma mpweya woipa.

2 Mwauzimu, Akhristu amafanana ndi anthu ogwira ntchito mu mgodi. Motani? Pamene Yesu amapatsa ophunzira ake ntchito yolalikira uthenga wabwino padziko lonse, ankadziwa kuti akuwatumiza m’dziko loopsa, lotsogoleredwa ndi Satana ndiponso mzimu wa dziko.

5, 6. Kodi mzimu woyera umatithandiza bwanji, ndipo kodi tiyenera kuchitanji kuti tipatsidwe mzimuwo?

5 Si Akhristu a m’nthawi ya atumwi okha amene anali ndi mwayi wolandira mzimu woyera. Ifenso tingaulandire ndipo mzimu wa Mulungu ungatipatse mphamvu kuti tizichita zinthu zabwino komanso kuti tizitumikira Mulungu. (Aroma 12:11; Afil. 4:13) Mzimu woyera ungatithandizenso kukhala ndi “zipatso za mzimu” monga chikondi, kukoma mtima, ndi ubwino. (Agal. 5:22, 23) Komabe, Yehova Mulungu sapatsa anthu mzimu woyera mokakamiza.

6 Ndiye ndi bwino kudzifunsa kuti, ‘Kodi ndingatani kuti ndilandire mzimu woyera?’ Baibulo limasonyeza kuti pali zinthu zambiri zimene tingachite. Chinthu chofunika kwambiri komanso chosavuta ndi kupempha Mulungu kuti atipatse mzimu wake woyera. (Werengani Luka 11:13.) Chinthu china chofunika ndicho kuphunzira ndiponso kugwiritsa ntchito malangizo ouziridwa ndi mzimu opezeka m’Mawu a Mulungu. (2 Tim. 3:16) Sikuti aliyense amene amawerenga Baibulo amalandira mzimu wa Mulungu. Koma Mkhristu woona akamaphunzira Mawu a Mulungu angamachite zinthu mogwirizana ndi Mawu ouziridwa. Tifunikiranso kuzindikira kuti Yehova anasankha Yesu kukhala womuimira komanso njira imene Mulungu akuperekera mzimu wake.

(1 Pet. 2:21) Tikamayesetsa kutsatira Khristu, m’pamene timalandiranso mzimu woyera.

7 Koma mzimu wa dziko umachititsa anthu kusonyeza makhalidwe a Satana. (Werengani Aefeso 2:1-3.) Mzimu wa dziko umagwira ntchito m’njira zambiri. Monga mmene timaonera masiku ano, mzimu wa dziko umalimbikitsa anthu kusamvera malamulo a Mulungu. Umalimbikitsanso “chilakolako cha thupi ndi chilakolako cha maso ndi kudzionetsera ndi zimene munthu ali nazo pamoyo wake.” (1 Yoh. 2:16) Umachititsa anthu kuchita ntchito zathupi monga dama, kupembedza mafano, kukhulupirira mizimu, nsanje, kupsa mtima, ndiponso kumwa mwauchidakwa. (Agal. 5:19-21) Umalimbikitsanso nkhani zampatuko zimene zimaipitsa zinthu zoyera. (2 Tim. 2:14-18) Ngati munthu amatsatira kwambiri mzimu wa dziko, amasonyeza kwambiri makhalidwe a Satana.

8 N’zosatheka kuti munthu akhale wosatsogoleredwa ndi mzimu uliwonse. Munthu aliyense  ayenera kusankha, kaya kutsogoleredwa ndi mzimu woyera kapena mzimu wa dziko. Anthu amene akutsogoleredwa ndi mzimu wa dziko angasinthe n’kumatsogoleredwa ndi mzimu woyera. Koma n’zothekanso kuti anthu amene akutsogoleredwa ndi mzimu woyera ayambe kutsogoleredwa ndi mzimu wa dziko. (Afil. 3:18, 19) Tsopano tiyeni tikambirane zimene tingachite kuti tipewe mzimu wa dziko.

Kodi Tingadziwe Bwanji Kuti Tayamba Kutsogoleredwa ndi Mzimu wa Dziko?

9-11. Kodi tingadziwe bwanji kuti tayamba kutsogoleredwa ndi mzimu wa dziko?

9 Anthu ogwira ntchito m’migodi amene tawatchula kumayambiriro kwa nkhani ino, ankagwiritsa ntchito mbalame kuti adziwe ngati mu mgodi muli mpweya woipa. Ngati wogwira ntchito mu mgodi waona mbalame itagwa, amadziwa kuti afunika kuthawa kuti apulumuke. Nanga pamoyo wathu wauzimu, kodi tingadziwe bwanji kuti mzimu wa dziko wayamba kutitsogolera?

10 Titangophunzira choonadi cha m’Mawu a Mulungu n’kudzipereka kwa Yehova, mwina tinkakonda kuwerenga kwambiri Baibulo. Mosakayikira nthawi zambiri tinkapemphera mochokera pansi pamtima. Ndipo tinkasangalala kupezeka pa misonkhano ya mpingo komanso tinkaona msonkhano uliwonse kuti ndi njira yotitsitsimutsira mwauzimu monga amachitira madzi kwa munthu wa ludzu. Zimenezi zinatithandiza kuti tisiyane ndi mzimu wa dziko.

N’zoona kuti tingakhale ndi zochita zambiri zofuna nthawi ndi mphamvu zathu ndipo zingakhale zovuta kuti tipitirize kuchita zinthu zonse zauzimu. Koma ngati tinasiya kuchita zina mwa zinthu zimenezi, kodi chingakhale chifukwa chakuti tayamba kutsogoleredwa ndi mzimu wa dziko? Kodi tsopano tingayesetse kuyambiranso kuchita zinthu zabwino zimene tinkachita kale?

Ndiponso kuti munthu yense adye namwe naone zabwino m’ntchito zake zonse; ndiwo mtulo wa Mulungu.” (Mlal. 3:12, 13) Komabe, Yesu anadziwa kuti mzimu wa dziko umachititsa kuti anthu asamadziletse pa zinthu zimenezi.

14 Kodi tingadziwe bwanji kuti sitikutengera mzimu wa dziko pankhani ya kudya ndi kumwa kwambiri? Tingadzifunse kuti: ‘Kodi ndimamva bwanji ndikawerenga malangizo m’Baibulo kapena m’mabuku athu onena za kususuka? Kodi ndimaona kuti palibe cholakwika ndi zimene ndimachita kapena ndimaona kuti malangizo amenewa si ofunika komanso ndi onyanyira? * Kodi ndimawaona motani malangizo okhudza  kumwa mowa mosapitirira muyezo ndi kupewa “maphwando a phokoso”? Kodi ndimanyalanyaza malangizo amenewa, n’kumaganiza kuti sakundikhudza? Ngati ena sakusangalala ndi mmene ndimamwera, kodi ndimadziikira kumbuyo kapena kukwiya kumene? Kodi ndimalimbikitsa ena kunyalanyaza malangizo a m’Baibulo amenewa?’ Indedi, tingadziwe kuti munthu akutsogoleredwa ndi mzimu wa dziko, mwa kuona mmene amaonera nkhani imeneyi.​—Yerekezerani ndi Aroma 13:11-14.

16 Mzimu wa dziko umene umalimbikitsa kwambiri anthu kukhala ndi mtima wodziwonetsera, wachititsa anthu ambiri kukhala ndi nkhawa pa zinthu zosafunikira. Dziko limafuna kuti tizikhulupirira kuti munthu akakhala ndi ndalama ndiye kuti ali ndi moyo wabwino.

Anthu amene amatengeka ndi maganizo amenewa amakhala akapolo a chuma ndipo nthawi zonse amakhala ndi nkhawa yoti apeze zinthu zatsopano, zazikulu komanso zotsogola. (Miy. 18:11) Maganizo olakwika amenewa amayambitsa nkhawa imene imalepheretsa anthu kukula mwauzimu.​—Werengani Mateyo 13:18, 22.

17. Kodi tingapewe bwanji kutsamwitsidwa ndi nkhawa?

17 Tingapewe kutsamwitsidwa ndi nkhawa ngati titsatira malangizo a Yesu akuti: “Chotero  pitirizani kufuna ufumu choyamba ndi chilungamo [cha Mulungu].” Yesu akutitsimikizira kuti tikachita zimenezi, tidzapatsidwa zinthu zonse zimene timafunikira pamoyo wathu. (Mat. 6:33) Kodi tingasonyeze bwanji kuti timakhulupirira lonjezo limeneli? Njira imodzi ndi mwa kufuna choyamba chilungamo cha Mulungu, kapena kuti kumvera malamulo a Mulungu pankhani za ndalama.

Tiziyesetsa kulipira ngongole, ndipo ‘Inde wathu azikhaladi Inde’ pankhani imeneyi. (Mat. 5:37; Sal. 37:21) Kuona mtima kotere sikungachititse munthu kukhala wolemera, koma kumasangalatsa Mulungu, ndipo munthu amakhala ndi chikumbumtima chabwino, komanso sakhala ndi nkhawa zambiri.

18. Kodi Yesu anatipatsa chitsanzo chotani, ndipo timapindula bwanji tikamamutsanzira?

Komanso tikamalalikira, timakhala tikugwira ntchito ndi mzimu umenewu.
