CHOLINGA CHA MUTUWU

Monga mmene Yesu ananenera, maboma komanso atsogoleri azipembedzo amakhazikitsa malamulo kuti alepheretse ntchito yathu yolalikira

MPINGO wachikhristu wa ku Yerusalemu unakhazikitsidwa pa Pentekosite mu 33 C.E. Koma patangopita milungu yowerengeka mpingowu unayamba kukumana ndi mavuto. Satana anaona kuti imeneyi inali nthawi yabwino yoti awononge mpingowu chifukwa unali usanakhazikike. Iye anachititsa atsogoleri achipembedzo kuti aletse ntchito yolalikira za Ufumu. Komabe, atumwi anapitiriza kulalikira molimba mtima ndipo zimenezi zinachititsa kuti amuna ndi akazi ambiri akhale “okhulupirira Ambuye.”Mac. 4:18, 33; 5:14.

Atumwi anasangalala “chifukwa chakuti Mulungu anawaona kuti ndi oyenera kuchitiridwa chipongwe chifukwa cha dzina la Yesu”

2 Chifukwa chokwiya ndi zimenezi, otsutsawo anayambanso kuzunza mpingo wachikhristu ndipo anachititsa kuti atumwi onse atsekeredwe m’ndende. Koma usiku mngelo wa Yehova anatsegula zitseko za ndende ndipo pamene kunkacha, atumwi anayambiranso kugwira ntchito yolalikira. Apanso atumwiwo anamangidwa n’kupita nawo kwa olamulira komwe anaimbidwa mlandu wophwanya lamulo lowaletsa kulalikira. Koma iwo anayankha molimba mtima kuti: “Ife tiyenera kumvera Mulungu monga wolamulira, osati anthu.” Olamulirawo atamva zimenezi anakwiya kwambiri moti ankafuna “kungowapha.” Zinthu zitafika povuta, mphunzitsi wina wa Chilamulo wolemekezeka, dzina lake Gamaliyeli, anachenjeza olamulirawo kuti: “Musamale . . . Alekeni amuna amenewa musalimbane nawo.” N’zodabwitsa kuti olamulirawo anamvera mawu ake ndipo anamasula atumwiwo. Kodi atumwi okhulupirikawa anachita chiyani? Mopanda mantha “anapitiriza mwakhama kuphunzitsa ndi kulengeza uthenga wabwino wonena za Khristu, Yesu.”Mac. 5:17-21, 27-42; Miy. 21:1, 30.

3, 4. (a) Kodi Satana wakhala akugwiritsa ntchito njira iti polimbana ndi anthu a Mulungu? (b) Kodi tikambirana chiyani m’mutu uno ndi m’mitu iwiri yotsatira?

Otsutsawa amaimba mlandu anthu a Mulungu kuti amaphwanya malamulo. Mwachitsanzo, amatiimba mlandu wakuti ndife osokoneza mtendere, oukira boma komanso wakuti kugawira mabuku kumene timachita ndi bizinezi. Abale akaona kuti n’zoyenera amapita kukhoti kuti akatsutse mabodza amenewa. Kodi zinthu zawayendera bwanji? Kodi zigamulo zimene makhoti anapereka zaka zambiri  zapitazo zimakukhudzani bwanji inuyo panokha? Tiyeni tione mmene milandu ina inayendera kukhoti komanso mmene yathandizira “kuteteza uthenga wabwino ndi kukhazikitsa mwalamulo ntchito ya uthenga wabwino.”Afil. 1:7.

4 M’mutu umenewu tikambirana zimene tachita poteteza ufulu wathu kuti tizitha kulalikira. M’mitu iwiri yotsatira tiona milandu ina imene tinapita nayo kukhoti chifukwa chosafuna kukhala mbali ya dziko komanso kuti tipitirize kutsatira mfundo za Ufumu.
