Ndiyeno tonsefe tingachite bwino kudzifunsa kuti, ‘Kodi ndingatsanzire bwanji Abulahamu polimbitsa ubwenzi wanga ndi Yehova?’

Isaki ananyamula nkhuni ndipo Abulahamu ananyamula mpeni komanso zoyatsira moto. Ulendowu unali wovuta kwambiri kwa Abulahamu. Koma osati chifukwa choti anali wokalamba, popeza pa nthawiyi anali adakali ndi mphamvu. Unali wovuta chifukwa Yehova anali atamuuza kuti akapereke nsembe mwana wakeyo.—Gen. 22:1-8.

4 Zimene Yehova anauza Abulahamu kuti achitezi, zikanasonyeza ngati Abulahamu analidi ndi chikhulupiriro cholimba kapena ayi. Anthu ena amanena kuti Mulungu anasonyeza nkhanza pouza Abulahamu kuti apereke mwana wake nsembe. Amatinso Abulahamu ankangomvera Mulungu n’chimbulimbuli osadziwa zimene akuchita. Koma anthuwa amanena zimenezi chifukwa alibe chikhulupiriro komanso sadziwa kuti chikhulupiriro chenicheni ndi chiyani. (1 Akor. 2:14-16) Si zoona kuti Abulahamu ankangomvera Mulungu n’chimbulimbuli. M’malomwake ankamvera chifukwa anali ndi chikhulupiriro cholimba. Ankadziwa kuti Atate wake wakumwamba sangamupemphe kuti achite zinthu zimene zingapangitse kuti avutike mpaka kalekale. Abulahamu ankadziwa kuti akamvera Yehova, Yehovayo adzamudalitsa komanso kudalitsa mwana wake. Koma kodi zinatheka bwanji kuti iye akhale ndi chikhulupiriro chimenechi?

6 Zimene anakumana nazo pa moyo wake. Kodi ndi zinthu ziti zimene zinathandiza Abulahamu kuti akhale ndi chikhulupiriro cholimba? Zinthu zimene munthu wadziwa zikamukhudza mtima, zimamupangitsa kuti achite zinazake. Choncho zimene Abulahamu anaphunzira zokhudza Mulungu zinachititsa kuti ayambe kukonda ndiponso kulemekeza kwambiri “Yehova Mulungu Wam’mwambamwamba, amene anapanga kumwamba ndi dziko lapansi.” (Gen. 14:22) Apa ndiye kuti Abulahamu anayamba “kuopa Mulungu” ndipo khalidweli  linamuthandiza kuti akhale naye pa ubwenzi wolimba ndiponso kuti azimumvera.—Aheb. 5:7; Sal. 25:14.

7 Mulungu anauza Abulahamu ndi Sara kuti achoke mumzinda wa Uri n’kupita kudziko lina. Kumeneko anayenera kumakhala m’mahema moyo wawo wonse. Koma Abulahamu anamvera ndipo izi zinachititsa kuti Mulungu azimuteteza komanso kumudalitsa.

8 Zimene tingaphunzire zokhudza Mulungu komanso zomwe tingakumane nazo pa moyo, zingatithandize kukhala pa ubwenzi wolimba ndi Yehova. Abulahamu ankangodziwa zinthu zochepa chabe zimene zili m’Baibulo, koma ifeyo tili ndi Baibulo lonse.

Zikatere timayamba kumumvera ndipo kenako timaona kuti zinthu zikutiyendera bwino. Timaonanso kuti amatidalitsa, kutipatsa mphamvu ndiponso malangizo ake amatiteteza. Timazindikira kuti tikamamutumikira ndi mtima wonse timakhala osangalala komanso ndi mtendere wamumtima. (Sal. 34:8; Miy. 10:22) Tikamaphunzirabe za Mulungu komanso kuona zimene akutichitira pa moyo wathu, timayamba kumukhulupirira kwambiri ndipo ubwenzi wathu ndi iye umalimba.

Kutatsala chaka chimodzi kuti Isaki abadwe ndipo Abulahamu ali ndi zaka 99, Yehova anamuuza kuti amuna onse a m’banja lake adulidwe. Kodi ananyinyirika  n’kuyamba kupeza njira zoti asachite zimene Yehova anamuuzazi? Ayi, koma anakhulupirira Mulungu ndipo anamvera “tsiku lomwelo.”—Gen. 17:10-14, 23.

Koma anafunsa modzichepetsa kwambiri komanso mosonyeza kuti ankakhulupirira zoti Mulungu ndi “Woweruza wa dziko lonse lapansi.” Yehova anayankha Abulahamu moleza mtima n’kumuthandiza kuona kuti iye ndi Mulungu wachifundo, amaona mumtima ndipo poweruza sangawononge anthu olungama.—Gen. 18:22-33.

12, 13. (a) Kodi zimene Abulahamu ankadziwa ndiponso zomwe anakumana nazo zinamuthandiza bwanji? (b) N’chiyani chikusonyeza kuti Abulahamu ankakhulupirira kwambiri Yehova?

Iye “anadziwa kuti Mulungu ali ndi mphamvu zomuukitsa [Isaki] kwa akufa.” Izi zikusonyeza kuti Abulahamu ankakhulupirira kuti akufa adzaukitsidwa. Paja Yehova anachititsa kuti iyeyo ndi Sara abereke mwana ngakhale kuti anali atakalamba kwambiri. (Aheb. 11:11, 12, 18) Abulahamu ankadziwa kuti palibe zimene Yehova sangakwanitse kuchita. Choncho sankakayikira kuti ngakhale atapereka mwana wakeyo nsembe, Yehova amuukitsa kuti akwaniritse zonse zimene analonjeza.

(Eks. 23:2; 1 Ates. 2:2) Kodi inunso nthawi zina mumaona kuti zimene Yehova akufuna kuti muchite ndi zovuta ngati zimene anauza Abulahamu? Ngati ndi choncho, nkhani ya Abulahamuyi ingakuthandizeni. Tikamaganizira kwambiri za chikhulupiriro cha anthu okhulupirika akale, tingayambe kuwatsanzira komanso kulimbitsa ubwenzi wathu ndi Yehova.—Aheb. 12:1, 2.
