3 Pali Akhristu ochepa amene akuyembekezera kulandira “cholowa chosawonongeka, chosadetsedwa ndiponso chosasuluka.” (1 Pet. 1:3, 4) Iwo akuyembekezera mwayi waukulu kwambiri wokalamulira limodzi ndi Khristu kumwamba. Kuti apeze madalitso amenewa, amafunika “kubadwanso.” (Yoh. 3:1-3) Palinso anthu mamiliyoni, amene ndi “nkhosa zina” za Yesu, omwe amathandiza odzozedwa pa ntchito yolalikira uthenga wa Ufumu wa Mulungu. (Yoh. 10:16) Nanga iwo akuyembekezera  zotani? Iwo adzalandira madalitso amene Adamu ndi Hava anataya chifukwa chochimwa. Adzalandira moyo wosatha m’paradaiso padziko lapansi ndipo sipadzakhalanso kuvutika, imfa ndiponso kulira. (Chiv. 21:1-4) N’chifukwa chake Yesu analonjeza munthu wochimwa amene anapachikidwa naye limodzi uja kuti: “Ndithu ndikukuuza lero, Iwe udzakhala ndi ine m’Paradaiso.”—Luka 23:43.

5. Kodi Satana wakhala akuyesetsa kuchita chiyani? Nanga tingatani kuti tisasunthike polimbana naye?

5 Koma tiyenera kusamala kuti Satana asatitayitse madalitso athu. Kuyambira kale, Satana wakhala akuyesetsa kuchititsa anthu a Mulungu kusankha zinthu zimene zingawatayitse madalitso awo.

Kuti ‘tisasunthike polimbana ndi zochita zachinyengo za Mdyerekezi,’ tiyenera kupitiriza kuyamikira kwambiri madalitso athu. (Aef. 6:11) Kodi pa nkhani imeneyi, tingaphunzire chiyani pa zimene Esau anachita? Tiyeni tione.

6, 7. Kodi Esau anali ndani ndipo anali ndi mwayi uti?

6 Pafupifupi zaka 4,000 zapitazo, Isaki ndi Rabeka anabereka mapasa. Mayina a anawa anali Esau ndi Yakobo ndipo anali osiyana makhalidwe komanso zochita. “Esau anakhala munthu wodziwa kusaka, munthu wokonda kuyenda m’tchire. Koma Yakobo anali kukhala nthawi yambiri m’mahema. Iye anali munthu wosalakwa.” (Gen. 25:27) Katswiri wina womasulira Baibulo ananena kuti mawu achiheberi amene anamasuliridwa kuti “wosalakwa” amatanthauza “wokhulupirika kapena wosachimwa.”

7 Pamene Esau ndi Yakobo anali ndi zaka 15, Abulahamu yemwe anali agogo awo anamwalira. Koma zimene Yehova analonjeza Abulahamuyo sizinathere pomwepo. Pa nthawi ina, Yehova anauzanso Isaki lonjezolo ndipo ananena kuti mitundu yonse ya padziko lapansi idzapeza madalitso kudzera mwa mbewu ya Abulahamu. (Werengani Genesis 26:3-5.) Lonjezoli linasonyeza kuti Mesiya, yemwe ndi “mbewu” yokhulupirika imene inatchulidwa pa Genesis 3:15, adzabadwa m’banja la Abulahamu. Popeza kuti Esau anali woyamba kubadwa, iye anali woyenera kulandira madalitso a lonjezo limeneli. Apatu iye anali ndi mwayi waukulu kwambiri. Koma kodi Esau anayamikira mwayiwu?

Ndatopatu ine!” Poyankha, Yakobo anauza Esau kuti: “Choyamba, undigulitse ukulu wako monga woyamba kubadwa.” Kodi Esau anasankha kuchita chiyani? Mukhoza kudabwa mutamva yankho lake. Iye anati: “Ndiye ukuluwo uli ndi phindu lanji kwa ine?” Esau anasankha kusinthanitsa ukulu wake ndi mbale imodzi ya mphodza basi. Kuti Yakobo atenge ukuluwo m’njira yovomerezeka,  anati: “Choyamba lumbira kwa ine!” Ndiyeno Esau anapereka ukuluwo nthawi yomweyo. Zitatero, “Yakobo anapatsa Esau mkate ndi mphodza, ndipo iye anadya n’kumwa. Kenako, ananyamuka n’kumapita. Umu ndi mmene Esau ananyozera ukulu wake.”—Gen. 25:29-34.

Esau anazindikira mochedwa kuti sanasankhe mwanzeru. Iye anachonderera Isaki kuti: “Bambo ndidalitseni, ndidalitseni inenso chonde! . . . Kodi bambo, zoona palibiretu dalitso lililonse limene mwandisungirako?” Isaki atanena kuti sangasinthe madalitso amene wapereka kwa Yakobo, Esau “analira mofuula kwambiri, misozi ili mbwembwembwe.”—Gen. 27:30-38.

10. Kodi Yehova ankaona bwanji Esau ndi Yakobo ndipo n’chifukwa chiyani?

10 Malinga ndi zimene Malemba amanena, kodi Esau anali munthu wotani? Iye anasonyeza kuti zimene ankalakalaka zinali zofunika kwambiri kuposa madalitso amene akanalandira m’tsogolo. Esau sankaona kuti ukulu wake ndi wofunika kwambiri komanso zikuoneka kuti sankakonda kwenikweni Mulungu. Sanaganizirenso mmene zochita zake zingakhudzire ana ake. Koma Yakobo ankaona kuti madalitso ochokera kwa Mulungu ndi ofunika kwambiri. Mwachitsanzo, iye anatsatira malangizo a makolo ake posankha mkazi. (Gen. 27:46–28:3) Kuti achite zimenezi, analeza mtima ndiponso kupirira mavuto ena. Koma kenako anadzakhala kholo la Mesiya. Kodi Yehova ankaona bwanji Esau ndi Yakobo? Kudzera mwa mneneri Malaki, Yehova anati: ‘Ndinakonda Yakobo koma Esau ndinadana naye.’—Mal. 1:2, 3.

11. (a) Kodi Akhristufe tingaphunzire chiyani pa nkhani ya Esau? (b) N’chifukwa chiyani Paulo anayerekezera zimene Esau anachita ndi dama?

Kodi ndikhoza kukhumudwitsa ena?’ (Afil. 1:10) Tingadzifunsenso kuti: ‘Kodi ndingachite bwino kusankha kungosangalala pa nthawi yochepa koma n’kudzapeza mavuto ambirimbiri? Kodi ndikufuna kukhala ngati Esau yemwe analira momvetsa chisoni atazindikira kuti sanasankhe bwino?’ (Aheb. 12:17) Kuganizira mafunso ngati amenewa kungatithandize kuti ‘tizinyansidwa ndi choipa, n’kugwiritsitsa chabwino.’ (Aroma 12:9) Kukonda Yehova n’kumene kungatithandize kwambiri kuti tisataye madalitso athu.—Sal. 73:28.
