Pambuyo pace mulumbwanayo ankupandukira babaceyo, ndipo ankucoka pamuipo. Pambuyo pakucoka, iye ankucita bzinthu bzakuipa ndipo ankugumana na mabvuto makulu. Kodi mungalewe kuti babaceyo, ndiye ankucitisa mabvuto ya mwanaceyo pakuti adamulekerera kucoka pamuipo? Neeletu! (Luka 15:11-13) Mwakundendemerana na babayo, Mulungu alibe kuletsa wanthu kusankhula kumupandukira na kucita bzinthu bzakuipa. Tenepo, bzikacitika bzinthu bzakuipa, timbakumbukire kuti ni Mulungu lini omwe wabzicitisa. Kungakhale kusaya cirungamo kupasa mulandu Mulungu.

Bibliya limbapfunzisa kuti Mulungu ‘ambafuna cirungamo.’ (Psalymo 37:28) Tenepo iye ambacita thupo na bzinthu bzakuipa bzomwe bzimbacitika. Ndipo iye ambaipidwa kuwona wanthu ankubonera. Bibliya limbalewa kuti iye ‘adawawidwa kwene-kwene mu mtima mwace’ pomwe dziko likhadadzala na uipi. (Ciyambo 6:5, 6) Mulungu alibe kucinja.

Tenepo penu imwepo mumbawawidwa mukawona wanthu wakusaya kuphonya ankubonera, dziwani kuti Mulungu ambawawidwa kwene-kwene kuposa imwepo! Kodi tinkudziwa tani bzimwebzi?

Kumbukirani ibzi: Mungadakhala na mphanvu, kodi imwepo mungadamalisa lini kubonera kwense na kusaya cirungamo komwe kuli pansi pano? Mpsakudziwikiratu kuti mungadamalisa pakuti imwepo  mumbafuna wanthu. Tsono tani Mulungu? Iye ana mphanvu ndipo pakuti iye ambatifuna, iye an’dzamalisa mabvuto yenseneya. Khulupirani kuti mapiciro yomwe yali kumayambiriro kwa bukhuli, yan’dzakwanisika! Tsono kuti mukwanise kukhulupira mapiciroya, imwepo mun’funika kudziwa bzizinji pakulewa bza Mulungu.

Bzipembedzo bzizinji bzimbalewa kuti dzina lace ni Mulungu ayai Mbuya, tsono yamweya ni madzina ya ulemu, ninga yakuti “mambo” ayai “prezidenti.” Mulungu ambatiuza kuti dzina lace ni Yahova. Pa Psalymo 83:18 pambati: ‘Kuti wanthu adziwe kuti imwepo dzina lanu ndimwe Yahova, ndimwe mwekha Mkululetu pa dziko lense la pansi.’ Anyakunemba Bibliya adaphatisa basa dzina la Mulungu ulendo bzulu na bzulu. Yahova an’funa kuti imwepo mudziwe dzina lace muciriphatisa basa. Iye ankukuuzani dzina lace kuti imwepo mukhale xamwali wace.

16, 17. Kodi ndiponi thandauzo la madzina ya ulemu aya: (a)‘Wamphanvu zense’? (b) ‘Mambo wa nthawe zense’? (c) ‘Mulengi’?

16 Pa Cibvumbulutso 15:3 pambati: ‘Mabasa yanu n’makulu ndipo njakudabwisa, imwe Yahova Mulungu  Wamphanvu zense. Njira zanu n’zakulungama na zacadidi, imwe Mambo wa nthawe zense.’ Kodi dzina la ulemu lakuti ‘Wamphanvu zense’ limbathandauza ciyani? Limbathandauza kuti Yahova ngwamphanvu kwene-kwene kuposa ali-wense m’cirengedwe cense. Ndipo dzina la ulemu lakuti ‘Mambo wa nthawe zense’ limbathandauza kuti Yahova alipo kuyambira kale-kale. Ndipopa pa Psalymo 90:2 pambafotokoza kuti iye alipo kuyambira kale-kale mpaka kale-kale. Kodi bzimwebzi mpsakudabwisa lini?

17 Yahova yekha ndiye Mulengi. Pa Cibvumbulutso 4:11 pambati: ‘Ndimwe wakuthemera Yahova, inde, Mulungu wathu, kupasidwa mbiri, ulemu na mphanvu, thangwe ndimwe mudalenga bzinthu bzense, ndipo mwa kufuna kwanu bzidawoneka ndipo bzidalengedwa.’ Inde kuyambira wanjo kudzulu, nyenyezi, miti ya bzisapo mpaka nsomba za m’madzi—ni Yahova omwe adalenga bzense bzomwe imwepo mumbawona!

 MOMWE MUNGAKHALIRE XAMWALI WA YAHOVA

Ne. Yahova an’funa kuti tikhale naye pa uxamwali. Ndipo Bibliya limbalewa kuti Mulungu ‘ali lini kutali na m’bodzi na m’bodzi wa ifepano.’ (Mabasa 17:27) Mulungu an’funa kuti mumufenderere, ndipo iye ambapicira kuti ‘an’dzakufendereranimbo.’—Tiyago 4:8.

19. (a) Kodi mungakhale tani xamwali wa Mulungu? (b) Kodi ni makhalidwe yaponi ya Yahova yomwe imwepo mumbakomedwa nayo?

Mwa ciratizo, tapfunza kale kuti ‘Mulungu ni lufoyi.’ (1 Juwau 4:16) Iye ana makhalidwe manango mazinji yabwino. Bibliya limbatiuza kuti Yahova ‘ngwansisi ndipo ambafulumiza lini kukalipa; iye ngwakudzala na kudeka mtima pabodzi na cadidi.’ (Kufuluka 34:6) Yahova ‘ngwabwino ndipo ngwakukonzeka kulekerera.’ (Psalymo 86:5) Mulungu ngwakupirira na wakukhulupirika. (2 Pedru 3:9; Cibvumbulutso 15:4) Mukambawerenga Bibliya, imwepo mun’dzapfunza bzizinji pakulewa bza makhalidwe yace yabwinoya.

20, 21. Kodi tingamufenderere tani Mulungu napo tinati kumuwona?

20 Kodi mungamufenderere tani Mulungu napo munati kumuwona? (Juwau 1:18; 4:24; 1 Timotio 1:17) Mukambawerenga bza Yahova m’Bibliya, imwepo mun’dzafika  pakumudziwa ninga munthu caiye. (Psalymo 27:4; Waroma 1:20) Mukapitiriza kupfunza bza Yahova, mun’dzafika pakumufuna kwene-kwene, ndipo bzimwebzi bzin’dzakucitisani kumufenderera.

Baba ambafuna wana wace, tsono Baba wathu wakudzulu ambatifuna kuposa baba ali-wense

21 Mun’dzazindikira kuti Yahova ni Baba wathu. (Mateu 6:9) Iye adatipasa moyo ndipo an’funa kuti tikhale na moyo wabwino. Bzimwebzi ndibzo bzomwe baba wa lufoyi angafune kwa wana wace. (Psalymo 36:9) Inde, Bibliya limbapfunzisa kuti imwepo mungakhale xamwali wa Mulungu. (Tiyago 2:23) Ndokumbukirani. Yahova, omwe ni Mulengi wa cirengedwe cense an’funa kuti imwepo mukhale xamwali wace.

Jezu adalewa kuti tin’funika kukhala wakubzicepswa ninga wana ang’ono. (Mateu 18:2-4) Ndipo wana ambacita mibvunzo mizinji. Mulungu an’funa kuti imwepo mugumane mitawiro. Tenepo, pfunzani Bibliya mwakusamala na cakulinga cakuti mutsimikize kuti bzomwe munkupfunzabzo mpsacadidi.—Werengani Mabasa 17:11.
