Pomwe gwere Lacikristau lidakhazikisidwa, ateweri wa Jezu adabvera lamulo lakuti ‘ambatsonkhane pabodzi.’ (Mabasa 2:42) Mwakusaya kupenukira imwepo mumbafunambo kugumanika pa mitsonkhano mwakukhazikika. Tsono, Akristau wense ambagumana na mabvuto. Basa, kutanganidwa ayai kuneta thangwe ra bzakucitika bza nsiku na nsiku bzingatitazise kutsonkhana. Kodi n’ciyani cingatithandize kukunda mabvutoya ticikhala na ndandanda yabwino yakumbagumanika pa mitsonkhano? [1] Kodi tingathandize tani anyakupfunza wathu wa Bibliya pabodzi na winango kuti awone kufunika kwa kumbagumanika pa mitsonkhano? Mu nkhani ino tin’cezerana bzinthu bzisere bzakufotokoza thangwe race timbatsonkhana kuti tinamate. Bzinthu bzimwebzi tingabzigawe m’magulu matatu: momwe mumbatokonyedwera, momwe winango ambatokonyedwera, na momwe Yahova ambatokonyedwera mukambagumanika pa mitsonkhano. [2]

Kodi si cadidi kuti kupfunza bza makhalidwe ya Mulungu, pabodzi na mitawiro ya abale wathu, bzimbalimbisa lufoyi lanu kwa Baba wanu wakudzulu? Ifepano timbathumizirambo cidziwiso cathu ca m’Fala la Mulungu mwa kubvesera na tceru nkhani, bziratizo pabodzi na kuwerenga Bibliya.

5. Kodi kugumanika pa mitsonkhano kwakuthandizani tani kuphatisa basa bzomwe mudapfunza m’Bibliya na kucinja njira zanu zakapaliziridwe?

5 Mitsonkhano imbatithandiza kuphatisa basa mitemo ya m’Bibliya pa mbali iri-yense ya moyo wathu.

Kodi Pfunziro la Nsanza ya Mulindiri lidakuthandizani kuwona kufunika kwa kulekerera Mkristau mwanzanu, ayai kucinja kapembedwe kanu?

7 Mitsonkhano imbaticitisa kuti titsogoledwe na mzimu wakucena.

Ifepano timbafunika mzimu wakucena kuti  utithandize kulimbika pa mapumpso, utilimbise na kutikonzekeresa kucita utumiki, na kucita bzakusankhula bzabwino.

8 Mitsonkhano imbatipasa mpata wakulatiza lufoyi kwa abale wathu. Kumbukirani bza mabvuto yomwe abale winango wa m’gwere mwanu ankugumana nayo. N’thangwe race mpostolo Paulo adanemba kuti: ‘Bwerani timbakumbukirane winango na mwanzace’! Paulo akhathandauza kuti tingalatize kukumbukiranaku mwa kusaya kuleka ‘kutsonkhana kwathu pabodzi.’ (Waheb. 10:24, 25) Kugumanika kwanu pa mitsonkhano kumbalatiza kuti imwepo mumbawona Akristau anzanu kuti mbakufunikira nthawe yanu, tceru lanu na thupo lanu. Kuthumizira bzimwebzi, mitawiro yanu yakuphata mtima na kuimba bzimbalimbisa Mboni zinzanu.—Wakol. 3:16.

9 Mitsonkhano imbaticitisa kukhala wakuphatana na Akristau anzathu. (Werengani Juwau 10:16.) Jezu adabzindendemeza na m’busa ndipo ateweri wace ninga thimu la mabira. Tsono tilewe kuti, mabira mawiri yali pa phiri, yanango mawiri yali m’cigwa, ndipo bira munango m’bodzi ankudya pa mbuto inango, kodi tingalewe kuti mabira maxanuya ni thimu libodzi? Kulewa cadidi, thimu la mabira limbakhala pabodzi pomwe linkuusidwa. Mpsibodzi-bodzimbo, tingakwanise lini kutewera m’Busa wathu penu timbabzipambula. Tin’funika kumbatsonkhana pabodzi na Akristau winango kuti tikhale mbali ya ‘thimu libodzi’ lakutsogoledwa na ‘m’busa m’bodzi.’

10 Pomwe timbagumanika pa mitsonkhano, timbathandiza ciphatano cathu ca gulu lense la abale. (Psal. 133:1) Akristau anzathu winango adalambidwa na abereki wawo pabodzi na abale wawo. Tsono, Jezu adapicira kuti iye angadawapasa banja lauzimu lomwe lingadawafuna na kuwasamalira. (Mar. 10:29, 30) Pomwe munkutsonkhana mwakukhazikika, imwepo mun’dzakhala baba, mai, m’bale, ayai mpfumakazi ya m’bodzi wa Akristau amwewa! Kodi bzimwebzi bzimbatilimbisa lini kuti timbagumanike pa mitsonkhano yense?

11 Kugumanika kwathu pa mitsonkhano kumbapasa  Yahova comwe iye an’themera. Ninga Mulengi wathu, Yahova adathemera kutumbizidwa, kupasidwa umbiri, kutendedwa na kulemekezedwa. (Werengani Cibvumbulutso 7:12.) Pomwe tinkupemba, kuimba na kulewalewa bza Yahova pa mitsonkhano yathu, timbakhala tinkumupasa cinthu comwe iye an’themera—kunamata kwathu. Ifepano timbatenda kwene-kwene mwayi wakulemekeza Ule omwe adaticitira bzinthu bzizinji.

(Zai. 30:20, 21) Napo anyakusaya kukhulupira womwe ambabwera pa mitsonkhano yathu angatsimikize kuti: ‘Mulungu alidi pakati panu.’ (1 Wak. 14:23-25) Yahova ambasimba mitsonkhano yathu na mzimu wakucena ndipo ambatsogolera ndondomeko ya kupfunza Bibliya. Pomwe tiri pa mitsonkhano yathu, timbabvesera fala la Yahova na kuwona cisamaliro cace ca lufoyi. Tenepo, timbafendera kwa iye.

14 Jezu adati: ‘Pali-pense pomwe an’tsonkhana awiri ayai atatu m’dzina langu, ine ndin’khala ndiri pakati pawo.’ (Mat. 18:20) Pakuyambirira mafala ya Jezuya, yambaphata basa pa mitsonkhano yathu. Ninga msolo wa gwere, Kristu ‘ankufamba pakati’ pa magwere ya wanthu wa Mulungu. (Cibv. 1:20–2:1) Kukumbukani bzimwebzi! Yahova na Jezu ambatenga mbali kutilimbisa pa mitsonkhano Yacikristau. Kodi munkumbuka kuti Yahova ambabva tani akawona nyongo yathu yakuti timufenderere iye pabodzi na Mwana wace?

(War. 6:17) Mwa ciratizo, patrau angatingingimize kuti timbaluze mitsonkhano thangwe ra basa. Boma lingatitsutse, licitigopswa kuti tin’dzalipira kobiri zizinji, tin’dzamangidwa, ayai kucitiridwa cinthu cinango cakuipa tikambatsonkhana kuti tinamate. Ayai tingayezedwe kuti tikacite masenzeka m’mbuto mwa kuyenda ku mitsonkhano. Pa bzakucitika ninga bzimwebzi, timbafunika kusankhula: Kodi mbani omwe tin’dzatumikira? (Mab. 5:29) Tikasankhula kuthandiza utongi bwa Yahova, timbakondwesa mtima wace.—Mim. 27:11.

16 Akristau wakuyambirira alibe kundotsonkhana pa nthawe yomwe padacitika bzakudabwisa pa Pentekosite mu 33 EC. ‘Iwo adapitiriza kutetekera bzomwe apostolowo akhawapfunzisa kuti ambatsonkhane pabodzi.’ (Mab. 2:42) M’cigirego, fala lomwe lasanduliziridwa kuti ‘adapitiriza kutetekera’ limbathandauza kucita cinthu mwa kupirira ndipo na nyongo. Bzikhali lini bzakupusa kwa Akristauwa kumbatsonkhana  pakuti akhali pansi pa utongi bwa Roma ndipo akhatsutsidwambo na atsogoleri wacipembedzo Wacijuda. Koma iwo adapirira.

17 Atumiki wa Yahova azinji wa nsiku zino, ambawona mitsonkhano Yacikristau kukhala yakufunika kwene-kwene. George Gangas, omwe adatumikira m’Bungwe Lakutonga kwa magole yakuposa 22, adati: “Kwa inepano, kutsonkhana na abale n’cinthu cakukondwesa ndipo ni nsansa ya cirimbiso. Bzikakwanisika, ndimbafuna kukhala pakati pa wanthu wakuyamba kufika pa Nyumba ya Umambo, na kukhala pakati pa wakumalizira kucoka. Ndimbakondwa mu mtima mwangu ndikambaceza na wanthu wa Mulungu. Pomwe ndiri pakati pawo ndimbabzibva ndiri pa mui na banja langu, m’paraizo wauzimu.” Iye adathumizira kuti: “Ninga busula yomwe nthawe zense imbalata ku mpoto, kwa inepano makumbukidwe na cikhumbo cangu ni kugumanika pa mitsonkhano.”

18 Kodi mumbabvambo bzibodzi-bodzi pa nkhani ya kutsonkhana kuti munamate Yahova? Khalani wakutsimikiza kupirira mucicita nyongo kuti mumbatsonkhane mwakukhazikika. Tenepo imwepo mun’dzalatiza kuti munkutawiriza Mambo Davide, omwe adalewa kuti: ‘Yahova, ndimbafuna nyumba yomwe imwepo mumbakhala.’—Psal. 26:8.

Iwo angakhale wakutsimikiza kuti Yahova ambabvesesa mabvuto yawo ndipo ambatenda kwene-kwene nyongo yawo ya kumunamata.
