8 Tinofanira kunamata Jehovha chete.

(Verenga Johani 17:6.) Jesu akati: “Jehovha Mwari wako ndiye waunofanira kunamata, uye ndiye ega waunofanira kuitira basa dzvene.” (Mateu 4:10) Saka sevashumiri vaMwari, tinotevedzera Jesu.

Kudanana kwedu kunofanira kutibatanidza sehama nehanzvadzi. (VaKorose 3:14) Saka hatiendi kuhondo uye hatiurayi.

Bhaibheri rinoti: “Hapana mumwe angaponesa vanhu, nekuti hapana rimwe zita pasi pedenga rakapiwa vanhu ratinofanira kuponeswa naro.” (Mabasa 4:12) MuChitsauko 5 chebhuku rino, takadzidza kuti Jehovha akatuma Jesu kuti ape upenyu hwake kuti adzikinure vanhu vanoteerera. (Mateu 20:28) Jehovha akasarudza Jesu kuti atonge saMambo wenyika ino. Ndokusaka Bhaibheri richiti tinofanira kuteerera Jesu kana tichida kurarama nekusingaperi.—Verenga Johani 3:36.

Paaitongwa, akaudza mutongi weRoma, Pirato, kuti: “Umambo hwangu hahusi hwenyika ino.” (Verenga Johani 18:36.) Isu tinotevedzera Jesu pakuva vakavimbika kuUmambo hwaMwari hwekudenga, saka pasinei nekwatinogara, hatipindiri mune zvematongerwo enyika. Asi Bhaibheri rinotiudza kuti titeerere “vanhu vane masimba,” kureva hurumende. (VaRoma 13:1) Tinoteerera mitemo yemunyika matinogara. Asi kana mumwe mutemo uchipesana nemitemo yaMwari, tinotevedzera  vaapostora, avo vakati: “Tinofanira kuteerera Mwari semutongi panzvimbo pevanhu.”—Mabasa 5:29; Mako 12:17.

15 Hazvina kukwana kungotenda kuti Mwari ariko. Kunyange madhimoni anotenda kuti Mwari ariko, asi haamuteereri. (Jakobho 2:19) Kana tichida kuti Mwari agamuchire  kunamata kwedu, hatifaniri kungogumira pakutenda kuti ariko asi tinofanirawo kuita zvaanotaura.

16. Nei tichifanira kusiyana nekunamata kwenhema?

17 Chii chinonzi chitendero chenhema? Ichi chitendero chipi zvacho chinodzidzisa kuti tinamate nenzira inopesana neShoko raMwari.

Idzodzo inhema.—Ona Mamwe Mashoko 13, uye 16.
