 KUCHINJWA KWAKAITWA UPENYU HWANGU NEBHAIBHERI

Muna 1957, ndakakokwa kugungano reZvapupu zvaJehovha raiitirwa mustadium yandakambotambira baseball. Pandakaendako, ndakafarira kudzikama kwaiva kwakaita Zvapupu. Painge pasina ruzha serwaiitwa vanhu pavaitamba baseball. Izvi zvakaita kuti nditange kudzidza Bhaibheri neZvapupu, ndichibva ndatanga kupinda misangano yavo.

Zvinhu zvakawanda zvandakadzidza muBhaibheri ndakazvifarira. Chimwe chandakaona ndezvakataurwa naJesu paakati mumazuva ekupedzisira, vadzidzi vake vaizoparidza mashoko akanaka eUmambo hwaMwari pasi rose. (Mateu 24:14) Ndakadzidzawo kuti vaKristu vechokwadi havaiti basa rekuparidza vachiitira kuti vawane mari. Jesu akati: “Makagamuchira pachena, ipai pachena.”—Mateu 10:8.

Pandaidzidza Bhaibheri, ndaienzanisa zvarinotaura nezvandaiona zvichiitwa neZvapupu zvaJehovha. Ndaiyemura kushanda nesimba kwavaiita vachiparidza mashoko akanaka eUmambo hwaMwari pasi rose. Jesu akataura kuti vaKristu vanofanira kuva nerupo, uye ndizvo chaizvo zvinoitwa neZvapupu. Saka pandakaverenga Mako 10:21 ndichibva ndaona mashoko aJesu ekuti ‘Uya uve muteveri wangu,’ ndakabva ndada kuva Chapupu.

Asi zvakanditorera nguva kuti ndiite zvaienderana nezvandaidzidza muBhaibheri. Semuenzaniso, ndakanga ndava nemakore ndichitamba lotto, uye ndaiva nenhamba dzandaigara ndichidzokorora vhiki nevhiki ndichiti ndichaita mhanza. Asi ndakadzidza kuti Mwari anovenga vanhu vanonamata “mwari weMhanza Yakanaka,” uye vane makaro. (Isaya 65:11; VaKorose 3:5) Saka ndakabva ndasiya zvekubheja. Vhiki iroro, nhamba dziya dzandaibheja ndidzo dzakahwinha! Vanhu vakandishora nekuti vhiki iroro ndainge ndisina kubheja, uye vakandimanikidza kuti ndisasiya zvekubheja asi ndakaramba. Handina kuzombobvira ndaita zvekubheja zvekare.

Musi wandakabhabhatidzwa seChapupu chaJehovha, ndakasangana nemuedzo waida kuti ndiratidze ‘unhu hwangu hutsva.’ (VaEfeso 4:24) Manheru iwayo, ndakadzokera kuhotera kwandakanga ndichigara ndichibva ndaona musikana wandakambodanana naye akandimirira padhoo remandaigara. Akati: “Sammy shaa, ngatimbofarei nhasi!” Ipapo ipapo ndakabva ndamuti, “Handisi kuda!” Ndakamuyeuchidza kuti ndakanga ndava kuita zvinodiwa naMwari.

Ndakapinda mandaigara, ndichibva ndamukiyira dhoo panze. Ndiri kufara kuti kubva musi wandakava Chapupu muna 1958, handina kuzombodzokerazve kumararamiro andaiita.
