Stap Gut Long Bilip Maski Ol Manmeri i Brukim Lain

“Ol samting bilong God, givim long God.”—MAT. 22:21.

OL SINGSING: 33, 137

1. Olsem wanem yumi inap daun long tok bilong God na ol gavman?

BAIBEL i tok yumi mas bihainim tok bilong ol gavman. Tasol Baibel i tok tu olsem yumi mas bihainim tok bilong God, na i no bilong ol man. (Apo. 5:29; Tai. 3:1) Yu ting dispela 2-pela tok i pait? Nogat tru! Baibel i kamapim stiatok bilong kliaim tingting bilong yumi. Jisas i kamapim bikpela poin bilong dispela stiatok taim em i tok: “Ol samting bilong Sisar, givim long Sisar, na ol samting bilong God, givim long God.” [1] (Mat. 22:21) Hau yumi inap bihainim dispela tok bilong Jisas? Yumi stap daun long ol gavman taim yumi bihainim ol lo bilong en, rispektim ol bikman bilong en, na baim takis. (Rom 13:7) Tasol taim ol bikman bilong gavman i tokim yumi long mekim ol samting i brukim lo bilong God, orait yumi mas bihainim pasin rispek na tok nogat long bihainim tok bilong ol.

2. Hau yumi inap soim olsem yumi no insait long ol wok politik bilong dispela graun?

2 Taim yumi yet i no insait long wok politik bilong dispela graun, dispela i kain olsem yumi givim ol samting bilong God i go bek long God. (Ais. 2:4) Yumi no birua long ol gavman em Jehova i larim ol long mekim wok, na tu, yumi no litimapim nem bilong wanpela lain  o kantri. (Rom 13:1, 2) Yumi no save stiaim tingting bilong ol bikman bilong gavman, vot long eleksen, sanap long eleksen, o mekim ol samting bilong senisim gavman.

3. Bilong wanem yumi no ken insait long ol wok politik na ol woa?

3 Baibel i kamapim sampela risen na God i laik bai yumi no insait long wok politik samting bilong dispela graun. Olsem, yumi bihainim tok na eksampel bilong Pikinini bilong em Jisas Krais taim yumi mekim ol samting i soim olsem yumi “no bilong dispela graun,” na yumi sakim ol wok politik na ol woa. (Jon 6:15; 17:16) Sapos yumi laik stap daun long Kingdom bilong God, orait yumi mas sakim ol wok politik na woa. Tasol hau yumi inap i gat klinpela maus bilong bel taim yumi autim gutnius olsem Kingdom Bilong God tasol bai pinisim ol hevi? Yumi no ken bihainim pasin bilong ol lotu giaman, em ol i save insait long ol wok politik na brukim lain. Lotu i tru i lukautim yumi olgeta bratasista long pas gut wantaim na yumi no insait long ol wok politik na ol woa.—1 Pita 2:17.

4. (a) Hau yumi save olsem pasin bilong ol man long birua long yumi bai i go bikpela moa? (b) Bilong wanem yumi mas redi long nau bambai yumi stap gut long bilip?

4 Ating long hap yumi stap long en, wok politik i no strong tumas na em i isi long mekim lotu i tru. Klostu nau ol wok nogut bilong Satan bai pinis, olsem na ol man bai birua long yumi taim yumi no insait long ol wok politik na ol woa. Dispela graun i pulap long ol manmeri husat “i no laik kamap wanbel” na ol i gat “strongpela het,” olsem na pasin bilong brukim lain bai i go bikpela moa. (2 Tim. 3:3, 4) Long sampela kantri, wok politik i go bikpela moa na ol man i birua long ol bratasista bikos ol i no laik insait long ol dispela samting. Olsem wanem? Yu luksave olsem em i bikpela samting long yumi mas strongim bilip bilong yumi long nau bambai yumi ken stap gut long bilip long taim bilong traim? Sapos yumi no strongim bilip bilong yumi long nau, yumi inap insait long ol wok politik na ol pait, na dispela bai bagarapim pasin bilong yumi long sanap strong long bilip. Hau yumi inap redim yumi yet long stap gut long bilip long dispela taim nogut i gat pasin bilong brukim lain? Yumi ken skelim 4-pela bikpela samting we bai helpim yumi long mekim olsem.

HOLIM WANKAIN TINGTING OLSEM JEHOVA LONG OL GAVMAN

5. Jehova i gat wanem tingting long ol gavman bilong graun?

5 Namba 1 samting inap helpim yumi long stap gut long bilip em olsem, tingting yumi holim long ol gavman i mas wankain olsem tingting bilong Jehova. Maski sampela gavman i bihainim stretpela pasin, pasin bilong man long bosim narapela, dispela em i no laik na tingting bilong Jehova. (Jer. 10:23) Ol gavman bilong graun i save litimapim kantri bilong ol yet, dispela i mekim na olgeta manmeri bilong graun i no stap wanbel wantaim. Maski wanpela lida long gavman i gat gutpela pasin, em i no inap pinisim ol hevi. Na tu, kirap long 1914, ol gavman bilong graun i stap olsem birua bilong Kingdom Bilong God, em dispela gavman we bai bagarapim ol gavman bilong graun.—Ritim Song 2:2, 7-9.

6. Yumi mas mekim wanem ol gutpela pasin long ol man i gat namba long gavman?

6 God i larim ol gavman i stap bikos yumi inap kisim helpim long ol na autim yet gutnius bilong Kingdom. (Rom 13:3, 4) God i tokim yumi long beten long em i ken stiaim ol man i gat namba sapos disisen ol i mekim inap helpim o nogutim lotu i tru. (1 Tim. 2:1, 2) Yumi save apil long ol bikman bilong gavman long mekim stretpela kot, wankain olsem aposel Pol i bin mekim. (Apo. 25:11) Em tru olsem Baibel i tok Satan em i papa bilong ol gavman bilong graun, tasol Baibel i no tok olsem Satan i kontrolim olgeta wan wan lida o bikman insait gavman. (Luk 4:5, 6) Olsem na yumi no ken holim tingting olsem Satan i save kontrolim olgeta wan wan lida o bikman  insait long gavman. Olsem na taim yumi toktok long ol “gavman na long ol man i gat namba,” yumi “no ken mekim tok nogut long wanpela man.”—Tai. 3:1, 2.

7. Yumi mas abrusim wanem kain tingting?

7 Sapos yumi no sapotim wanpela kendidet, wanpela pati, o wanpela gavman maski ol i sapotim yumi o nogat, dispela i soim olsem yumi daun long God. Wai dispela inap traim bilip bilong yumi? Sapos ol man i laik rausim gavman we i save bagarapim ol manmeri bilong God, yumi no ken insait wantaim ol manmeri husat i protes. Maski i olsem, yumi mas was gut. Ating long bel yumi inap sapotim ol long ol samting ol i mekim long dispela gavman. (Efe. 2:2) Yumi mas stap gut long bilip long sait bilong toktok, pasin, na bel bilong yumi.

“WAS GUT” NA “NO GAT ASUA”

8. Hau yumi inap soim olsem yumi “was gut” na yumi “no gat asua” taim hevi i kamap na i hatwok long stap gut long bilip?

8 Namba 2 samting inap helpim yumi long stap gut long bilip em olsem, long taim bilong hevi, yumi mas “was gut olsem ol snek, na long seim taim [yumi] mas stap olsem ol pisin balus em ol i no gat asua long wanpela samting.” (Ritim Matyu 10:16, 17.) Yumi soim olsem yumi was gut taim yumi luksave long ol hevi paslain long ol i kamap, na yumi bai no gat asua taim yumi no insait long ol dispela hevi. Tingim ol hevi we inap kamap bihain na hau yumi inap karim ol dispela hevi.

9. Yumi mas was gut long wanem samting taim yumi toktok wantaim ol arapela?

9 Ol toktok. Yumi mas was gut taim tok pait i kamap long wok politik. Olsem, taim yumi autim tok bilong Kingdom, yumi no ken litimapim o bagarapim lo bilong wanpela gavman o lida bilong gavman. Stori long man bilong haus long risen na ol hevi i wok long kamap na no ken strongim tok bilong wanpela gavman long kamapim gutpela samting. Bihain yu ken soim ol tok bilong Baibel long em bambai em i ken luksave olsem gavman bilong God tasol bai pinisim ol hevi. Sapos tok pait i kamap long pasin bilong man i maritim man, o pasin bilong rausim bel, orait sapotim lo bilong God na eksplenim long man long hau yumi save bihainim ol dispela lo long laip bilong yumi. Taim yu stori long man, no ken mekim wanpela tok we inap mekim dispela man i pilim olsem yu sapotim wanpela lo bilong gavman long dispela samting. Yumi no gat wok long makim wanem lo em ol man i mas bihainim, o rausim, o senisim. Yumi no laik fosim ol narapela long wanbel long tingting bilong yumi.

10. Hau yumi inap stap gut long bilip taim yumi watsim TV o harim redo na ritim niuspepa?

10 Redio, TV na Niuspepa. Planti taim ol stori i kamap long nius i sapotim wanpela lain tasol, na ol i save strong olsem dispela stori em tru. Sampela taim redio, TV, na niuspepa i stap olsem tul bilong wok politik. Ating sampela taim nius ripot i kamap long redio, TV o niuspepa bilong gavman na i sapotim narapela lain na daunim narapela. Olsem na ol Kristen i stap long ol kantri i gat fridom long mekim kain tok olsem, ol i mas was gut bambai ol i no bihainim kain pasin olsem. Askim yu yet, ‘Mi save amamas long harim tok bilong wanpela man long redio, TV o niuspepa na mi wanbel long ol tingting bilong em?’ Sapos olsem, ating bai yu laik kisim sampela save moa long tok bilong em. Em i gutpela sapos yu no kisim planti infomesen tumas long rot bilong redio, TV na niuspepa em ol i toktok planti long wok politik. Na tu, no ken skelim ol dispela tok wantaim “astingting bilong ol gutpela tok” i stap long Baibel.—2 Tim. 1:13.

11. Olsem wanem mani kago inap mekim na i hatwok long yumi stap gut long bilip?

Sampela i bin go wantaim mipela long kalabus, tasol bihain ol i joinim wok politik na ol i go bek long ples.

12, 13. (a) Jehova i gat wanem tingting long ol manmeri bilong graun? (b) Hau yumi inap save olsem yumi gat pasin bilong litimapim kantri?

Tasol yumi save olsem dispela pasin inap mekim na Jehova i holim wankain tingting long yumi olsem em i tingim ol gavman na ol manmeri bilong dispela graun.

Tasol yumi mas tingim olsem long ai bilong God, olgeta manmeri i wankain.—Rom 10:12.

(Apo. 6:1) Hau yumi inap luksave olsem yumi wok long kisim pasin antap? Sapos wanpela brata o sista bilong narapela kantri i givim yu sampela tingting.
