“Masingayeki ukwenza okuhle.”—GAL. 6:9.

1, 2. Ukucabanga ngenhlangano kaJehova yendawo yonke kukuqinisa kanjani ukuyethemba kwethu?

KUSENZA sikhexe ukucabanga ukuthi siyingxenye yenhlangano enkulu yendawo yonke. Imibono elotshwe kuHezekeli isahluko 1 nakuDaniyeli isahluko 7 imbonisa ngokucacile uJehova eqondisa izinto zize zifinyelele emvuthwandabeni wazo omkhulu. UJesu uyahola ekuqondiseni ingxenye esemhlabeni yenhlangano kaJehova ukuze igxile ekushumayeleni izindaba ezinhle, inakekele ngokomoya labo abenza lo msebenzi futhi isekele ukukhulekelwa kweqiniso kukaJehova. Yeka ukuthi lokhu kusenza siyethembe kangakanani inhlangano kaJehova!—Math. 24:45.

2 Ingabe thina siyahambisana nale nhlangano emangalisayo? Ingabe ukushisekela kwethu iqiniso kuqhubeka kukhula noma kuyancipha? Lapho sicabanga ngemibuzo enjengalena, singase siphawule ukuthi sesiqale ukukhathala noma ngandlela-thile intshiseko yethu isinciphile. Lokho kungenzeka. Ekhulwini lokuqala, umphostoli uPawulu kwadingeka akhuthaze amaKristu ayekanye nawo ukuba acabangele isibonelo sikaJesu sentshiseko. UPawulu wathi lokhu kwakuyowasiza ukuba ‘angakhathali aphele amandla emiphefumulweni yawo.’ (Heb. 12:3) Ngendlela efanayo, ukucabangela ngokucophelela isihloko esandulele esibonisa lokho okufezwa yinhlangano kaJehova, kumelwe ukuba kusisize kakhulu ukuba silondoloze intshiseko nokukhuthazela kwethu.

3 Nokho, uPawulu wabonisa ukuthi kudingeka okwengeziwe uma sifuna ukungakhathali. Wathi kuyodingeka sisebenzele “ukwenza okuhle.” (Gal. 6:9) Ngakho, kudingeka sithathe isinyathelo. Ake sicabangele izici ezinhlanu zokukhulekela kwethu ezingasisiza sihlale siqinile futhi sihambisana nenhlangano kaJehova. Ngemva kwalokho singanquma ukuthi zikhona  yini izici okudingeka ukuba thina noma imikhaya yethu sizinake kakhudlwana.

UKUHLANGANA UKUZE SIKHUTHAZANE FUTHI SIKHULEKELE

(1 AmaKh. 22:19; Jobe 1:6; 2:1; Dan. 7:10) Kwa-Israyeli wasendulo, abantu kwakumelwe bahlangane “ukuze balalele futhi bafunde.” (Dut. 31:10-12) AmaJuda ekhulu lokuqala ayenomkhuba wokuya emasinagogeni ayofunda imiBhalo. (Luka 4:16; IzE. 15:21) Lokhu kugcizelelwa kokubaluleka kokuhlangana ndawonye kwaqhubeka lapho kumiswa ibandla lobuKristu futhi kuseyingxenye ebalulekile yokukhulekela kwethu. AmaKristu eqiniso ‘ayacabangelana ukuze avuselelane uthando nemisebenzi emihle.’ Kudingeka siqhubeke ‘sikhuthazana, ikakhulu njengoba sibona usuku lukaJehova lusondela.’—Heb. 10:24, 25.

5. Singakhuthazana kanjani emihlanganweni yethu?

5 Enye indlela ebalulekile esikhuthazana ngayo iwukuba sibe nengxenye emihlanganweni yethu.

(IHu. 22:22; 40:9) Ngokuqinisekile uzovuma ukuthi kungakhathaliseki ukuthi isiminingi kangakanani iminyaka siya emihlanganweni, kuhlale kuwumthombo wesikhuthazo ukulalela izimpendulo ezisuka enhliziyweni zabafowethu nodadewethu—abancane nabadala.

Imihlangano yethu yebandla, imihlangano emincane nemikhulu isisiza ukuba sibe nesibindi sokukhuluma ngokungesabi nesokubhekana nokuphikiswa noma ukunganakwa ensimini yethu. (IzE. 4:23, 31) Izinkulumo ezisekelwe emiBhalweni ziyasiqinisa okholweni. (IzE. 15:32; Roma 1:11, 12) Ukufundiswa nethuba lokukhuthazana esiba nalo emibuthanweni yethu yokukhulekela kusisiza ukuba sithole injabulo yangempela futhi kusinika “ukuzola ezinsukwini zenhlekelele.” (IHu. 94:12, 13) IKomiti Yokufundisa YeNdikimba Ebusayo yengamela ukulungiselelwa kwazo zonke izinhlelo ezingokomoya zokufundisa abantu bakaJehova emhlabeni wonke. Yeka ukuthi siwazisa kanjani amalungiselelo enzelwa ukuba sijabulele imfundo eyakhayo emihlanganweni yethu masonto onke!

7, 8. (a) Iyini injongo eyinhloko yemihlangano yethu yebandla? (b) Ikusiza kanjani imihlangano ngokomoya?

7 Nokho, kunokuthile okubaluleke nakakhulu ngaphezu kwezinzuzo esizithola emihlanganweni yethu. Injongo eyinhloko yokuhlangana kwethu ndawonye ukukhulekela uJehova. (Funda iHubo 95:6.) Yeka ilungelo esinalo lokudumisa uNkulunkulu wethu omangalisayo! (Kol. 3:16) UJehova uyakufanelekela ukuba simkhulekele njalo ngokuba khona nangokuba nengxenye emibuthanweni engokwasezulwini. (IsAm. 4:11) Yingakho sinxuswa ukuba “singakuyeki ukuhlangana kwethu ndawonye, njengoba kungumkhuba wabanye”!—Heb. 10:25.

8 Ingabe sibheka imihlangano yethu yobuKristu njengelungiselelo lokusisiza sikhuthazele kuze kube yilapho uJehova ethatha isinyathelo sokuqeda lesi simiso sezinto esibi? Uma kunjalo, imihlangano iyoba phakathi ‘kwezinto ezibaluleke kakhulu’ esiyozifunela indawo ekuphileni kwethu okumatasa. (Fil. 1:10) Kumelwe  kube isizathu esingenakugwenywa ngempela esisenza siphuthelwe ithuba lokuhlangana nabafowethu ekukhulekeleni uJehova.

(Math. 28:19, 20) Kusukela ngaleso sikhathi, yonke inhlangano kaJehova iye yagxila emsebenzini wokushumayela ngoMbuso nokwenza abafundi. Okuhlangenwe nakho okuningi kwanamuhla kunikeza ubufakazi bokuthi izingelosi ziyawusekela umsebenzi wethu futhi zisiqondisa kulabo ‘abathambekele ngokufanele ekuphileni okuphakade.’ (IzE. 13:48; IsAm. 14:6, 7) Ingxenye esemhlabeni yenhlangano kaJehova ekhona namuhla ihlelelwe ukuba isekele lo msebenzi obaluleke kunayo yonke. Ingabe nakithi inkonzo iza kuqala ekuphileni kwethu?

10. (a) Chaza indlela esingakwazi ngayo ukugcina uthando lwethu ngeqiniso luvutha. (b) Ikusize kanjani inkonzo ukuba ungakhathali?

11 UJehova usilungiselele insada yokudla okungokomoya okubhaliwe ukuze kusinike amandla. Akungabazeki ukuthi ungase ukhumbule isikhathi okwathi ngemva kokufunda enye yezincwadi zethu, wacabanga: ‘Yikho kanye ebengikudinga! Kunjengokungathi uJehova uyibhalele mina!’ Lokho akukhona nje ukuqondana kwezinto. Ngala malungiselelo, uJehova uyasifundisa futhi asiqondise. Uthe: “Ngizokwenza ube nokuqondisisa ngikufundise indlela okufanele uhambe ngayo.” (IHu. 32:8) Ingabe silwela ukukudla konke ukudla okungokomoya esikutholayo futhi sizindle ngakho? Ukwenza kanjalo kuyosisiza ukuba siqhubeke sithela izithelo futhi singabuni ngokomoya kulezi zinsuku zokugcina ezinzima.—Funda iHubo 1:1-3; 35:28; 119:97.

Amagatsha anyathelisayo athumela izincwadi emabandleni aseduze nakude. Kungani kwenziwa wonke lo msebenzi? Ukuze abantu bakaJehova bondleke kahle ngokomoya. (Isaya 65:13) Kwangathi singakukhuthalela ukudla konke ukudla okungokomoya esikuthola ngenhlangano kaJehova.—IHu. 119:27.

SEKELA AMALUNGISELELO ENHLANGANO

13, 14. Obani abasekela amalungiselelo kaJehova ezulwini, futhi singawasekela kanjani ngendlela efanayo lapha emhlabeni?

(IsAm. 19:11-15) Yeka ukuthi kuqinisa ukholo kanjani ukwazi ukuthi uJesu ulandelwa yizingelosi ezithembekile kanye nabanqobi abagcotshiwe abavela emhlabeni, asebethole umvuzo wabo wasezulwini!

Ukwenezela kulokhu, ingabe siyaxoxa njengomkhaya ngezindlela esingasebenzisa ngayo imali ekusekeleni umsebenzi womhlaba wonke ngokunikela? (IzAga 3:9; 1 Kor. 16:2; 2 Kor. 8:12) Ingabe silibheka njengelibalulekile ilungelo lokuhlanganyela ekugcineni iHholo LoMbuso lisesimweni esihle?
