462 mulungu akhale momwe aliliNdikufunsa mafunso angapo tonsefe omwe tili ndi ana. "Kodi mwana wako sanakumverepo?" Ngati mwayankha kuti inde, monga makolo ena onse, timabwera ku funso lachiwiri: "Kodi mudamulangapo mwana wanu chifukwa chosamvera?" Chilangocho chidatenga nthawi yayitali bwanji? Kunena momveka bwino: "Kodi mudamufotokozera mwana wanu kuti chilango sichidzatha?" Zikumveka zamisala, sichoncho?

Akhristu ena amakhulupirira kuti Mulungu samangodana ndi adani ake, koma amawalola kuti apse kumoto, mopanda chifundo ndi mosalekeza kwamuyaya.

Kumbali ina, Yesu adapempherera asilikari omwe adampachika kuti: "Atate, akhululukireni chifukwa sadziwa zomwe akuchita." Akhristu ena amaphunzitsa kuti Mulungu amakhululuka ochepa okha omwe adalamuliratu kuti awakhululukire dziko lapansi lisanalengedwe. Zikanakhala kuti izi ndi zoona, pemphero la Yesu silikadapanga kusiyana kwakukulu, sichoncho?  

Mtolo waukulu

Mtsogoleri wachinyamata wachikhristu adauza gulu la achinyamata nkhani yoopsa yakumana ndi abambo. Iyemwini adadzimva wokakamizidwa kuti alalikire uthenga kwa mwamunayo, koma adalephera kutero pokambirana. Pambuyo pake adamva kuti mwamunayo adamwalira pangozi yapamsewu tsiku lomwelo. "Mwamuna uyu tsopano ali ku Gahena," adauza achichepere achichepere, ndi maso akulu, "komwe akuzunzika kosaneneka." Kenako, atayimitsa kaye masewero, adaonjezeranso kuti: "ndipo zomwe zili pano paphewa langa". Anawauza za maloto ake okhumudwitsa zakunyalanyaza kwake. Anali atagona pabedi akulira ndi lingaliro lowopsya loti munthu wosauka ameneyu adzakumana ndi mavuto a moto wamoto kwamuyaya.

Ndimadabwa kuti anthu ena amatha bwanji kugwirizanitsa zikhulupiriro zawo mwaluso kotero kuti amakhulupirira kuti Mulungu amakonda kwambiri dziko moti anatumiza Yesu kuti adzapulumuke. Kumbali ina, amakhulupilira (ndi chikhulupiriro chofooketsa) kuti Mulungu sadziwa kupulumutsa anthu ndipo tiyenera kuwatumiza ku Gahena chifukwa chakulephera kwathu. “Mmodzi amapulumutsidwa mwa chisomo, osati mwa ntchito,” iwo amatero, ndipo uko nkulondola. Iwo ali ndi lingaliro, mosiyana ndi uthenga wabwino, kuti tsogolo lamuyaya la anthu limadalira chipambano kapena kulephera kwa ntchito yathu yolalikira.

Yesu ndiye Mpulumutsi, Mpulumutsi ndi Mombolo!

Momwe ife anthu timakondera ana athu, koposa kotani iwo amakondedwa ndi Mulungu? Ndi funso longoyerekeza - Mulungu amakukondani koposa momwe tingakhalire.

Yesu anati: “Ali kuti atate pakati panu amene, pom’pempha nsomba, apatsa mwana wake njoka m’malo mwa nsombazo? ... Ngati inu, okhala oipa, mupatsa ana anu mphatso zabwino, koposa kotani nanga Atate wa Kumwamba adzapatsa Mzimu Woyera kwa iwo akumpempha Iye! (Luka 11,11 ndi. 13).

Zoona zake n’zimene Yohane akutiuza kuti: Mulungu amakondadi dziko lapansi. “Pakuti Mulungu anakonda dziko lapansi kotero, kuti anapatsa Mwana wake wobadwa yekha, kuti yense wakukhulupirira Iye asatayike, koma akhale nawo moyo wosatha. Pakuti Mulungu sanatumize Mwana wake m’dziko kuti adzaweruze dziko lapansi, koma kuti dziko lapansi likapulumutsidwe kudzera mwa iye.” ( Yoh 3,16-17 ndi).

Chipulumutso cha dziko lino - dziko lomwe Mulungu amalikonda kwambiri kotero kuti adatumiza Mwana wake kuti alipulumutse - zimadalira Mulungu yekha ndi Mulungu yekha. Ngati chipulumutso chimadalira pa ife ndi kupambana kwathu pakubweretsa uthenga wabwino kwa anthu, ndiye kuti pakadakhala vuto lalikulu. Komabe, sizidalira pa ife, koma kwa Mulungu yekha. Mulungu adatuma Yesu kuti adzagwire ntchito yotipulumutsa iyi, ndipo adaichita.

Yesu anati: “Chifuniro cha Atate wanga ndi ichi, kuti yense wakuwona Mwana ndi kukhulupirira mwa iye akhale nawo moyo wosatha; ndipo Ine ndidzamuukitsa iye tsiku lomaliza.” ( Yoh 6,40).

Chipulumutso ndi ntchito ya Mulungu, ndipo Atate, Mwana, ndi Mzimu Woyera amachita bwino kwambiri. Ndi dalitso kukhala mbali ya ntchito yabwino yolalikira. Tiyeneranso kudziwa kuti Mulungu nthawi zambiri amagwira ntchito ngakhale kuti sitingakwanitse.

Kodi mumadzimva olakwa chifukwa cholephera kulalikira uthenga wabwino kwa wina? Perekani mtolo kwa Yesu! Mulungu sali wosasamala. Palibe amene amadumpha zala zake ndipo amayenera kupita ku gehena chifukwa cha iwo. Mulungu wathu ndi wabwino, wachifundo ndi wamphamvu. Mutha kumukhulupirira kuti adzaimirira m'malo mwanu komanso kwa anthu onse motere.
