Mukumva bwanji za osakhulupilira?

483 kodi okhulupirira amaganiza bwanji za osakhulupiriraNdikutembenuzirani ndi funso lofunika: Mukuganiza bwanji za osakhulupirira? Ndikuganiza kuti ili ndi funso lomwe tonse tiyenera kulilingalira! Chuck Colson, yemwe anayambitsa Prison Fellowship ku USA, nthawi ina anayankha funsoli ndi fanizo: “Ngati munthu wakhungu akupondani kapena akutsanulira khofi wotentha pa malaya anu, kodi mungamukwiyire? Amadziyankha yekha kuti mwina sangakhale ife, makamaka chifukwa wakhungu sangathe kuwona zomwe zili patsogolo pake ».

Chonde dziwani kuti anthu omwe sanaitanidwe kuti akhulupirire Khristu sangathe kuwona chowonadi pamaso pawo. “Kwa osakhulupirira amene Mulungu wa dziko lapansi wachititsa khungu maganizo awo kuti asaone kuwala kowala kwa Uthenga Wabwino wa ulemerero wa Khristu, amene ali m’chifanizo cha Mulungu.”2. Akorinto 4,4). Koma pa nthawi yoyenera, Mzimu Woyera amatsegula maso awo auzimu kuti athe kuona. “Ndipo muloleni iye (Yesu Kristu) akupatseni inu kuunikira kwa mitima ya maso anu, kuti mudziwe chiyembekezo chimene munaitanidwa ndi Iye, kuti ulemerero wa cholowa chake uli wolemera bwanji kwa oyera mtima” ( Aefeso. 1,18). Abambo a Tchalitchi anatcha chochitikachi “chozizwitsa cha kuunika”. Zimenezi zikachitika, zimakhala zotheka kuti anthu azikhulupirira. Iwo amakhulupirira chifukwa tsopano akuona ndi maso awo. Ngakhale kuti anthu ena, mosasamala kanthu za kuona maso, amasankha kusakhulupirira, ndikukhulupirira kuti ambiri a iwo pa nthawi ina m’miyoyo yawo adzalabadira kuitanidwa komveka bwino kwa Mulungu. Ndikupemphera kuti muzichita zimenezi mwamsanga osati mochedwa, kuti pa nthawiyi mudzakhalenso ndi mtendere ndi chimwemwe chifukwa chodziwa Mulungu komanso kuuza ena za Mulungu.

Timakhulupirira kuti titha kuwona kuti osakhulupirira ali ndi malingaliro olakwika okhudza Mulungu. Zina mwa malingaliro awa ndi zotsatira za zitsanzo zoyipa zochokera kwa akhristu. Ena amachokera kumalingaliro osamveka komanso onama okhudza Mulungu omwe akhala akumveka kwazaka zambiri. Malingaliro olakwikawa amachititsa khungu kwakanthawi kwauzimu. Kodi timayankha bwanji chifukwa cha kusakhulupirira kwawo? Tsoka ilo, ife akhristu timayankha pomanga makoma otetezera kapena kukanidwa mwamphamvu. Pakumanga makoma awa, tikungoyang'ana chenicheni chakuti osakhulupirira ali ofunika kwa Mulungu monganso okhulupirira. Timaiwala kuti Mwana wa Mulungu sanabwere padziko lapansi kokha kwa okhulupirira okha, komanso kwa anthu onse.

Pamene Yesu anayamba utumiki wake padziko lapansi, kunalibe Akhristu, ndipo anthu ambiri anali osakhulupirira, ngakhalenso Ayuda a m’nthawi imeneyo. Koma chosangalatsa n’chakuti Yesu anali bwenzi la ochimwa – woimira anthu osakhulupirira. Iye anati: “Anthu amphamvu safuna dokotala, koma odwala.” (Mat 9,12). Yesu anadzipereka yekha kufunafuna ochimwa otayika kuti amulandire ndi chipulumutso chimene anawapatsa. Choncho ankathera nthawi yochuluka ndi anthu amene ankawaona kuti ndi osafunika komanso osafunika. Choncho atsogoleri achipembedzo a Ayuda anatchula Yesu kuti “mmbulu, wakumwaimwa vinyo, ndi bwenzi la okhometsa msonkho ndi ochimwa.” ( Luka 7,34).

Uthenga Wabwino umavumbula chowonadi kwa ife: “Yesu Mwana wa Mulungu anakhala munthu wakukhala pakati pathu, namwalira, nakwera kumwamba; adachita izi kwa anthu onse. Malemba amatiuza kuti Mulungu amakonda “dziko lapansi”. (Johannes 3,16) Zimenezi zikutanthauza kuti anthu ambiri ndi osakhulupirira. Mulungu yemweyo amatiitana ife okhulupirira, monga Yesu, kuti tizikonda anthu onse. Pachifukwa ichi tikusowa chidziwitso kuti tiwaone ngati "sanakhulupirire Khristu" - monga anthu ake, omwe Yesu adawafera ndi kuuka kwa akufa. Tsoka ilo, izi ndizovuta kwambiri kwa Akhristu ambiri. Zikuoneka kuti pali Akhristu okwanira ofunitsitsa kuweruza ena. Mwana wa Mulungu analengeza kuti: “Pakuti Mulungu sanatume Mwana wake ku dziko lapansi kuti adzaweruze dziko lapansi, koma kuti dziko lapansi likapulumutsidwe mwa iye.” ( Yoh. 3,17). Koma n’zomvetsa chisoni kuti Akhristu ena amakhala achangu kwambiri poweruza anthu osakhulupirira moti amanyalanyaza n’komwe mmene Mulungu Atate amawaonera monga ana ake okondedwa. Kwa anthu awa adatumiza mwana wake kuti adzawafere iwo, ngakhale iwo sanathe kumuzindikira kapena kumukonda. Titha kuwaona ngati osakhulupirira kapena osakhulupirira, koma Mulungu amawaona ngati okhulupirira amtsogolo. Mzimu Woyera asanatsegule maso a wosakhulupirira, amatsekedwa ndi khungu la kusakhulupirira - kusokonezedwa ndi malingaliro olakwika aumulungu okhudza umunthu wa Mulungu ndi chikondi. Ndi m'mikhalidwe imeneyi m'pamene tiyenera kuikonda m'malo moipewa kapena kuikana. Tiyenera kupemphera kuti pamene Mzimu Woyera awapatsa mphamvu, amvetsetse uthenga wabwino wa chisomo chakuyanjanitsa cha Mulungu ndi kulandira chowonadi ndi chikhulupiriro. Anthuwa alowe mu moyo watsopano pansi pa chitsogozo ndi ulamuliro wa Mulungu, ndipo Mzimu Woyera uwathandize kukhala ndi mtendere umene wapatsidwa kwa iwo monga ana a Mulungu.

Pamene tikusinkhasinkha za anthu osakhulupirira, tiyeni tikumbukire lamulo la Yesu lakuti: “Ndi lamulo langa, kuti mukondane wina ndi mnzake monga ine ndimakukonderani inu (Yohane 15,12).» Nanga Yesu amatikonda bwanji? Mwa kutilola kukhala ndi phande m’moyo ndi chikondi chake. Samanga makoma olekanitsa okhulupirira ndi osakhulupirira. Mauthenga Abwino amatiuza kuti Yesu ankakonda ndi kulandira okhometsa msonkho, achigololo, ogwidwa ndi khate. Chikondi chake chinalinso kwa akazi omwe anali ndi mbiri yoipa, asilikali amene ankamunyoza ndi kumumenya, ndi zigawenga zopachikidwa pambali pake. Pamene Yesu anapachikidwa pa mtanda nakumbukira anthu onsewa, anapemphera kuti: “Atate, akhululukireni iwo; chifukwa sadziwa zomwe akuchita!" (Luka 23,34). Yesu amawakonda ndipo amawalandira onse kuti onse akhululukidwe ndi Iye, monga Mpulumutsi ndi Ambuye wawo, ndikukhala mu chiyanjano ndi Atate wawo wa Kumwamba kudzera mwa Mzimu Woyera.

Yesu amakupatsani gawo mu chikondi chake kwa osakhulupilira. Potero, mumawawona anthu awa ngati chuma cha Mulungu, amene adalenga ndikuwombola, ngakhale sakudziwabe Yemwe amawakonda. Mukasunga izi, malingaliro anu ndi machitidwe anu kwa osakhulupilira adzasintha. Mudzawakumbatira anthu awa ndi manja awiri ngati ana amasiye komanso otalikirana omwe sanadziwe abambo awo enieni. Monga abale ndi alongo otayika, sazindikira kuti ndi abale ndi ife kudzera mwa Khristu. Yesetsani kukumana ndi osakhulupirira ndi chikondi cha Mulungu, kuti nawonso alandire chisomo cha Mulungu m'miyoyo yawo.
