Pentekoste: mphamvu ya uthenga wabwino

Pentekoste 644Yesu analonjeza ophunzira ake kuti: “Taonani, Ine ndikutumiza kwa inu chimene Atate wanga analonjeza. Koma muzikhala mumzindawo mpaka mutapatsidwa mphamvu zochokera kumwamba.” ( Luka 24,29). Luka akubwereza lonjezo la Yesu kuti: «Ndipo pamene anali nawo pa mgonero, anawalamulira kuti asatuluke mu Yerusalemu, koma adikire lonjezano la Atate, limene munalimva kwa Ine; pakuti Yohane anabatiza ndi madzi, koma inu mudzabatizidwa ndi Mzimu Woyera, atapita masiku ano.” ( Machitidwe a Atumwi 1,4-5).

Mu Machitidwe a Atumwi tikuphunzira kuti ophunzira analandira mphatso yolonjezedwa pa tsiku la Pentekosti chifukwa – anabatizidwa ndi Mzimu Woyera, amene anawapatsa mphamvu ya Mulungu. “Anadzazidwa onse ndi Mzimu Woyera, nayamba kulalikira m’zinenero zina, monga Mzimu anawauza kuti alankhule.” ( Machitidwe a Atumwi 2,4).

Ayuda mwamwambo amagwirizanitsa Pentekosti ndi kusamutsidwa kwa lamulo ndi pangano lopangidwa ndi anthu a Israyeli pa Phiri la Sinai. Chifukwa cha Chipangano Chatsopano, tili ndi kumvetsetsa kokwanira lero. Timagwirizanitsa Pentekoste ndi mzimu woyera ndi pangano limene Mulungu anapangana ndi anthu amitundu yonse amene ali mu mpingo wake.

Kuitanidwa kukhala mboni

Pa Pentekosite timakumbukira kuti Mulungu anatiitana monga anthu ake atsopano: “Koma inu ndinu mbadwa yosankhika, ansembe achifumu, anthu oyera mtima, anthu a chuma chanu, kuti mukalalikire zachifundo za Iye amene anakuitanani mumdima, kulowa m’mdima. kuwala kodabwitsa »(1. Peter 2,9).

Kodi cholinga cha maitanidwe athu ndi chiyani? N’cifukwa ciani Mulungu amatisankha kukhala anthu a m’banja lathu? Kulengeza zabwino zake. N’chifukwa chiyani amatipatsa mzimu woyera? Kukhala mboni za Yesu Khristu: “Mudzalandira mphamvu ya Mzimu Woyera, amene adzadza pa inu, ndipo mudzakhala mboni zanga m’Yerusalemu, ndi m’Yudeya lonse, ndi Samariya, ndi kufikira malekezero a dziko.” ( Machitidwe a Atumwi 1,8). Mzimu Woyera umatipatsa mphamvu yolalikira uthenga wabwino, kulalikira uthenga wabwino wakuti anthu ali mu ufumu wa Mulungu mwa chisomo ndi chifundo cha Mulungu komanso zimene Khristu watichitira.

Mulungu anapanga pangano ndi ife. Mulungu amatilonjeza moyo wosatha, umene Mzimu Woyera umayimira chiyembekezo chosasinthika cha chipulumutso chathu (uwu ndi ufulu umene chikhalidwe chake sichinakwaniritsidwebe). Lonjezo la Mulungu ndi gawo lake m’mapanganowo. Iye amadziwika ndi chisomo, chifundo ndi Mzimu Woyera. Tayitanidwa ndikupatsidwa Mzimu Woyera - pano ndipo tsopano gawo lathu likuyamba - kuti tikawone chifundo cha Mulungu chomwe chinabwera kwa ife mwa Yesu Khristu Mpulumutsi wathu. Uwu ndi ntchito ya mpingo, cholinga chake, ndi cholinga chimene membala aliyense wa mpingo wa Mulungu, thupi la Khristu, amaitanidwira.

Mpingo uli ndi udindo wolalikira uthenga wabwino ndi kuphunzitsa anthu za chiombolo chimene tinagula kudzera mu nsembe ya Khristu: “Kwalembedwa kuti Khristu adzamva zowawa, nadzauka kwa akufa tsiku lachitatu; ndi kuti kulalikidwa m’dzina lake kulalikidwa kwa kulapa, kuloza ku chikhululukiro cha machimo mwa anthu onse. Kuchokera ku Yerusalemu kupita m’tsogolo inu ndinu mboni za zimenezi.”— Luka 24,46-48). Mzimu Woyera unaperekedwa kwa atumwi ndi okhulupirira pa Pentekosti kuti akhale mboni zopatsidwa mphamvu za Yesu Khristu.
Ntchito ya mpingo ndi gawo la chithunzi chomwe chafotokozedwa momveka bwino kwa ife kudzera mu tsiku la Pentekosti. Pa tsiku la Pentekosti timakondwerera chiyambi chochititsa chidwi cha Mpingo wa Chipangano Chatsopano. Timaganiziranso za kulandiridwa kwathu kwa uzimu mu banja la Mulungu ndi kukonzanso kosalekeza, komanso mphamvu ndi kulimba mtima kumene Mulungu amatipatsa kudzera mwa Mzimu Woyera. Pentekosti imatikumbutsa kuti Mzimu Woyera amatsogolera mpingo m’choonadi ndi kutsogolera, kulimbikitsa ndi kukonzekeretsa anthu a Mulungu kuti “tikhale ngati chifaniziro cha Mwana wake, kuti Iye akhale woyamba kubadwa mwa abale ambiri.” 8,29) komanso kuti amatiyimira pampando wachifumu wa Mulungu (ndime 26). Mofananamo, Pentekosti ingatikumbutse kuti mpingo umapangidwa ndi anthu onse amene Mzimu Woyera amakhala. Chaka chilichonse Pentekosti imatikumbutsa kusunga umodzi mumzimu kudzera m’chomangira cha mtendere (Aef 4,3).

Akhristu amakondwerera tsikuli pokumbukira mzimu woyera, amene analandira pamodzi nthawi zosiyanasiyana. Tchalitchi simalo chabe amene amaphunzitsidwa mfundo za moyo wathanzi ndi wakhalidwe labwino; lilipo ndi cholinga cholengeza zabwino za Yesu Kristu ndipo akugogomezeranso kuti: “Koma inu ndinu mbadwa yosankhika, ansembe achifumu, anthu oyera mtima, anthu a chuma chake, kuti mulalikire zokoma za Iye amene anakuitanani inu ansembe. mdima kulowa mu kuwala kwake kodabwitsa »(1. Peter 2,9).

Ngakhale kuti tonsefe timafuna kukhala anthu osintha mwauzimu, si cholinga chokhacho chimene tili nacho. Akhristu ali ndi utumwi - utumwi umene umapatsidwa mphamvu ndi Mzimu Woyera. Amatilimbikitsa kulengeza za Ambuye Yesu Khristu ndi kunyamula uthenga wa chiyanjanitso mwa chikhulupiriro m’dzina lake padziko lonse lapansi.

Pentekosti ndi zotsatira za moyo wotsogozedwa ndi Mzimu Woyera – moyo umene umachitira umboni za chilungamo, mphamvu, ndi chifundo cha Yesu Khristu. Moyo wachikhristu wokhulupirika ndi umboni wa uthenga wabwino. Moyo woterowo umatsimikizira, umavumbula chowonadi, kuti Mulungu akugwira ntchito mwa ife. Ndi kuyenda, kulankhula umboni wa uthenga wabwino.

Kututa kwauzimu

Pentekosti poyambirira inali chikondwerero cha zokolola. Masiku anonso mpingo ukuchita zokolola zauzimu. Chipatso kapena zotsatira za ntchito ya Mpingo ndi kufalitsa uthenga wabwino ndi kulengeza za chipulumutso cha anthu kudzera mwa Yesu. “Kwezani maso anu, muyang’ane m’minda: yapsa kale kufikira kumweta,” anatero Yesu kwa ophunzira ake pamene anali ku Samariya. Kale pano Yesu analankhula za kututa kwauzimu kumene anthu amapatsidwa moyo wosatha: “Wokolola adzalandira mphotho, nasonkhanitsa zipatso ku moyo wosatha, kuti wofesa ndi wotuta akondwere.” ( Yoh. 4,35-36).

Pa nthawi ina, Yesu anaona khamu la anthu ndipo anauza ophunzira ake kuti: “Zokolola n’zochuluka, koma antchito ndi ochepa. Chifukwa chake pemphani Mwini zotuta kuti atumize antchito kukututa kwake.” (Mat 9,37-38). Izi ndi zomwe Pentekosti iyenera kutilimbikitsa kuchita. Tiyenera kuthokoza Mulungu potithandiza kuona anthu otizungulira akonzekera ntchito yokolola mwauzimu. Tiyenera kupempha antchito owonjezereka chifukwa tikufuna kuti anthu ambiri alandire nawo madalitso auzimu a Mulungu. Timafuna kuti anthu a Mulungu azilengeza za ubwino wa anthu amene anatipulumutsa.

Yesu anati: “Chakudya changa n’chakuti ndichite chifuniro cha amene anandituma ndi kutsiriza ntchito yake.” ( Yoh 4,34). Umenewo unali moyo wake, chakudya chake, mphamvu zake. Iye ndiye gwero la moyo wathu. Iye ndiye mkate wathu, mkate wa moyo wosatha. Chakudya chathu chauzimu ndicho kuchita chifuniro chake, ntchito yake, yomwe ndi uthenga wabwino. Tiyenera kutsatira mapazi a Yesu ndi kutulutsa njira yake ya moyo pamene iye akukhala mwa ife. Tiyenera kumulola kukwaniritsa zolinga zake m’moyo wathu komanso kuchita zinthu mogwirizana ndi zimene iye amafuna.

Uthenga wa Mpingo Woyambirira

M’buku la Machitidwe muli nkhani zambiri za ulaliki. Uthengawu ukubwerezedwa mobwerezabwereza ndipo umatsindika kwambiri za Yesu Khristu monga Mpulumutsi, Ambuye, Woweruza ndi Mfumu. Ngakhale Koneliyo, kapitao wachiroma, ankadziwa uthengawo. Petro anati kwa iye: “Inu mukudziwa uthenga wopulumutsa umene Mulungu analengeza kwa Aisraeli: Iye anabweretsa mtendere kudzera mwa Yesu Khristu, ndipo Khristu ndiye Ambuye wa onse! (Machitidwe a Atumwi 10,36 HFA). Petro anafotokoza mwachidule uthenga umene unali kale wofala kwambiri moti Korneliyo anaudziwanso kuti: “Mudziŵa zimene zinachitika m’Yudeya lonse, kuyambira ku Galileya, pambuyo pa ubatizo umene Yohane analalikira, mmene Mulungu anadzoza Yesu wa ku Nazarete ndi Mzimu Woyera ndi mphamvu; anayendayenda nacita zabwino, naciritsa onse amene anali mu mphamvu ya mdierekezi; pakuti Mulungu anali naye. Ndipo ife ndife mboni za zonse zimene anachita m’dziko la Ayuda ndi mu Yerusalemu.”​—Machitidwe 10:37-39.

Petro anapitiriza kulalikira uthenga wabwino potchula za kupachikidwa kwa Yesu pa mtanda ndi kuukitsidwa kwake, kenako anafotokoza mwachidule ntchito ya mpingo kuti: “Anatilamulira ife kulalikira kwa anthu, ndi kuchita umboni kuti iye anaikidwa ndi Mulungu kuti awaweruze amoyo ndi amoyo. akufa. Aneneri onse akuchitira umboni za Iye, kuti mwa dzina lake onse akukhulupirira Iye alandire chikhululukiro cha machimo” (Machitidwe 10:42-43).
Choncho timalalikira za chipulumutso, chisomo, ndi Yesu Khristu. Inde ndithu! Ndilo dalitso lalikulu kwambiri limene sitinalandirepo. Chowonadi cha chipulumutso chathu n’chosangalatsa, ndipo tikufuna kuchigaŵana ndi anthu anzathu kuti nawonso asangalale ndi madalitso omwewo! Pamene mpingo unazunzidwa chifukwa cholalikira uthenga wa Yesu, iwo anapempherera kulimba mtima kuti alalikire kwambiri! “Atatha kupemphera, pamalo pamene anasonkhanako pananjenjemera; ndipo anadzazidwa onse ndi Mzimu Woyera, nalankhula mawu a Mulungu molimbika mtima ... ndi mphamvu yaikulu atumwi anachitira umboni za kuuka kwa Ambuye Yesu; ndipo panali chisomo chachikulu pa iwo onse” ( Machitidwe a Atumwi 4,31.33). Mzimu Woyera unaperekedwa kwa iwo kuti athe kulalikira Khristu.

Kwa Mkhristu aliyense

Mzimu sunaperekedwe kwa atumwi okha kapena kwa mpingo wonse wokhazikitsidwa kumene. Mzimu Woyera umaperekedwa kwa Mkhristu aliyense amene akhulupilira mwa Yesu. Aliyense wa ife ayenera kukhala umboni wamoyo wa Yesu Khristu chifukwa chiyembekezo chathu mwa Khristu chili ndi maziko abwino, pakuti aliyense wa ife ali ndi mwayi wopereka yankho lolimbikitsa ku chiyembekezo chathu. Stefano ataponyedwa miyala chifukwa cholalikira za Yesu Khristu, chizunzo chachikulu chinadza ndi mphamvu yaikulu pa mpingo woyamba. Onse kupatulapo atumwi anathawa ku Yerusalemu (Machitidwe a Atumwi 8,1). Kulikonse kumene ankapita ankalalikira uthenga wabwino komanso “kulalikira uthenga wabwino wa Ambuye Yesu.” ( Mac 11,19-20).

Luka akupereka chithunzi cha amuna ndi akazi ambiri achikristu amene anathawa ku Yerusalemu chifukwa chokhulupirira Yesu Kristu. Iwo sakanatha kukhala chete, ngakhale moyo wawo ukanakhala pangozi! Zinalibe kanthu kaya anali akulu kapena anthu wamba - aliyense wa iwo ankachitira umboni za Yesu Khristu. Pamene anali kuyendayenda, anafunsidwa kuti n’cifukwa ciani anacokela ku Yerusalemu. Mosakayikira iwo anauza aliyense amene anawafunsa.

Ichi ndi chipatso cha Mzimu Woyera; uku ndiko kututa kwauzimu komwe kunayatsidwa ndi Pentekosti. Anthuwa anali okonzeka kupereka yankho! Inali nthawi yosangalatsa ndipo changu chomwecho chiyenera kulamulira mu mpingo lero. Mzimu Woyera womwewo unatsogolera ophunzira panthawiyo ndipo Mzimu womwewo umatsogolera mpingo lero. Mungapemphe kulimba mtima komweko kuti mukhale mboni ya Yesu Kristu!
