Chofunika cha chisomo

374 chiyambi cha chisomoNthawi zina ndimamva nkhawa kuti tikugogomezera kwambiri chisomo. Monga kuwongolera kovomerezeka, ndiye kuti, ngati kusagwirizana ndi chiphunzitso cha chisomo, titha kulingalira za kumvera, chilungamo ndi ntchito zina zotchulidwa m'Malemba makamaka mu Chipangano Chatsopano. Aliyense amene amadandaula za "chisomo chochuluka" ali ndi nkhawa zomveka. Tsoka ilo, ena amaphunzitsa kuti ngati tapulumutsidwa ndi chisomo osati ntchito zilibe kanthu kuti tikukhala bwanji. Kwa iwo, chisomo ndi chofanana ndi kusadziwa udindo, malamulo, kapena ubale woyembekezera. Kwa iwo, chisomo chimatanthawuza kuti pafupifupi chilichonse chimalandiridwa, popeza zonse zidaperekedwa kale. Malinga ndi chikhulupiriro cholakwika ichi, chisomo ndi tikiti yaulere - m'lingaliro lina ngati mphamvu ya loya kuti athe kuchita zomwe akufuna.

Kusakhulupirira

Antinomism ndi mtundu wa moyo womwe umafalitsa moyo wopanda kapena motsutsana ndi malamulo kapena malamulo aliwonse. Vutoli lakhala mutu wa malemba ndi kulalikira mu mbiri ya mpingo. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, wofera chikhulupiriro mu ulamuliro wa chipani cha Nazi, analankhula m’buku lake lakuti Succession ponena za “chisomo chotsika mtengo”. Antinomism ikunenedwa mu Chipangano Chatsopano. M’kuyankha kwake, Paulo anatchula za chinenezo chakuti kugogomezera kwake chisomo kunalimbikitsa anthu “kukhalabe mu uchimo, kuti chisomo chikhale champhamvu koposa.” ( Aroma 6,1). Yankho la mtumwiyo linali lalifupi ndi lotsindika kuti: “Zikhale kutali! (V.2). Ziganizo zingapo pambuyo pake akubwereza chinenezo choperekedwa kwa iye ndi kuyankha kuti: “Motani tsopano? Kodi tidzachimwa chifukwa sitiri a lamulo koma a chisomo? Zikhale kutali!" (V.15).

Yankho la mtumwi Paulo pa mlandu wotsutsa Mulungu linali lomveka. Aliyense amene angatsutse kuti chisomo chikutanthauza kuti chilichonse ndi chololedwa chifukwa chophimbidwa ndi chikhulupiriro ndi cholakwika. Koma chifukwa chiyani? Chinalakwika ndi chiyani pamenepo? Kodi vuto ndi "chisomo chochuluka"? Ndipo kodi njira yake yothanirana ndi chisomo chomwecho ndi mtundu wina wotsutsana?

Vuto lenileni ndi chiyani?

Vuto lenileni ndikukhulupilira kuti chisomo chikutanthauza kuti Mulungu amapatula lamulo, lamulo, kapena udindo. Ngati chisomo chimatanthawuza kupereka malamulo, inde, ndi chisomo chochuluka pangakhale zosiyana zambiri. Ndipo ngati Mulungu akunenedwa kuti ndi Wachifundo, ndiye kuti tikadayembekezera kuti adzapereka chopatula pa udindo uliwonse kapena ntchito yomwe watichitira. Chisomo chochulukira m'pamenenso chimakhala chosiyana kwambiri ndi kumvera. Ndipo chisomo chochepa, kuchotserako pang'ono komwe kumaloledwa, zabwino pang'ono.

Njira yoteroyo mwina ikufotokoza bwino lomwe zomwe chisomo chaumunthu chingathe kuchita. Koma tisaiwale kuti njira iyi imayesa chisomo motsutsana ndi kumvera. Amawalepheretsa onse awiri kulimbana wina ndi mzake, pamene pamakhala mkangano wa mmbuyo ndi kutsogolo, umene supuma chifukwa onse akumenyana. Mbali zonse ziwiri zimawononga kupambana kwa wina ndi mzake. Mwamwayi, dongosolo loterolo silisonyeza chisomo cha Mulungu. Choonadi chokhudza chisomo chimatimasula ku vuto labodzali.

Chisomo cha Mulungu mwa munthu

Kodi Baibulo limafotokoza bwanji chisomo? “Yesu Khristu mwini akuyimira chisomo cha Mulungu pa ife”. Madalitso a Paulo kumapeto kwa 2. Korinto amatanthauza "chisomo cha Ambuye wathu Yesu Khristu". Mulungu mwaufulu amatipatsa chisomo mu mawonekedwe a Mwana wake wobadwa thupi, amene nayenso mwachisomo apereka chikondi cha Mulungu kwa ife ndi kutiyanjanitsa ife ndi Wamphamvuyonse. Zimene Yesu anatichitira zimavumbula kwa ife chikhalidwe ndi makhalidwe a Atate ndi Mzimu Woyera. Malemba amatiululira kuti Yesu ndiye chizindikiro chokhulupirika cha chikhalidwe cha Mulungu (Aheberi 1,3 Elberfeld Bible). Pamenepo limati, “Iye ali fanizo la Mulungu wosaonekayo” ndipo “kunakondweretsa Mulungu kuti zochuluka zonse zikhale mwa iye.” ( Akolose. 1,15; 19 ndime). Iye amene wamuona waona Atate, ndipo pamene timdziwa, tidzadziwanso Atate4,9; pa 7).

Yesu ananena kuti akuchita “zimene amaona Atate akuchita.” ( Yoh 5,19). Iye amatidziwitsa kuti iye yekha ndiye akudziwa Atate ndi kuti iye yekha amamuulula (Mat 11,27). Yohane akutiuza kuti Mawu a Mulungu ameneyu, amene anali ndi Mulungu kuyambira pachiyambi, adatenga thupi la munthu ndipo “anationetsera ife ulemerero monga Mwana wobadwa yekha wa Atate,” wodzala ndi chisomo ndi choonadi “. Pamene kuli kwakuti “chilamulo [chinaperekedwa] ndi Mose; [ndi] chisomo ndi choonadi [...] kudzera mwa Yesu Khristu.” Zoonadi, “mwa kudzala kwake ife tonse talandira chisomo choposa chisomo. Ndipo Mwana wake, amene anakhala mu mtima wa Mulungu kuyambira kalekale, “analengeza za iye kwa ife.” ( Yoh. 1,14-18).

Yesu akuonetsera chisomo cha Mulungu pa ife – ndipo amavumbulutsa m’mawu ndi m’ntchito kuti Mulungu mwiniyo ndi wodzala ndi chisomo. Iye mwini ndiye chisomo. Iye amatipatsa ife kuchokera mu umunthu wake - yemweyo ife timakomana naye mwa Yesu. Samatipatsa mphatso chifukwa chodalira ifeyo, kapena chifukwa cha udindo uliwonse wotithandiza kuti tipindule. Chifukwa cha kukoma mtima kwake, Mulungu amapereka chisomo, ndiko kuti, mwa Yesu Khristu mwa kufuna kwake. Paulo akutcha chisomo mu kalata yake kwa Aroma kukhala mphatso yowolowa manja yochokera kwa Mulungu (5,15-17; 6,23). M’kalata yake yopita kwa Aefeso iye akulengeza m’mawu osaiŵalika kuti: “Pakuti mudapulumutsidwa ndi chisomo chakuchita mwa chikhulupiriro, ndipo ichi chosachokera kwa inu: chili mphatso ya Mulungu, osati ndi ntchito, kuti asadzitamandire munthu.”2,8-9).

Chilichonse chimene Mulungu amatipatsa, amatipatsa mowolowa manja kuchokera ku ubwino, chifukwa cha chikhumbo chozama cha kuchita zabwino kwa aliyense wocheperapo ndi wosiyana. Zochita zake zachisomo zimachokera ku chikhalidwe chake chachifundo, chowolowa manja. Sasiya kutilola kuti titenge nawo zabwino zake mwakufuna kwake, ngakhale zitakumana ndi kutsutsa, kupanduka ndi kusamvera kwa chilengedwe chake. Iye amayankha ku uchimo ndi chikhululukiro ndi kuyanjanitsidwa mwaufulu mwa kufuna kwathu kupyolera mwa chiwombolo cha Mwana wake. Mulungu, amene ali kuunika, ndipo mwa Iye mulibe mdima, adzipereka yekha kwa ife mwa Mwana wake mwa Mzimu Woyera, kuti moyo upatsidwe kwa ife mu chidzalo chake chonse (1 Yohane. 1,5; Yohane 10,10).

Kodi Mulungu Wakhala Wachisomo Nthaŵi Zonse?

Tsoka ilo, kwanenedwa kaŵirikaŵiri kuti Mulungu poyambirira analonjeza (munthu asanagwe) kuti akapereka ubwino wake (Adamu ndi Hava ndipo pambuyo pake Israyeli) ngati chilengedwe chake chidzakwaniritsa mikhalidwe ina ndi kukwaniritsa mathayo amene amaika pa icho. Ngati sanatero, iyenso sakanakhala wokoma mtima kwa iye. Conco, iye sakanam’khululukila kapena kum’patsa moyo wosatha.

Malinga ndi lingaliro lolakwika ili, Mulungu ali mu mgwirizano "ngati ..., ndiye ..." ubale ndi chilengedwe chake. Mgwirizano umenewo ndiye uli ndi zikhalidwe kapena maudindo (malamulo kapena malamulo) omwe anthu ayenera kutsatira kuti athe kulandira zomwe Mulungu akuwapatsa. Malinga ndi maganizo amenewa, chinthu chofunika kwambiri kwa Wamphamvuyonse n’chakuti tizitsatira malamulo amene iye wakhazikitsa. Ngati sitichita chilungamo pa izi, adzatimana zabwino zake zonse. Choipa kwambiri, adzatipatsa zomwe sizili zabwino, zomwe sizibweretsa kumoyo, koma ku imfa; tsopano ndi nthawi zonse.

Lingaliro lolakwika limeneli limawona lamulo kukhala mkhalidwe wofunika koposa wa umunthu wa Mulungu ndipo choteronso mbali yofunika koposa ya unansi wake ndi chilengedwe chake. Mulungu ameneyu kwenikweni ndi mulungu wachigwirizano yemwe ali ndi ubale ndi chilengedwe chake potengera malamulo ndi mikhalidwe. Amatsogolera ubalewu molingana ndi mfundo ya “mbuye ndi kapolo”. Malinga ndi lingaliro limeneli, kuwolowa manja kwa Mulungu, ponena za ubwino wake ndi madalitso ake, kuphatikizapo chikhululukiro, n’kosiyana kwambiri ndi tanthauzo la chifaniziro cha Mulungu chimene chimafalitsa.

Kwenikweni Mulungu samaimira chifuniro chenicheni kapena malamulo angwiro. Izi zimaonekera bwino tikaona Yesu akutionetsa Atate ndi kutumiza Mzimu Woyera. Izi zimaonekera bwino tikamamva kuchokera kwa Yesu za ubale wake wamuyaya ndi Atate wake komanso mzimu woyera. Iye amatidziwitsa kuti umunthu wake ndi makhalidwe ake ndi ofanana ndi a Atate. Ubale wa bambo ndi mwana supangidwa ndi malamulo, udindo kapena kukwaniritsidwa kwa mikhalidwe kuti apindule mwanjira imeneyi. Bambo ndi mwana sali pachibale mwalamulo. Simunapangane mgwirizano wina ndi mzake, malingana ndi zomwe ngati sizinagwirizane ndi mbali imodzi, winayo ali ndi ufulu wofanana wosagwira ntchito. Lingaliro la mgwirizano wa mgwirizano, wokhazikitsidwa ndi malamulo pakati pa abambo ndi mwana ndi losamveka. Chowonadi, monga chavumbulutsidwa kwa ife kupyolera mwa Yesu, nchakuti unansi wawo uli wa chikondi choyera, kukhulupirika, kudzipereka, ndi kulemekezana. Pemphero la Yesu, monga tikuliŵerenga m’chaputala 17 cha Uthenga Wabwino wa Yohane, limasonyeza bwino lomwe kuti ubale wautatu umenewu ndiwo maziko ndi magwero a zochita za Mulungu mu ubale uliwonse; pakuti nthawi zonse acita monga mwa iye yekha, cifukwa ali woona;

Pa phunziro losamalitsa la Malemba Opatulika kumawonekeratu kuti unansi wa Mulungu ndi chilengedwe chake, ngakhale pambuyo pa kugwa kwa munthu ndi Israyeli, suli wa mgwirizano: Sumamangidwa pamikhalidwe imene iyenera kuwonedwa. Ndikofunikira kuzindikira kuti ubale wa Mulungu ndi Israyeli sunali wozikidwa pa lamulo, osati mgwirizano wokhawokha. Nayenso Paulo ankadziwa zimenezi. Unansi Wamphamvuyonse ndi Israyeli unayamba ndi pangano, lonjezo. Chilamulo cha Mose (Torah) chinayamba kugwira ntchito patapita zaka 430 kuchokera pamene panganolo linakhazikitsidwa. Poganizira ndondomeko ya nthawi, lamulo silinalingaliridwa kukhala maziko a ubale wa Mulungu ndi Israyeli.
Pansi pa panganolo, Mulungu anavomereza mwaufulu kwa Israyeli ndi ubwino wake wonse. Ndipo, monga mudzakumbukira, izi zinalibe chochita ndi zomwe Israeli mwiniyo adakhoza kupereka kwa Mulungu (5. Mo 7,6-8 ndi). Tisaiwale kuti Abrahamu sanam’dziwe Mulungu pamene anamulonjeza kuti adzam’dalitsa ndi kum’pangitsa kukhala dalitso kwa anthu a mitundu yonse.1. Mose 12,2-3). Pangano ndi lonjezano: limasankhidwa mwaufulu komanso liperekedwa. “Ndidzakulandirani kwa anthu anga ndipo ndidzakhala Mulungu wanu,” anatero Yehova Wamphamvuyonse kwa Isiraeli.2. Mo 6,7). Lonjezo la Mulungu la madalitso linali la mbali imodzi, linachokera kumbali yake yekha. Iye adalowa mu pangano monga chionetsero cha chikhalidwe chake, chikhalidwe ndi chikhalidwe chake. Kutseka kwake ndi Israeli kunali kuchita kwa chisomo - inde, chisomo!

Ngati munthu apenda mosamalitsa machaputala oyambirira a Genesis, zimakhala zoonekeratu kuti Mulungu sachita ndi chilengedwe chake motsatira mgwirizano wamtundu wina. Choyamba, chilengedwe pachokha chinali ntchito yopereka mwaufulu. Panalibe chilichonse chimene chinali choyenera kukhalapo, ngakhalenso kukhala ndi moyo wabwino. Mulungu mwiniyo akulengeza kuti: “Ndipo zinali zabwino” inde, “zabwino ndithu”. Mulungu mwaufulu amalola ubwino wake kupindulitsa chilengedwe chake, chimene chiri chocheperapo kwa iye; amamupatsa moyo. Hava anali mphatso ya Mulungu ya kukoma mtima kwa Adamu kuti Adamu asakhalenso yekha. Mofananamo, Adamu ndi Hava Wamphamvuyonse anapatsa Munda wa Edeni naupanga kukhala ntchito yopindulitsa kwa iwo kuusamalira m’njira yoti udzabala zipatso ndi kutaya moyo wochuluka. Adamu ndi Hava sanakwaniritse mikhalidwe ina iliyonse kufikira pamene anapatsidwa mphatso zabwino zimenezi zochokera kwa Mulungu mwa kufuna kwake.

Koma zinali bwanji pambuyo pa Kugwa pamene kusaweruzika kunabwera? Zimasonyeza kuti Mulungu akupitiriza kusonyeza kukoma mtima kwake mofunitsitsa komanso mopanda malire. Kodi pempho lake loti apatse Adamu ndi Hava mwayi woti alape pambuyo pa kusamvera kwawo silinali chisomo? Komanso, taganizirani mmene Mulungu anawaperekera zikopa zoti azivala. Ngakhale kusiyidwa kwake m'munda wa Edeni kunali chisomo chomwe chimayenera kumulepheretsa kugwiritsa ntchito mtengo wa moyo mu uchimo wake. Chitetezero ndi chisamaliro cha Mulungu kwa Kaini tingachione m’njira yomweyo. Timaonanso chisomo cha Mulungu poteteza Nowa ndi banja lake, komanso chitsimikiziro cha utawaleza. Machitidwe onse a chisomo awa ndi mphatso zaulere pansi pa chizindikiro cha ubwino wa Mulungu. Palibe mwa izo ndi mphoto yokwaniritsa ntchito zamtundu uliwonse, ngakhale zazing'ono, zomanga mwalamulo.

Chisomo ngati chisomo chosayenera?

Nthaŵi zonse Mulungu amagaŵana ubwino wake ndi zolengedwa zake momasuka. Iye amachita zimenezi kwamuyaya kuchokera mkati mwake monga Atate, Mwana ndi Mzimu Woyera. Chilichonse chimene Utatu umenewu umavumbula m’chilengedwe chimachitika chifukwa cha kuchuluka kwa anthu a m’kati mwake. Ubale ndi Mulungu wozikidwa pa lamulo ndi pangano silikanalemekeza Mlengi wautatu ndi mlembi wa pangano, koma kumupanga iye fano loyera. Mafano nthawi zonse amalowa mumgwirizano ndi omwe amakwaniritsa njala yawo yodziwika chifukwa amafunikira otsatira awo momwe amawafunira. Zonse zimadalirana. Choncho, amapindula chifukwa cha zolinga zawo zadyera. Mbewu ya chowonadi yopezeka m'mawu oti chisomo ndi chisomo cha Mulungu ndichoti sitiyenera kuchipeza.

Ubwino wa Mulungu umagonjetsa zoipa

Chisomo sichilowa m’malo mwa uchimo monga chosiyana ndi lamulo kapena udindo uliwonse. Mulungu ndi wachisomo posatengera kuti uchimo ulipo. Mwa kuyankhula kwina, sichifuna kuchimwa kotsimikizirika kuti chisomo chipambane. M’malo mwake, chisomo chake chimapitirizabe ngakhale pamene pali uchimo. Chotero n’zoona kuti Mulungu samaleka kupatsa mwaufulu ubwino wake kwa zolengedwa Zake, ngakhale pamene sizikuyenerera. Kenako adzamkhululukira mkaziyo mwaufulu pa mtengo wa chitetezero chake chobweretsa chiyanjanitso.

Ngakhale tikachimwa, Mulungu amakhalabe wokhulupirika chifukwa sangadzikane, monga mmene Paulo ananenera kuti: “[...] ngati tili osakhulupirika, iye amakhalabe wokhulupirika.”2. Timoteo 2,13). Popeza kuti Mulungu nthaŵi zonse amakhala woona kwa iyemwini, amatisonyezanso chikondi chake ndipo amagwiritsitsa dongosolo lake lopatulika kwa ife, ngakhale pamene tikulitsutsa. Kulimbikira kwa chisomo chopatsidwa kwa ife kukuwonetsa kuzama kwa Mulungu pochita zabwino ku zolengedwa zake. “Pakuti Khristu anatifera ife oipa, pokhala ife chikhalire ofooka; koma Mulungu aonetsa chikondi chake kwa ife, kuti Khristu adatifera ife, pamene tinali ochimwa.” 5,6ndi; 8). Khalidwe lapadera la chisomo likhoza kumveka bwino lomwe pamene limaunikira mdima. Ndipo kotero ife makamaka timalankhula za chisomo mu nkhani ya uchimo.

Mulungu ndi wachisomo ngakhale kuti ndife ochimwa. Amasanduka kukhala wabwino mokhulupirika kwa zolengedwa zake ndipo amaumirirabe tsogolo lake lolonjeza. Tikhoza kuzindikira zimenezi mwa Yesu, amene potsiriza ntchito yake yochotsera machimo salola kuti apatutsidwe ku mphamvu iliyonse ya zoipa zimene zingamuwukire. Mphamvu zoipa sizingamulepheretse kupereka moyo wake chifukwa cha ife kuti tikhale ndi moyo. Kupweteka kapena kuzunzika kapena kunyozeka koipitsitsa sikunamulepheretse kutsatira tsogolo lake lopatulika, lozikidwa pa chikondi ndi kuyanjanitsa anthu ndi Mulungu. Ubwino wa Mulungu sufuna kuti zoipa zisinthe n’kukhala zabwino. Koma zikafika pa kuipa, ubwino umadziwa bwino lomwe choyenera kuchita: kuchigonjetsa, kuchigonjetsa ndi kuchigonjetsa. Kotero palibe chisomo chochuluka.

Chisomo: Chilamulo ndi Kumvera?

Kodi timaona bwanji lamulo la Chipangano Chakale ndi kumvera kwachikhristu mu Pangano Latsopano pankhani ya chisomo? Ngati tilingaliranso kuti pangano la Mulungu ndi lonjezo la mbali imodzi, yankho lake limakhala lodziŵika bwino lomwe. Komabe, kusunga lonjezano sikudalira kachitidwe kameneka. Pali njira ziwiri zokha pankhaniyi: kukhulupirira lonjezo lodzala ndi chikhulupiriro mwa Mulungu kapena ayi. Lamulo la Mose (Torah) linanena momveka bwino kwa Aisraeli tanthauzo la kudalira pangano la Mulungu mu gawo ili lisanakwaniritsidwe mtheradi lonjezo lomwe adapanga (i.e. asanabwere Yesu Khristu). Israeli Wamphamvuyonse, mwa chisomo, adavumbulutsa njira ya moyo mkati mwa pangano lake (pangano lakale).

Torah inaperekedwa kwa Israeli ndi Mulungu ngati mphatso yaulere. Ayenera kuwathandiza. Paulo anamutcha “mphunzitsi” (Agalatiya 3,24-25; Baibulo la anthu ambiri). Chotero iyenera kuwonedwa monga mphatso yachifundo ya chisomo yochokera kwa Israyeli Wamphamvuyonse. Lamulo linakhazikitsidwa mkati mwa dongosolo la pangano lakale, lomwe mu gawo lake lolonjezedwa (likuyembekezera kukwaniritsidwa kwake mu chifaniziro cha Khristu mu pangano latsopano) linali pangano la chisomo. Linali lolinganizidwa kuti litumikire pangano la ufulu wakudzisankhira wa Mulungu kudalitsa Israyeli ndi kulipanga kukhala mpainiya wa chisomo kwa anthu onse.

Mulungu amene amakhalabe woona kwa iyemwini amafuna kukhala ndi ubale womwewo wosakhala wa mgwirizano ndi anthu mu Pangano Latsopano, lomwe linakwaniritsidwa mwa Yesu Khristu. Amatipatsa madalitso onse a chitetezero chake ndi chiyanjanitso cha moyo, imfa, chiukiriro, ndi kukwera kumwamba. Timapatsidwa zabwino zonse za ufumu wake wamtsogolo. Kuonjezera apo, timapatsidwa mwayi woti Mzimu Woyera amakhala mwa ife. Koma kuperekedwa kwa chisomo ichi mu Pangano Latsopano kumafuna kuchitapo kanthu - zomwe Israeli adayeneranso kuonetsa: Chikhulupiriro (kukhulupirira). Koma mogwirizana ndi pangano latsopano, timakhulupirira kukwaniritsidwa kwake osati malonjezo ake.

Kodi tingayankhe bwanji pa ubwino wa Mulungu?

Kodi kuyankha kwathu ku chisomo chomwe tasonyezedwa chiyenera kukhala chiyani? Yankho ndi lakuti: “Moyo wokhulupirira lonjezo”. Ndiko kumatanthauza “kukhala m’chikhulupiriro”. Timapeza zitsanzo za moyo wotero mwa “oyera mtima” a m’Chipangano Chakale (Aheb. 11). Pali zotulukapo ngati munthu sakhala ndi chidaliro mu pangano lolonjezedwa kapena lokwaniritsidwa. Kusakhulupirira panganolo ndi mlembi wake kumatilepheretsa kutengeka kwake. Kusakhulupirira kwa Israyeli kwawalanda gwero la moyo wake, chakudya, moyo wabwino, ndi chonde. Kusakhulupirirana kunalepheretsa unansi wake ndi Mulungu kotero kuti anakanidwa kutengamo mbali m’chiyanjo chonse cha Wamphamvuyonse.

Monga mmene Paulo anafotokozera, pangano la Mulungu ndi losasinthika. Chifukwa chiyani? Chifukwa chakuti Wamphamvuyonse amam’mamatira ndi kumuchirikiza mokhulupirika, ngakhale zitakhala kuti zingam’wonongere ndalama zambiri. Mulungu sadzapatuka pa mau ake; sangakakamizidwe kukhala wachilendo kwa chilengedwe chake kapena anthu ake. Ngakhale titapanda kukhulupirira lonjezolo, sitingathe kumuchititsa kukhala wosakhulupirika. Izi n’zimene zimatanthauzidwa ngati Mulungu acitapo kanthu “chifukwa cha dzina lake”.

Malangizo ndi malamulo onse olumikizidwa ndi iye ayenera kutimvera mwa chikhulupiriro mwa Mulungu, kukoma mtima koperekedwa kwaulere ndi chisomo. Chisomo chimenecho chinakwaniritsidwa mu kudzipereka ndi vumbulutso la Mulungu mwini mwa Yesu. Kuti tisangalale nazo nkofunika kuvomereza chisomo cha Wamphamvuyonse ndipo osachikana kapena kunyalanyaza. Malangizo (malamulo) amene timawapeza m’Chipangano Chatsopano amafotokoza tanthauzo la anthu a Mulungu atakhazikitsa Pangano Latsopano kuti alandire chisomo cha Mulungu ndi kuchikhulupirira.

Kodi magwero a kumvera ndi ati?

Ndiye tingapeze kuti magwero a kumvera? Zimachokera ku kudalira kukhulupirika kwa Mulungu ku zolinga za pangano lake monga momwe zinakwaniritsidwira mwa Yesu Khristu. Mtundu umodzi wokha wa kumvera umene Mulungu akukhudzidwira ndi kumvera ku chikhulupiriro, kumene kumaonekera mu chikhulupiriro cha kukhazikika kwa Wamphamvuyonse, kukhulupirika ku mawu, ndi kukhulupirika kwa iyemwini (Aroma 1,5; 16,26). Kumvera ndiko kuyankha kwathu ku chisomo chake. Paulo akusiya chikayikiro chilichonse m’chimenechi—izi ziri zoonekeratu makamaka m’mawu ake akuti Aisrayeli sanalephere kutsatira zofunika zina zalamulo za Torah, koma chifukwa chakuti “anakana njira ya chikhulupiriro, nakhulupirira kuti kumvera kwawo kudzawatsogolera. ku cholinga chawo” (Aroma 9,32; Baibulo la uthenga wabwino). Mtumwi Paulo, Mfarisi womvera malamulo, anaona chowonadi chochititsa chidwi chakuti Mulungu sanafune kuti iye adzipezere chilungamo mwa kusunga lamulo. Poyerekeza ndi chilungamo chimene Mulungu anafuna kum’patsa mwa chisomo, poyerekezera ndi kutengamo mbali m’chilungamo cha Mulungu chimene chinaperekedwa kwa iye kudzera mwa Kristu, kukanakhala (kunena pang’ono!) 3,8-9).

M’zaka zonsezi chakhala chifuno cha Mulungu kugaŵa chilungamo chake ndi anthu ake monga mphatso. Chifukwa chiyani? Chifukwa iye ndi wachisomo (Afilipi 3,8-9). Ndiye kodi timapeza bwanji mphatso imeneyi? Podalira Mulungu kuti adzachita izi ndi kukhulupirira lonjezo lake kuti adzabweretsa izo kwa ife. Kumvera kumene Mulungu akufuna kuti tizichita kumalimbikitsidwa ndi chikhulupiriro, chiyembekezo ndi chikondi kwa iye. Maitanidwe ku kumvera opezeka m'malemba onse ndi malamulo opezeka mu mapangano akale ndi atsopano ndi achisomo. Ngati tikhulupirira malonjezo a Mulungu ndi kukhulupirira kuti adzakwaniritsidwa mwa Khristu ndiyeno mwa ife, tidzafuna kukhala mogwirizana ndi malonjezowo monga oona ndi oona. Moyo wosamvera sunakhazikike pa kudalira kapena mwina (wakadali) akukana kuvomereza zomwe walonjeza. Kumvera kokha kochokera ku chikhulupiriro, chiyembekezo ndi chikondi kumalemekeza Mulungu; pakuti kumvera kokhako kukuchitira umboni za amene Mulungu, monga adabvumbulutsidwa kwa ife mwa Yesu Khristu, ali.

Wamphamvuyonse adzapitirizabe kusonyeza kuti ndi wachifundo kwa ife kaya titalandira chisomo chake kapena kuchikana. Ubwino wake mosakaikira umasonyezedwa mwanjira ina m’chenicheni chakuti iye samavomereza kukana kwathu ku chisomo chake. M’njira imeneyi mkwiyo wa Mulungu umasonyezedwa pamene iye nayenso akutsutsa “ayi” wathu kwa iye ndi “ayi” kuti atsimikizire “inde” wake woperekedwa kwa ife m’chifaniziro cha Kristu;2. Akorinto 1,19). Ndipo “ayi” wamphamvuyonse ali ndi mphamvu zongofanana ndi “inde” wake chifukwa ndi mawu a “inde” wake.

Palibe kupatula chisomo!

Ndikofunikira kuzindikira kuti Mulungu sachita zosiyana ndi zolinga Zake zapamwamba ndi malamulo opatulika kwa anthu ake. Chifukwa cha kukhulupirika kwake, iye sadzataya mtima pa ife. M’malo mwake, amatikonda mwangwiro – mu ungwiro wa Mwana wake. Mulungu akufuna kutilemekeza kuti timukhulupirire ndi kumukonda ndi mtima wathu wonse komanso kuti tiziwonetsa izi mwangwiro m'njira yathu yamoyo mothandizidwa ndi chisomo chake.
