Gwiritsani ntchito bwino mwayi uliwonse

Kodi simukufuna mutatambasula nthawi yanu? Kapena, ngakhale bwino, tembenuzani nthawi kuti mugwiritse ntchito bwino kachiwiri? Koma tonse tikudziwa kuti umu si mmene nthawi imagwirira ntchito. Zimangopitirirabe, ziribe kanthu momwe tingazigwiritsire ntchito kapena kuziwononga. Sitingathe kuwombola nthawi imene yatayidwa, ndiponso sitingathe kupezanso nthawi imene tinaigwiritsa ntchito molakwika. Mwina ndicho chifukwa chake mtumwi Paulo analangiza Akristu kuti: Chotero tsopano yang’anani mosamalitsa mmene mukuyendera moyo wanu, osati monga opanda nzeru, koma monga anzeru, ndipo muwombole nyengo [a. Mwachitsanzo .: amagwiritsa ntchito bwino mpata uliwonse]; chifukwa ndi nthawi yoyipa. Chifukwa chake musakhale opusa, koma zindikirani chifuniro cha Yehova nchiyani (Aef. 5,15-17 ndi).

Paulo ankafuna kuti Akhristu a ku Efeso azigwiritsa ntchito nthawi iliyonse kuti agwiritse ntchito nthawi yawo mogwirizana ndi chifuniro cha Mulungu. Mumzinda waukulu ngati Efeso, mudali zododometsa zambiri. Efeso anali likulu la chigawo cha Roma cha Asia. Unali nyumba ya chimodzi mwazinthu zisanu ndi ziwiri zakale - Kachisi wa Atemi. Monga m'mizinda yayikulu masiku ano, panali zambiri zomwe zikuchitika mumzinda uno. Koma Paulo adakumbutsa akhristu kuti adayitanidwa kuti adzakhale manja ndi mikono ya Khristu mumzinda wopanda umulunguwu.

Tonse tili ndi maluso ndi zothandizira, tonsefe timapezeka maola 24 patsiku. Koma ndife akapolo a Ambuye ndi Mbuye wathu Yesu Khristu, ndipo izi zimapangitsa nthawi yathu padziko lapansi kukhala yapadera. Nthawi yathu itha kugwiritsidwa ntchito kulemekeza Mulungu mmalo mokhutiritsa kudzikonda kwathu.

Titha kugwiritsa ntchito nthawi yathu yogwirira ntchito kuti tipatse olemba ntchito ntchito zathu zabwino kwambiri, ngati kuti tikugwirira ntchito Khristu (Akol. 3,22) m'malo mongolandira malipiro, kapena choipitsitsacho, kuwabera. Tikhoza kugwiritsa ntchito nthawi yathu yaulere kuti timange ndi kulimbitsa maubwenzi, ndi kukonzanso thanzi lathu ndi moyo wathu wamaganizo, m'malo mogwiritsa ntchito zizolowezi zoipa, zoletsedwa, kapena zowononga tokha. Tikhoza kugwiritsa ntchito mausiku athu kuti tipume m’malo mosangalala. Tingagwilitsile nchito nthawi imene tili nayo pophunzila kudzikonza, kuthandiza anthu ovutika, kapena kuthandiza m’malo mongogona pabedi.

Inde, tiyenera kukhala ndi nthawi yolambira Mlengi ndi Mpulumutsi wathu. Timamumvera, timamutamanda, timamuthokoza ndikumabweretsa mantha, nkhawa, nkhawa ndi kukayikira pamaso pake. Sitifunikira kuwononga nthawi kudandaula, kukalipira, kapena miseche za ena. M'malo mwake, tikhoza kuwapempherera. Titha kulipira zoyipa ndi zabwino, ndikupereka mavuto athu kwa Mulungu ndikupewa zilonda zam'mimba. Titha kukhala motere chifukwa Khristu amakhala mwa ife, chifukwa Mulungu walunjika chisomo chake kwa ife kudzera mwa Khristu. Mwa Khristu titha kupanga masiku athu kukhala chinthu chamtengo wapatali, china chake chofunikira.

Paulo anali kukhala m'ndende pomwe adalembera kalata Akhristu ku Efeso, ndipo samatha kudziwa mphindi iliyonse yomwe yadutsa. Inde, chifukwa Khristu adakhala mwa iye, sanalole kuti kumangidwa kwake kumulepheretse kugwiritsa ntchito mwayi uliwonse. Pogwiritsa ntchito kumangidwa kwake ngati mwayi, analemba makalata kumipingo ndikutsutsa Akhristu kuti adziwe momwe ayenera kukhalira mogwirizana ndi chifuniro cha Mulungu.

Malo athu okhalamo masiku ano akuwonetsa zonyansa zambiri komanso zonyansa zomwe Akhristu adakumana nazo nthawi ya Paulo. Koma Mpingo, akutikumbutsa, kuti ndi malo owala mu dziko lamdima. Mpingo ndi dera lomwe mphamvu ya uthenga wabwino imachitikira ndikugawana ndi ena. Mamembala ake ndi mchere wapadziko lapansi, chizindikiro chotsimikizika cha chiyembekezo m'dziko lapansi lolakalaka chipulumutso.

Panali bambo wachichepere yemwe adakwanitsa kukwera bungwe ndipo pamapeto pake adasankhidwa kuti alowe m'malo mwa purezidenti wakale, wokwiya. Masiku angapo asanayambe ntchito, mnyamatayo anapita kwa purezidenti wakale ndikumufunsa ngati angamupatse upangiri.

Mawu awiri, adatero. Zosankha zolondola! Mnyamatayo adafunsa: Mumakumana nawo bwanji awa? Mkulu uja adati: Zimatenga chidziwitso. Munapeza bwanji? anafunsa mnyamatayo? Mkulu uja adayankha: Zosankha zolakwika.

Mulole zolakwitsa zathu zonse zitipangitse ife kukhala anzeru chifukwa timakhulupirira Ambuye. Mulole miyoyo yathu ikhale yofanana ndi ya Khristu. Mulole nthawi yathu ibweretse ulemerero kwa Mulungu pamene tikuchita chifuniro chake mdziko lino lapansi.
