Kodi tikukhala m'masiku otsiriza?

299 ife tikukhala mu masiku otsirizaMukudziwa kuti uthenga wabwino ndi uthenga wabwino. Koma kodi mumaona kuti ndi nkhani yabwino? Mofanana ndi ambiri a inu, ndaphunzitsidwa mbali yaikulu ya moyo wanga kuti tikukhala m’masiku otsiriza. Izi zinandipatsa lingaliro la dziko limene linkayang’ana zinthu m’lingaliro lakuti mapeto a dziko monga tikudziŵira lerolino abwera m’zaka zochepa chabe. Koma ngati ndikanachita bwino, sindikadapulumuka Chisautso Chachikulu.

Mwamwayi, ichi sichilinso cholinga cha chikhulupiriro changa chachikhristu kapena maziko a ubale wanga ndi Mulungu. Koma kukhulupirira chinthu kwa nthawi yaitali, kumakhala kovuta kuchichotseratu. Mawonedwe amtunduwu a dziko lapansi amatha kukhala osokoneza bongo, kotero kuti munthu amakonda kuwona chilichonse chomwe chimachitika kudzera m'diso la kutanthauzira kwapadera kwa zochitika za nthawi yotsiriza. Ndamvapo anthu okhazikika pa maulosi a nthawi yotsiriza akhala akutchedwa moseketsa kuti apocaholics.

Kunena zoona, iyi si nkhani yoseketsa. Kaonedwe ka dziko kotereku kangakhale kovulaza. Muzochitika zovuta kwambiri, zingayambitse anthu kugulitsa chirichonse, kusiya maubwenzi onse ndikupita kumalo osungulumwa akuyembekezera apocalypse.

Ambiri aife sitingapite patali chotero. Koma chikhulupiriro chakuti moyo monga momwe tikudziwira kuti udzatha posachedwapa kungachititse anthu kulemba zowawa ndi zowawa zowazungulira ndi kuganiza, ndi chiyani? Amayang'ana chilichonse chowazungulira mopanda chiyembekezo ndipo amakhala owonerera komanso oweruza osavuta kuposa omwe akugwira nawo ntchito kuti zinthu zikhale bwino. Anthu ena omwe ali ndi vuto laulosi amafika pokana kuthandizira anthu chifukwa amakhulupirira kuti mwina angachedwetse nthawi yamapeto. Ena amanyalanyaza thanzi lawo ndi la ana awo, kapena kudera nkhaŵa za chuma chawo, poganiza kuti palibe tsogolo limene angakonzekere.

Iyi si njira yotsatirira Yesu Khristu. Iye anatiitana ife kuti tikhale zounikira pa dziko lapansi. N’zomvetsa chisoni kuti magetsi ena amene Akhristu amawagwiritsa ntchito amafanana ndi ma helikoputala a apolisi amene amayendayenda m’derali pofuna kufufuza za umbanda. Yesu amafuna kuti ife tikhale zounikira m’lingaliro lakuti tingathandize kupanga dziko lapansi kukhala malo abwino kwa anthu otizungulira.

Ndikufuna kukupatsani malingaliro ena. Bwanji osakhulupirira kuti tikukhala m’masiku oyambirira m’malo mwa masiku otsiriza?

Yesu sanatipatse ife ulamuliro wolengeza chiwonongeko ndi mdima. Anatipatsa uthenga wopatsa chiyembekezo. Anatipempha kuti tiziuza dziko kuti moyo ukungoyamba kumene m’malo mongolembedwa. Uthenga wabwino umazungulira iye, yemwe iye ali, zomwe anachita, ndi zomwe zingatheke chifukwa cha izo. Pamene Yesu anadzimasula yekha m’manda ake, zonse zinasintha. Anapanga zinthu zonse kukhala zatsopano. Mwa iye Mulungu anawombola ndi kuyanjanitsa zonse zakumwamba ndi zapadziko lapansi (Akolose 1,16-17).

Chochitika chochititsa chidwi chimenechi chikufotokozedwa mwachidule m'mavesi odziwika bwino a mu Uthenga Wabwino wa Yohane. Tsoka ilo, ndime iyi ndi yodziwika bwino kwambiri kotero kuti mphamvu yake yazimiririka. Koma taonaninso vesilo. Igayeni pang’onopang’ono ndi kulola mfundo zodabwitsa kuti zilowerere m’kati: “Pakuti Mulungu anakonda dziko lapansi kotero, kuti anapatsa Mwana wake wobadwa yekha, kuti yense wakukhulupirira Iye asatayike, koma akhale nawo moyo wosatha (Yohane. 3,16).

Uthenga Wabwino siuthenga wa chiwonongeko. Yesu anafotokoza momveka bwino zimenezi m’vesi lotsatira: “Pakuti Mulungu sanatume Mwana wake kudziko lapansi kuti adzaweruze dziko lapansi, koma kuti dziko lapansi likapulumutsidwe mwa iye.” ( Yoh. 3,17).

Mulungu akufuna kupulumutsa, osati kuwononga, dziko. N’chifukwa chake moyo uyenera kusonyeza chiyembekezo ndi chimwemwe, osati kukayikakayika kapena kuchita mantha. Yesu anatipatsa chidziwitso chatsopano cha tanthauzo la kukhala munthu. M’malo modziloŵetsa m’mitima yathu, tingakhale ndi moyo wopindulitsa ndi womangirira m’dziko lino. Nthawi zonse tikapeza mpata, tiyenera kuchitira zabwino aliyense, makamaka okhulupirira anzathu (Agalatiya 6,10). Kuvutika ku Dafur, mavuto omwe akubwera chifukwa cha kusintha kwa nyengo, nkhondo zomwe zikuchitika ku Middle East ndi mavuto ena onse omwe ali pafupi ndi kwathu ndi bizinesi yathu. Monga okhulupirira, tiyenera kusamalana ndi kuchita zomwe tingathe kuti tithandize - m'malo mokhala pambali ndikudandaula za ife eni, takuuzani.

Pamene Yesu anaukitsidwa kwa akufa, zonse zinasintha – kwa anthu onse – kaya akudziwa kapena ayi. Ntchito yathu ndikuchita zomwe tingathe kuti anthu adziwe. Kufikira dziko loipali litatha, tidzakumana ndi chitsutso ndipo nthaŵi zina ngakhale chizunzo. Koma tidakali m’masiku oyambirira. Polingalira za umuyaya umene uli m’tsogolo, zaka zikwi ziŵiri zoyambirira za Chikristu zimenezi zangokhala kuphethira kwa diso.

Nthaŵi zonse zinthu zikafika poipa, m’pomveka kuti anthu amaganiza kuti akukhala m’masiku otsiriza. Koma zoopsa zapadziko lapansi zabwera ndipo zapita kwa zaka zikwi ziwiri, ndipo Akhristu onse omwe anali otsimikiza kuti akukhala m'masiku otsiriza anali olakwa nthawi zonse. Mulungu sanatipatse njira yotsimikizirika yoti tikhale olondola.

Koma anatipatsa uthenga wabwino wopatsa chiyembekezo, uthenga wabwino umene uyenera kudziwitsidwa kwa anthu onse nthawi zonse. Tili ndi mwayi wokhala ndi moyo m’masiku oyambirira a chilengedwe chatsopano chimene chinayamba pamene Yesu anaukitsidwa kwa akufa.
