Gwiritsani ntchito mphatso ya nthawi

gwiritsani ntchito mphatso ya nthawi yathuPa September 20, Ayuda ankachita chikondwerero cha Chaka Chatsopano, chomwe chinali ndi matanthauzo ambiri. Choncho munthu amakondwerera chiyambi cha kuzungulira kwa chaka, kukumbukira kulengedwa kwa Adamu ndi Hava komanso kukumbukira kulengedwa kwa chilengedwe, chomwe chimaphatikizapo chiyambi cha nthawi. Pamene ndinkawerenga za nthawi, ndinakumbukira kuti nthawi ilinso ndi matanthauzo angapo. Chimodzi mwa izo ndi chakuti nthawi ndi chuma chomwe mabiliyoni ndi opemphapempha ali nacho. Tonse timakhala ndi masekondi 86.400 patsiku. Koma popeza sitingathe kuisunga (nthawi siingapitirire kapena kuchotsedwa), funso likubuka: "Kodi timagwiritsira ntchito bwanji nthawi yomwe tili nayo?"

Mtengo wa nthawi

Podziwa kufunika kwa nthawi, Paulo analimbikitsa Akhristu kuti ‘aziwombola nthawi’ (Aef. 5,16). Tisanaone tanthauzo la vesili, ndikufuna ndikugawireni ndakatulo yomwe ikufotokoza kufunika kwa nthawi:

Dziwani kufunika kwa nthawi

Kuti mudziwe phindu la chaka, funsani wophunzira amene walephera mayeso ake omaliza.
Kuti mudziwe kufunika kwa mwezi, funsani mayi amene wabereka mwana asanabadwe.
Kuti mudziwe kufunika kwa sabata, funsani mkonzi wa nyuzipepala yamlungu ndi mlungu.
Kuti mudziwe kufunika kwa ola limodzi, funsani okonda kudikirira kuti awonane.
Kuti mudziwe phindu la miniti, funsani munthu amene waphonya sitima, basi, kapena ndege.
Kuti mudziwe mtengo wachiwiri, funsani munthu amene wapulumuka ngozi.
Kuti mudziwe phindu la millisecond, funsani munthu yemwe adapambana mendulo ya siliva pamasewera a Olimpiki. Nthawi sikuyembekezera aliyense.
Sonkhanitsani mphindi iliyonse yomwe mwatsala, chifukwa ndiyofunika.
Gawani ndi winawake wapadera ndipo zidzakhala zofunikira kwambiri.

(Wolemba sakudziwika)

Kodi nthawi imagulidwa bwanji?

Ndakatulo iyi ikufikitsa ku mfundo mogwirizana ndi nthawi yomwe Paulo akupanga mofanana kwambiri mu Aefeso 5. Pali mau awiri mu Chipangano Chatsopano amene anamasuliridwa kuchokera ku Chigriki monga kugula. Limodzi ndi agorazo, lomwe limatanthauza kugula zinthu pamsika wabwinobwino (agora). Wina ndi exagorazo, kutanthauza kugula zinthu kunja kwake. Paulo akugwiritsa ntchito liwu lakuti exagorazo mu Aef. 5,15-16 ndi kutilangiza kuti: “Samalani ndi machitidwe anu; Usachite mopanda nzeru, koma yesetsani kukhala wanzeru. Tengani mwayi uliwonse kuti muchite zabwino munthawi yoyipayi »[New Life, SMC, 2011]. Mu kumasulira kwa Luther kwa 1912 akuti "kugula nthawi." Zikuwoneka ngati Paulo akufuna kutilimbikitsa kuti tigule nthawi kunja kwa msika wamba.

Sitidziwa bwino mawu oti "kugula". Mu bizinesi bizinesi imamveka ngati "kugula chopanda kanthu" kapena potanthauza "kukhazikika". Ngati munthu sangakwanitse kulipira ngongole zawo, amatha kupanga mgwirizano wodzilembera ngati antchito a munthu amene adamukongoletsa mpaka ngongolezo zitaperekedwa. Ntchito zawo zitha kuthetsedwanso msanga ngati wina walipira ngongole m'malo mwawo. Wobwereketsa atagulidwa kunja kwa ntchito motere, njirayi idatchedwa "kuyambitsa kapena kugula".

Zinthu zamtengo wapatali zitha kutulutsidwa - monga tikudziwira kuchokera kumalonda lero. Kumbali imodzi, Paulo akutiuza kuti tigwiritse ntchito kapena kuwombola nthawi. Kumbali inayi, kuchokera pamalingaliro a malangizo a Paulo, tikuwona kuti tiyenera kukhala otsatira a Yesu. Paulo akutiuza kuti timvetsetse kuti tiyenera kuganizira za Iye amene anatigulira nthawi. Kukangana kwake sikutaya nthawi kuchita zinthu zina zomwe zimatilepheretsa kuyang'ana kwa Yesu ndi ntchito yomwe adatiitanira.

Pansipa pali ndemanga ya Aefeso 5,16 kuchokera mu Voliyumu 1 ya »Wuest's Word Studies in the Greek New Testament:

“Gulani” amachokera ku liwu lachi Greek lakuti exagorazo (ἐξαγοραζω), ndipo amatanthauza “kugula”. Mu gawo lapakati lomwe limagwiritsidwa ntchito apa limatanthauza "kudzigulira nokha kapena phindu lanu." Kulankhula mophiphiritsa, kumatanthauza “kugwiritsa ntchito mpata uliwonse wanzeru ndi woyera pochita zabwino”, kotero kuti khama ndi kuchita zabwino ndizo njira zolipirira zomwe timapezamo nthawi “(Thayer). "Nthawi" si chronos (χρονος), mwachitsanzo, "nthawi yotere", koma kairos (καιρος), "nthawi yomwe iyenera kuonedwa ngati nthawi yokhazikika, yanthawi yake, yanthawi yake komanso yabwino". Munthu sayenera kuyesetsa kugwiritsa ntchito nthawiyo mmene angathere, koma kuti agwiritse ntchito mwayi umene wapezeka.

Popeza nthawi nthawi zambiri sitingawone ngati chinthu chomwe chingagulidwe kwenikweni, timamvetsetsa mawu a Paulo mophiphiritsira, omwe makamaka akuyenera kuti tigwiritse ntchito bwino zomwe tikukhalamo. Tikachita izi, nthawi yathu idzakhala ndi tanthauzo komanso tanthauzo komanso "kulipira".

Nthawi ndi mphatso yochokera kwa Mulungu

Monga mbali ya chilengedwe cha Mulungu, nthawi ndi mphatso kwa ife. Ena ali ndi zambiri ndipo ena ali ndi zochepa. Chifukwa cha kupita patsogolo kwa zamankhwala, chibadwa chabwino, ndi madalitso a Mulungu, ambiri a ife tidzakhala ndi moyo kupitirira zaka 90 ndipo ena kupitirira 100. Posachedwapa tinamva za mwamuna wina ku Indonesia amene anamwalira ali ndi zaka 146! Zilibe kanthu kuti Mulungu watipatsa nthawi yochuluka bwanji, chifukwa Yesu ndi Mbuye wa nthawi. Kupyolera mu Kubadwanso Kwinakwake, Mwana Wamuyaya wa Mulungu anabwera kuchokera ku umuyaya kupita ku nthawi. Chifukwa chake, Yesu amakumana ndi nthawi yolengedwa mosiyana ndi ife. Nthawi yathu yolengedwa ili ndi nthawi yochepa, pamene nthawi ya Mulungu kunja kwa chilengedwe ilibe malire. Nthawi ya Mulungu sinagawidwe m’zigawo, monga momwe zilili ndi ife, m’zaka zakale, zamakono ndi zam’tsogolo. Nthawi ya Mulungu nayonso ili ya khalidwe losiyana kotheratu - mtundu wa nthawi umene sitingathe kuumvetsa. Chimene tingachite (ndipo tiyenera) kuchita ndicho kukhala m’nthaŵi yathu ndi chidaliro chotsimikizirika chakuti tidzakumana ndi Mlengi ndi Mombolo wathu m’nthaŵi yake, kosatha.

Musagwiritse ntchito molakwika kapena kuwononga nthawi

Tikamayankhula mofanizira za nthawi ndikunena zinthu monga "osataya nthawi" timatanthauza kuti tingataye kugwiritsa ntchito bwino nthawi yathu yamtengo wapatali. Izi zimachitika tikalola wina kapena china kutitengera nthawi yathu pazinthu zopanda phindu kwa ife. Izi zikufotokozedwa mophiphiritsa, tanthauzo la zomwe Paulo akufuna kunena kwa ife: "Gulani nthawi". Tsopano akutilangiza kuti tisamagwiritse ntchito molakwika kapena kuwononga nthawi yathu m'njira zomwe zingatilepheretse kupereka zomwe zili zofunika kwa Mulungu komanso kwa ife Akhristu.

M’nkhani ino, popeza ili ponena za ‘kuwombola nthaŵi,’ tiyenera kukumbukira kuti nthaŵi yathu inayamba kugulidwa ndi kupezedwanso mwa chikhululukiro cha Mulungu kupyolera mwa Mwana wake. Tikatero timapitiriza kuwombola nthaŵi mwa kugwiritsira ntchito bwino nthaŵi yathu kuthandizira kukulitsa unansi wathu ndi Mulungu ndi wina ndi mnzake. Kugula nthawi kumeneku ndi mphatso ya Mulungu kwa ife. Pamene Paulo akutiuza ku Aefeso 5,15 amatilangiza kuti “tiyang’ane mosamalitsa pa moyo wathu, osati monga opanda nzeru, koma monga anzeru,” iye amatilangiza kugwiritsira ntchito mipata imene nthaŵi imatipatsa kulemekeza Mulungu.

Ntchito yathu "pakati pa nthawi"

Mulungu watipatsa nthawi yoti tiyende mowunika kwake, kuti titenge nawo gawo muutumiki wa Mzimu Woyera ndi Yesu popititsa patsogolo ntchitoyi. Kuti tichite izi, tapatsidwa "nthawi pakati pa nthawi" ya Kubwera koyamba ndi kwachiwiri kwa Khristu. Cholinga chathu panthawiyi ndikuthandiza anthu ena pakufufuza kwawo ndi kumudziwa Mulungu ndikuwathandiza kukhala ndi moyo wachikhulupiriro ndi wachikondi, komanso ndikutsimikiza kuti Mulungu pamapeto pake chilengedwe chonse chagula zonse, zomwe zimaphatikizaponso nthawi. Ndikupemphera kuti ife mu GCI tigule nthawi yomwe Mulungu watipatsa mwa kukhala mokhulupirika ndi kulengeza uthenga wabwino wa chiyanjanitso cha Mulungu mwa Khristu.

Pothokoza mphatso za Mulungu kuyambira kalekale,
