“Kumwamba” monga liwu la m’Baibulo limasonyeza malo osankhidwa a Mulungu, komanso tsogolo lamuyaya la ana onse oomboledwa a Mulungu. “Kukhala kumwamba” kumatanthauza: kukhala ndi Mulungu mwa Khristu kumene kulibenso imfa, kulira, kulira ndi zowawa. Kumwamba kumanenedwa kukhala “chisangalalo chamuyaya,” “chisangalalo,” “mtendere” ndi “chilungamo cha Mulungu”. (1. Mafumu 8,27-30; 5. Mose 26,15; Mateyu 6,9; Machitidwe a Atumwi 7,55-56; Yohane 14,2-3; Chivumbulutso 21,3-4; 22,1-5; 2. Peter 3,13).

Kodi timapita kumwamba tikamwalira?

Ena amaseka lingaliro la "kupita kumwamba". Komabe Paulo akunena kuti tinaikidwa kale kumwamba (Aef 2,6) - ndipo angakonde kusiya dziko lapansi kukakhala ndi Khristu kumwamba (Afilipi 1,23). Kupita kumwamba sikusiyana kwambiri ndi zimene Paulo ananena poyamba paja. Tingakonde njira zina zolankhulira, koma si nkhani yodzudzula kapena kunyoza Akhristu ena.

Anthu ambiri akamakamba zakumwamba, amagwiritsa ntchito liwu lofanana ndi chipulumutso. Mwachitsanzo, alaliki achikristu ena amafunsa kuti, "Mukutsimikiza kuti ngati mutamwalira usiku uno mupita kumwamba?" Mfundo yeniyeni pamilandu iyi sikuti abwera liti kapena kuti - akungofunsa ngati ali otsimikiza za chipulumutso chawo.

Anthu ena amaganiza zakumwamba ngati malo omwe kuli mitambo, azeze, ndi misewu yokutidwa ndi golide. Koma zinthu zotere sizili gawo lakumwamba kwenikweni - ndi mawu omwe amawonetsa mtendere, kukongola, ulemerero, ndi zinthu zina zabwino. Amayesa kugwiritsa ntchito mawu ochepa kutanthauzira zenizeni zauzimu.

Kumwamba ndi kwauzimu, osati kuthupi. Ndi "malo" omwe Mulungu amakhala. Otsatira asayansi azabodza anganene kuti Mulungu amakhala kumalo ena. Alipo paliponse pamiyeso yonse, koma "kumwamba" ndi komwe akukhalamo. [Ndikupepesa chifukwa chakusalongosoka kwa mawu anga. Akatswiri a zaumulungu atha kukhala ndi mawu olondola pazomwezi, koma ndikhulupilira kuti nditha kufotokoza lingaliro losavuta]. Mfundo ndiyakuti: kukhala "kumwamba" kumatanthauza kukhala pamaso pa Mulungu mwachangu komanso mwapadera.

Lemba limafotokoza momveka bwino kuti tidzakhala komwe kuli Mulungu (Yohane 14,3; Afilipi 1,23). Njira ina yofotokozera ubale wathu wapamtima ndi Mulungu pa nthawi ino ndi yakuti “tidzaonana naye maso ndi maso” ( NW )1. Korinto 13,12; Chivumbulutso 22,4; 1. Johannes 3,2). Chimenecho ndi chithunzi chomwe tili naye pafupi kwambiri momwe tingathere. Choncho ngati titamvetsa kuti mawu akuti “kumwamba” ndi kumene kuli Mulungu, sikulakwa kunena kuti Akhristu adzakhala kumwamba m’nthawi imene ikubwerayi. Tidzakhala ndi Mulungu, ndipo kukhala ndi Mulungu moyenerera kumatchedwa “kumwamba”.

M’masomphenya, Yohane anaona kukhalapo kwa Mulungu, kumene pomalizira pake kudzafika pa dziko lapansi—osati dziko lamakonoli, koma “dziko latsopano” ( Chivumbulutso 2 )1,3). Zilibe kanthu kaya ‘tibwere’ [kupita] kumwamba kapena iye “adza” kwa ife. Mulimonse mmene zingakhalire, tidzakhala kumwamba kosatha, pamaso pa Mulungu, ndipo kudzakhala kwabwino modabwitsa. Momwe timafotokozera moyo wa m'badwo ulinkudza - malinga ngati kulongosola kwathu kuli kochokera m'Baibulo - sikusintha mfundo yakuti tili ndi chikhulupiriro mwa Khristu monga Ambuye ndi Mpulumutsi wathu.

Zimene Mulungu watikonzera n’zoposa zimene sitingathe kuziganizira. Ngakhale m'moyo uno, chikondi cha Mulungu chimapitilira kumvetsetsa kwathu (Aefeso 3,19). Mtendere wa Mulungu ndi woposa nzeru zathu (Afilipi 4,7) ndipo chimwemwe chake n’choti sitingathe kuchifotokoza m’mawu (1. Peter 1,8). Ndiye kodi n’zosatheka kulongosola mmene kudzakhala kwabwino kukhala ndi moyo kosatha ndi Mulungu?

Olemba a m'Baibulo sanatifotokozere zambiri. Koma chinthu chimodzi tikudziwa motsimikiza - chidzakhala chokumana nacho chopambana kwambiri chomwe tidakhalapo nacho. Zili bwino kuposa zojambula zokongola kwambiri, zabwino kuposa chakudya chokoma kwambiri, kuposa masewera osangalatsa kwambiri, kuposa momwe timamvera komanso zokumana nazo zomwe tidakhalapo nazo. Ndibwino kuposa chilichonse padziko lapansi. Zikhala zazikulu
Khalani mphotho!
