Hōʻuluʻulu mākou i ka Ascension

400 ua mahalo kākou iā Christi Himmelfahrt.jpg ʻO ka Ascension Day kekahi o nā hanana nui i loko o ka kalena Kalikiano e like me ka Kalikimaka, ʻo ka Pōʻalima a me ka Pōkole. Maʻa paha mākou i ka mea nui o kēia hanana. Ma hope o ka trauma o ke keʻa a me ka lanakila o ke alahouana, e like ka lua. Akā, eia kuhi hewa. ʻAʻole noho ʻo Iesū i hoʻihoʻi ma kahi mau lā he 40, a hoʻi i ka ʻāina palekana i ka lani, i kēia manawa ua hana ʻia ka hana ma ka honua. ʻO Iesū i ala ʻia a e noho mau loa ia i kona piha me ke kanaka a ke Akua i hoʻokō paʻa e like me kā mākou kākoʻo (1 Timoteo 2,5; 1 Ioane 2,1).

Hana i nā Mana 1,9: 12. Holo aku ia i ka lani, aia ʻelua mau kānaka me ka ʻaʻahu keʻokeʻo me nā haumāna nāna e ʻōlelo: He aha kāu e kū nei ma laila e nānā ana i ka lewa? E hoi mai ana oia me kou ike ana iaia e hele i ka lani. Ua maopopo loa i ʻelua mau mea. Iesū ma ka lani ke hele mai nei ia.

Ma nā Epeso 2,6 ua kākau ʻo Paulo: "Ua hoʻāla ke Akua iā mākou a hoʻokomo iā mākou i ka lani iā ​​Kristo Iesū. Ua lohe mākou i nā manawa he nui" iā Kristo. kanu a kū ʻia, akā aia me ia i ka lani ".

Ma kāna palapala i ka Pōmaʻomaʻi o Epeso, ua haʻi aku ʻo John Stott: "ʻAʻole i kākau ʻo Paulo no Kristo, akā no kā mākou. Na ke Akua ia i hoʻokomo iā Kristo me Kristo. ʻO ka hui pū o ka poʻe kānaka o ke Akua me Kristo ke kumu maopopo loa ».

I Kolosa 3,1: 4, ua hoʻohālikelike mai ʻo Paulo i kēia ʻoiaʻiʻo:
«Ua make ʻoe a ua huna ʻia kou ola me Kristo me ke Akua. A i ka wā e hōʻike ʻia ai kou ola, e hōʻike ʻia pū ʻoe me ia ma ka nani, e like me kou ola ʻana. "Ma Kristo" ka mea e ola i nā honua ʻelua: ka kino a me ka ʻuhane. ʻAʻole hiki iā mākou ke hoʻomaopopo i kēia manawa, akā ua ʻōlelo ʻo Paul heʻoiaʻiʻo nō ia. Ke hoʻi mai nei ʻo Kristo e ʻike mākou i ka piha piha o kā mākou mea ʻike hou. ʻAʻole makemake ke Akua e haʻalele iā mākou i kā mākou ponoʻī (Ioane 14,18), akā me ka launa pū me Kristo ua makemake ʻo ia e kahele pū mai i nā mea āpau me mākou.

Ua hui pū mai ke Akua me mākou e like me mākou e hoʻokomo ai i ka pilina a Kristo me ka Makua a me ka ʻUhane Hemolele. I loko o Kristo, ke Keiki a ke Akua mau loa, he mau keiki aloha mākou ma kona makemake. Hoʻolaha mākou i ka lā ʻo Ascension. ʻO kēia kahi manawa maikaʻi e hoʻomanaʻo ai i kēia lono maikaʻi.
