E hele mai e like meʻoe!

152 ua hele wale mai ʻoe i ke ala āu

Ua hoʻohana pinepine ʻia ʻo Billy Graham i kahi ʻōlelo e hōʻeuʻeu ai i ka poʻe e ʻae i ka hoʻōla ʻana iā mākou ma loko o Iesū: Ua ʻōlelo ʻo ia, "E hele wale mai ʻoe." He mea hoʻomanaʻo e ʻike nei ke Akua i nā mea a pau: ʻo kā mākou maikaʻi a maikaʻi loa, akā aloha ʻo ia iā mākou. ʻO ka kāhea "e hele wale mai e like me ʻoe" he hoʻohālike o nā ʻōlelo a ka lunaʻōlelo a Paulo.

«No ka mea, ua make ʻo Kristo no mākou i ka manawa i nawaliwali ai mākou. Ano, make ole kekahi kanaka no ka pono; no ka maikaʻi hoʻi, ke kau nei ʻo ia i kona ola. Aka, hoike mai ke Akua i kona aloha ia kakou no ka mea i make ai ʻo Kristo no mākou i ka wā e lawehala nei mākou » (Roma 5,6-8).

ʻAʻole noʻonoʻo ka poʻe he nui i kēia lā e pili ana i ka hewa. Manaʻo nui ko mākou ʻano kuʻuna a me nā modmodern e pili ana i ka manaʻo o ka "palupalu", "hopelessness" a "mau ʻole ʻole", a ʻike lākou i ke kumu o kā lākou hakakā kūloko i loko o kahi manaʻo o ka haʻahaʻa. Hiki iā lākou ke hoʻāʻo e aloha iā lākou iho i ala ke lilo i aloha ai, akā ʻoi aku ka like ʻole, ke manaʻo nei lākou ua pau loa, haki, a ʻaʻole lākou e hoka hou. ʻAʻole ka wehewehe mai ke Akua iā mākou ma o kā mākou hemahema a me nā hemahema; ʻike ʻo ia i ko mākou ola holoʻokoʻa. ʻO ka maikaʻi aʻe e like me ka maikaʻi a ke aloha nui ʻo ia iā mākou. ʻOiai ʻaʻole paʻakikī ia he aloha a ke Akua iā mākou, ʻike pinepine mākou i ka paʻakikī i ka ʻae ʻana i kēia aloha. Ua ʻike mākou i ka hohonu o ka pono o kēia aloha.

I nā makahiki 15, ua hakakā ʻo Martin Luther i kahi hakakā paʻakikī e alakaʻi i ke ola kūpono ʻole. ʻIke mau ia me ka nele. I kona hōʻeha, ua loaʻa iā ia ke kūʻokoʻa i ka lokomaikaʻi o ke Akua. A hiki i ia wā, ʻike ʻo Luther me kāna mau hewa - a loaʻa wale ka minamina - ʻaʻole i ka ʻike me Iesū, ke Keiki aloha a aloha a ke Akua, ka mea i lawe aku i nā hewa o ke ao nei, a me nā hewa o Lot.

Ua aloha ke Akua iā ʻoe. Inā paha e inaina ke Akua i ka hewa mai lalo aʻe o kona puʻuwai, ʻaʻole ʻo ia e inaina iā ʻoe. Aloha ke aloha i nā kānaka a pau. Lūlū wale aku ʻo ia i ka hewa no ka mea hōʻeha a luku i nā poʻe.

"E hele ʻoe e like me" kou ke Akua ke kali nei no ʻoe e hoʻomaikaʻi hou aku ma mua o kou hele ʻana mai iā ia. Aloha ʻo ia iā ʻoe, ʻoiai naʻe i kāu hana. ʻO ke ala maopopo ʻo Iesū i loko o ke aupuni o ke Akua a me ke kōkua maikaʻi mai loko mai o nā mea āpau a lākou e pono ai. He aha ia e pale ana iā ʻoe mai kēia ʻike o ke ʻike ʻana i ke aloha o ke Akua? He aha ia: hāʻawi i kēia kaumaha iā Iesu, ʻoi aku ia ma mua o kāu?
