Uaʻoi aku ka maikaʻi ma mua o nāʻalo

341 ʻoi aku i nā popo Ua komo paha ʻoe i loko o kahi lehulehu nui āu i manaʻo ai i ka mea ʻuʻuku a me ka mea ʻole? A i ʻole kau e noho ma luna o kahi mokulele a ʻike i nā kānaka ma luna o ka papahele, ua like me nā pōpoki? ʻO kekahi manawa manaʻo wau ma ke alo o ke Akua he ʻano like mākou me he ʻūhini e kuʻe ana i ka lepo.

Ma ka Isaia 40,22: 24, ʻōlelo ke Akua:
Ua noho ʻo ia ʻo ia ma luna o ke kaʻe o ka honua, a ʻo ka poʻe e noho ana ma ua like me nā ʻūhini; hohola ʻo ia i ka lani e like me ka pākū a hohola hoʻi e like me kahi hale i noho ai kekahi; ua hoike oia i na alii aole he mea ole, a luku aku la oia i na lunakanawai ma ka honua: aia ke kanu ana, aia, i ka lulu ana, i ka ulu ana o ko lakou iwi i ka honua, puliki aku ia lakou e palu a pela aku. Paʻi akula ka makani ma muli e like me ka ʻōpala. ʻAʻole anei he ʻano nui ia i ke ʻano he "ʻūlū ʻūlani"? He mea nui paha mākou i kekahi mana ikaika?

Hōʻike ka mokuna 40 o Isaia iā mākou i ka hoʻomāwaʻaka ʻana o ka hoʻohālikelike ʻana i nā kānaka me ke Akua nui: «Na wai lākou i hana? Ka mea nana i alakai i ko lakou poe koa ma na helu, ka mea i kahea ia lakou a pau ma ka inoa. Laki loa kona waiwai a he ikaika nui paha ka mea hiki ʻole iā ia ke nalo i kahi » (Isaia 40,26).

Hoike ʻia kēia mokuna ma ka nīnau a ke Akua no ko mākou pono. ʻIke ʻo ia i ko mākou mau pilikia a hōʻole ʻole ʻo ia e hoʻolohe i kā mākou hihia. ʻO ka hohonu o kona ʻike ka mea iʻoi aku ma mua o mākou. Makemake nui ʻo ia i ka nāwaliwali a luhi a hāʻawi iā lākou i ka ikaika a me ka ikaika.

Inā e noho ai ke Akua ma luna o ka noho aliʻi kiʻekiʻe ma luna o ka honua, ʻike paha ʻo ia iā mākou e like me nā pepeke. Eia mau ka manawa maanei, eia me mākou, i loko ona a me aloha nui iā mākou.

ʻOluʻolu mākou kanaka i nā nīnau maʻamau o ka manaʻo. Ua manaʻo kēia i kekahi ua hiki wale mai mākou ma o ka hewa a he kumu ʻole ko mākou ola. "A laila e hauʻoli kākou!" Akā waiwai waiwai mākou no ka mea ua hana ʻia mākou i ke ʻano o ke Akua. Ua heluʻo ia iā mākou e like me ka poʻe, ʻo kēlā me kēia mea nui; mahalo ʻia nā mea a pau iā ia ma kona ala iho. I kahi lehulehu o hoʻokahi miliona, ua like kēlā me kēia me ke koʻikoʻi o kēlā me kēia - ua koʻikoʻi nā mea āpau i ka mea hana i ko mākou ʻuhane.

No laila he aha lā mākou e pīhoihoi nui e hoʻāʻo nei e hōʻole i ke ʻano o kekahi i kekahi? ʻO kekahi manawa hōʻino mākou, hoʻowahāwahā a hōʻino aku i ka poʻe nāna e kiʻi nei i ke kiʻi o ka mea nāna i hana. Ua poina iā mākou a nānā ʻole paha i ke aloha ʻana i ke Akua i nā poʻe a pau. A i ʻole haʻaheo paha ʻoe e manaʻoʻiʻo ua waiho ʻia kekahi i kēia honua e waiho wale i kekahi "mau mea kiʻekiʻe"? Kaulana ke ʻano o ka ʻike kanaka i ka naʻaupō a me ka haʻaheo, ʻo ka hōʻino wale ʻia. ʻO ke ala wale nō i kēia pilikia kumu ʻoiaʻiʻo, ʻoiaʻiʻo, ʻike a me ka hilinaʻi i ka mea nāna i hāʻawi iā mākou i ola a no laila ke kumu. I kēia manawa mākou e ʻike pehea e hiki ai iā mākou ke hana maikaʻi i kēia mau mea.

ʻO kā mākou hiʻohiʻona o ka mālama ʻana i nā mea like i kekahi mau mea koʻikoʻi ʻo Iesu, ka mea nāna i ʻoka ʻole i kekahi kanaka he ʻōpala. ʻO kā mākou kuleana iā Iesū a me kēlā me kēia kanaka, ʻo ia ka hahai ʻana i kāna kumu hoʻohālike - e ʻike i ke ʻano o ke Akua i kēlā me kēia kanaka a mākou e hālāwai ai a mālama iā lākou. Penting anei kakou i ke Akua? Ma muli o ka mea nāna i lawe i kona ʻano, he mea nui loa mākou iā ia nāna i hoʻouna mai kāna keiki hoʻokahi e make no mākou. A na olelo nō a pau.
