Nāʻike me ke akua

046 me ke akua akua «E hele aku e like me 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. O ka kahea e hele mai e like me ka mea o oe no ka hoakaka a na olelo a ka lunaolelo aposetolo a Roma ma Roma: «No Kristo, a o ko makou nawaliwali ana, make no ko Ateyista. 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 ke ala e lilo ai i aloha, akā ʻoi aku ka like ʻole, manaʻo lākou ua pau loa lākou, haki, a ʻaʻole lākou e hake hou.

Akā, ʻaʻole wehewehe mai ke Akua iā mākou ma o kā mākou hemahema a me nā hemahema; ke ʻike nei ʻo ia i ko mākou ola holoʻokoʻa: nā mea maikaʻi, nā mea maikaʻi, nā mea ʻino a ke aloha wale nō ʻo ia iā mākou. ʻOiai ʻaʻole ia he paʻakikī i ke Akua e aloha mai iā mākou, ua paʻakikī mākou i ke aloha i kēia aloha. Ua ʻike mākou i ka hohonu o ka pono o kēia aloha. I ka makahiki 15, ua hakakā ʻo Martin Luther i kahi hakakā paʻakikī e ola i ke ola kūpono ʻole, akā ua ʻike mau ʻo ia i ka hopena, a me ka hūnā 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.

I kēia manawa, he nui ka poʻe, inā ʻaʻole lākou i manaʻo e pili ana i ka hewa, ua mau nei ke manaʻo o ka hopohopo a ua piha i nā kānalua i ka manaʻo e manaʻo ʻia he aloha ʻole kekahi. ʻO ka mea āu e pono ke ʻike ai, ʻo ko lākou hana ʻole, me ka ʻole o ko lākou waiwai ʻole, ʻae ke aloha a aloha ke Akua iā lākou. Aloha pū kekahi ke aloha iā ʻoe. Inā inaina i ke Akua ka hewa, ʻaʻole aloha ʻo ia iā ʻoe. Nui ke aloha o ke Akua i ka poʻe āpau, ʻo ka poʻe hewa hoʻi, a inaina maoli aku hoʻi i ka hewa no ka mea ʻeha loa a luku hoʻi i ka poʻe.

"E hele ʻoe e like me ʻoe e" ʻaʻole e kali ana ke Akua iā ʻoe e hoʻomaikaʻi hou aʻe ma mua o kou hiki ʻana mai iā ia. Aloha ʻo ia iā ʻoe, ʻoiai naʻe i kāu hana. Ua hōʻoia ʻo ia i kahi ala mai nā mea a pau e hiki ke hoʻokaʻawale iā ʻoe iā ia. Ua hōʻike ʻo ia i kou pakele mai nā hale paʻahao o ka noʻonoʻo a me ka puʻuwai o ke kanaka.

He aha ia e kāohi iā ʻoe mai ke ʻike aku i ke aloha o ke Akua? He aha ia: no ke aha ʻoe e hāʻawi ʻole ai i kēia kau kaumaha iā Iesū, ʻo wai hoʻi ka mea hiki ke halihali iā ʻoe?
