049 kūʻokoʻa ʻEhia "ʻike" loaʻa iā ʻoe? ʻO ka ʻoiaʻiʻo, ʻoiaʻiʻo kekahi o mākou e hana maoli iā mākou iho. Hoʻomaka mākou i ko mākou ola ma kahi liʻiliʻi ma ka ʻōpū o kā mākou makuahine. Ua hānau ʻia mākou e nāwaliwali a inā ua waiho ʻia mākou i kā mākou mea hana ponoʻī e make mākou i loko o nā hola.

Akā i ka manawa i hiki ai mākou i ka pākeke, manaʻo mākou kūʻokoʻa mākou a hiki iā ia ke hana iā mākou iho. Ke makemake nui nei mākou no ka kūʻokoʻa a manaʻo pinepine mākou ʻo ke kala ʻole ke ola ʻana ma nā ʻano a me ka hana a mākou e makemake ai.

Me he mea paʻakikī hoʻi iā mākou ke hōʻoia i ka ʻoiaʻiʻo maʻalahi e pono ai mākou ke kōkua. ʻO kekahi o kaʻu mau moʻolelo punahele: "Ua hana ʻo ia iā mākou a ʻaʻole iā mākou iho i kona poʻe kānaka a me kāna poʻe hipa i kāna wahi ʻai" (Salamo 100,3). Maikaʻi nō hoʻi ʻo mākou i ka paʻakikī o ko mākou haʻi ʻana iā ia - he "hipa mākou o kāna wahi hānai."

I kekahi manawa ke kū mai wale ke ʻano o nā hika o ke ola, i ka wā pau loa, e manaʻo ʻia e manaʻo mākou e koi ʻia ka kōkua o ke Akua. ʻLelo mākou he kuleana mākou i ka hana a me ke ʻano a mākou e makemake ai, akā, ʻaʻole like ka hauʻoli i kēia. Ke hele nei i kou ala ponoʻi a me ka hana ʻana i kā mākou mea pono ʻole, ʻaʻole lawe ia i ka hopena hohonu a me ka hauʻoli e makemake ai mākou a pau. Ua like mākou me nā hipa e hele hewa ana, akā ʻo ka ʻōlelo maikaʻi ʻoiai inā ʻo kā mākou hewa nui i ke ola, ʻaʻole ke Akua e ʻae i ke aloha iā mākou.

Ma nā Roma 5,8: 10, ua kākau ka ʻolelo a Paulo: «Akā, hōʻike mai ke Akua i kona aloha iā mākou ma ka mea i make ʻo Kristo no mākou i ka poʻe hewa hewa. ʻAʻole paha ia e hoʻōla mai iā mākou mai ka huhū i kēia manawa i hoʻāpono ʻia ʻia e kona koko, no ka mea, inā i launa hou ʻia mākou i ke Akua ma o ka make ʻana o kāna keiki i nā ʻenemi, eia nō kāua e hoʻōla ʻia kākou e kona ola, i kēia manawa māua e hoʻopaʻa ai. »

ʻAʻohe hāʻawi ʻole ke Akua iā mākou. Ke kū nei ʻo ia ma ka puka o kā māua puʻuwai a me nā kī. Pono mākou e wehe i ka puka a hoʻokomo iā ia. Ke ʻole i hala ʻole ko mākou ola a ʻaʻole i hoʻokō. Akā ua hana ke Akua iā mākou no ke kaʻana i kona ola me mākou - ka ʻoliʻoli a me ke ola piha a ka Makua, ke Keiki, a me ka ʻUhane Hemolele. Ma o Iesū Kristo, ke keiki aloha a ka Makua, ua lilo ʻia mākou i mau lālā holoʻokoʻa o ka ʻohana o ke Akua. Ma o Iesu lā, ua hana mua ke Akua iā ia i kāna waiwai a ua hoʻopaʻa ʻia iā mākou iā ia iho ma o kāna aloha i kahi ala ʻole e hoʻokuʻu ʻole ʻia ai iā mākou. No ke aha ʻoe e manaʻoʻiʻo ai i ka nūhou maikaʻi, e huli i ke Akua i ka hilinaʻi, e lawe i ke keʻa a hahai iā Iesū Kristo? ʻO ia wale ke ala i ka ʻoluʻolu maoli.
