ʻO ka lokomaikaʻi a me ka make

Ke kākau nei au i kēia mau laina, hoʻomākaukau wau e hele i ka neʻe ʻana o kuʻu makua kāne. Ua maikaʻi maikaʻiʻo ia no kekahi manawa. Ua ʻōlelo ʻia e ka huaʻōlelo kaulana a Benjamin Franklin: "ʻAe wale nō mākou i ʻelua mau mea i kēia ao: make a me ka ʻauhau." Ua lilo iaʻu nā mea nui i loko o koʻu ola; me koʻu makuakāne. Ke hoʻomanaʻo mau nei au e kipa aku ana iā ia i ka haukapila. Ua ʻeha nui ʻo ia a hiki ʻole iaʻu ke kū e ʻike iā ia i kēlā mau pilikia. ʻO ka hope kēia o koʻu ʻike ʻana iā ia e ola ana. ʻO wau ke kaumaha nei i kēia lā ʻaʻole wau makuakāne maku e kelepona mai e hoʻohana i ka manawa me ka Lā Makua. Aka, ke mahalo nei au i ke Akua no ka lokomaikai mai a kakou mai ia ia mai o ka make. Ma ia mea ua hiki mai ke aloha a me ke aloha a loaʻa i nā kānaka a me nā mea ola. I ka hewa a Adamu lāua ʻo Eva, paʻa ke Akua iā lākou mai ka ʻai ʻana i ka lāʻau o ke ola. Makemake ʻo ia e make lākou, akā no ke aha? ʻO kēia ka ʻōlelo: inā hoʻomau lākou e ʻai mai ka lāʻau o ke ola inā i hana hewa lākou, e ola mau lākou ka hewa a me ka maʻi i nā lā a pau. Inā, e like me koʻu makuakāne, ua loaʻa iā lākou ka cirrhosis o nā palu, e noho lākou i ka ʻeha a me nā maʻi mau loa. Inā he mau maʻi iā lākou, e ʻeha mau loa lākou me ke ʻano ʻole o ka manaʻolana no ka mea ʻaʻole e make ka maʻi iā lākou. Ua hāʻawi mai ke Akua iā mākou i ka make ma ka lokomaikaʻi i hiki ai iā mākou ke pakele i nā lā honua. ʻAʻole kahi hoʻopaʻi ka make i ka lawehala, akā he makana e alakaʻi i ke ola maoli.

“Aka aloha nui ke Akua a aloha nui iā mākou e ala a Kristo iā ia mai ka make mai, ua hāʻawi mai ia iā mākou i nā mea i make iā mākou i nā ola hou me Kristo. Nāna wale nō kou hoʻopōmaikaʻi ʻia e ke aloha o ke Akua! No ka mea, ua hoʻāla pū ʻo kākou iā Kristo mai ka make mai a ʻānō pū kekahi o kāna aupuni lani me Iesū ” (Epeso 2,4: 6; New Life. ʻO ka Baibala).

Hele mai ʻo Iesū i ka honua me he kanaka lā e hoʻokuʻu i nā kānaka mai ka hale paʻahao o ka make. I kona komo ʻana i loko o ka hale kupapaʻu, ua hui pū ʻo ia me nā mea a pau e ola ana a make a make loa. Eia naʻe, ʻo kāna mea e hoʻolālā ai e ala mai ka lua kupapaʻu me nā poʻe a pau loa. Ua wehewehe ʻo Paulo iā ia penei: "Inā ʻoe i kū pū me kēia iā Kristo, e nānā i nā mea i luna, kahi a Kristo e noho ana ma ka lima ʻākau o ke Akua" (Kolosa 3,1).

Hoʻokomo ʻia ka lāʻau i ka hewa

Ua haʻi ʻia mākou e ulu kino ka ʻeha ma ke ao nei ke hana hewa nei mākou. Hoʻopili ke Akua i ke ola o nā kānaka, ua ʻōlelo ʻia ma ka Genesis: "A laila, ʻōlelo ʻia ka Haku: ʻAʻole pono e hoʻokuʻi koʻu ʻuhane i ke kanaka, no ka mea, he kino nō hoʻi ke kanaka. Makemake wau e hāʻawi iā ia i hoʻokahi haneli me nā makahiki he mau makahiki ” (Nā helu 1:6,3). Ua haʻi aku nā mele i ka hoʻopiʻi a Mose no ka kūlana o ke kanaka i nā makahiki ma hope aku: “Ua kaumaha loa kou huhū i ko mākou ola, e like hoʻi me ke kaniʻuhū ʻana. Manaʻo paha mākou e kanahiku mau makahiki, a paha paha kanawalu - akā ʻo ka makahiki maikaʻi loa he hana paʻakikī! Pehea koke ka pau o nā mea a pau loa mākou " (Salamo 90,9f; GN). Ua hoʻonui ʻia ka hewa a ua emi ka lōʻihi o ka poʻe mai nā makahiki he 120, e like me ka hōʻike ʻana ma Genesis, i kahi makahiki hohonu. ʻO ka hewa e like me ke kanesa. ʻO ke ala ala maikaʻi e hoʻomāino ʻia e luku ai. ʻO ka make ka hopena o ka hala. No ia mea i lawe ai ʻo Iesū i kā mākou mau hewa ma luna ona i ka make. Ma o kona make ʻana i ʻike ai mākou i ka lāʻau e pili ana i ka hewa, ʻo kāna aloha e like me ka lokomaikaʻi o ke ola. ʻAʻole ka ʻū ʻia o ka make ma laila no ka mea ua make ʻo Iesū a ala hou ia.

Ma muli o ka make a me ke alahou ʻana o Kristo, ke kali nei mākou ma mua o ke ala hou ʻana o kāna poʻe haumāna. "No ka mea, ke make nei lākou a pau iā Adamu, e ola hou lākou a pau ma o Kristo" (1 Kolinito 15,22). ʻO kēia hiki ʻana ke ola me nā hopena maikaʻi loa: "A e holoi ke Akua i nā waimaka a pau mai ko lākou mau maka, ʻaʻole e make ka make, ʻaʻole hoʻi e aloha, ʻaʻole hoʻi e uwē a ʻeha paha ka ʻeha; no ka mea, ua hala nā mua ” (Hōʻike 21,4). Mahope iho o ke alahouana, aole e make. No kēia manaolana, kākau ʻo Paulo i ko Tesalonika, i ʻole lākou e kanikau e like me ka mea ʻole ka manaʻo: "Akā, ʻaʻole makemake mākou e haʻalele iā ʻoe, e nā hoahānau aloha, i kanalua no ka poʻe i hiamoe i ʻole ʻoe e kaniʻuhū ai e like me nā poʻe ʻē aʻe ʻaʻohe kumu. No ka mea ke manaʻoʻiʻo nei mākou ua make ʻo Iesū a ala hou, e alakaʻi nō ke Akua i ka poʻe i moe me ia ma o Iesū lā. No ka mea, ke haʻi aku nei mākou iā ʻoe ma kahi ʻōlelo mai ka Haku, a mākou e ola nei a noho ana a hiki i ka hōʻea ʻana mai o ka Haku, ʻaʻole mākou e ʻānai i ka poʻe i hiamoe. " (1 Tesa 4,13: 15).

ʻO ke hōʻoluʻolu mai ka ʻeha

Ke kanikau nei mākou i ka nalowale o nā aloha a me nā hoa aloha no ka mea nalo iā mākou, ke manaʻo nei mākou ʻike hou ʻia lākou i ka lani. He like ia me ka hoʻolima ʻana i kahi hoaaloha e hala ana i kahi manawa lōʻihi. ʻAʻole pau ka make. ʻO ia ka mea e hoʻokuʻu aku iā mākou i nā ʻeha. Ke hoi mai la o Iesu, ʻaʻohe make, aohe eha, a me ke kaumaha ole. Hiki iā mākou ke hoʻomaikaʻi i ke Akua no ka lokomaikaʻi o ka make ke make kahi mea aloha. Aka, heaha ka poe i hana ai i ka loihi loa ma mua o ke kāhea ʻia ʻana i ko lākou home mau loa? No ke aha ʻaʻole lākou i hiki i ka ʻike i ka lokomaikaʻi o ka make? Ua haʻalele ke Akua iā ia? ʻAʻohe hoʻi! ʻAʻole ia e haʻalele a hōʻole mai iā mākou. O ka ae ana hoi he lokomaikai mai ke Akua. ʻO Iesū, ʻo ia ke Akua, ua ʻeha i ka ʻeha o ke kanaka no kanakolu makahiki - me kona mau palena a pau. ʻO ka ʻeha ʻeha loa i hōʻeha ʻia i kona make ʻana i ke keʻa.

Hana ʻia i ke ola o Iesū

ʻAʻole maopopo ka nui o nā Kristiano i ka hoʻomaikaʻi ʻana. He ʻeha ka ʻeha a me ka ʻeha, no ka mea, ua loaʻa iā mākou ka ʻāpana i ke ola hōʻino a Iesū: "ʻĀnō ʻoliʻoli wau i nā ʻehaʻeha aʻu e loaʻa ai iā ʻoe. , ʻo ia ka halepule ” (Kolosa 1,24).

Ua hoʻomaopopo ʻo Peter i ka hana e hana ai ka pōpilikia i ke ola o nā Karistiano: "No ka mea, ua ʻoki ʻo Kristo i ka ʻiʻo, e hoʻouka ʻoe iā ʻoe iho me ka like; no ka mea ua hoʻomaʻo ʻia i loko o ke kino ua hoʻōki i ka hewa " (1 Petelu 4,1). ʻO ka manaʻo o Paulo i ka ʻeha e like me kā Peter. ʻIke ʻo Paulo i ka ʻeha no ka mea: he lokomaikaʻi e hauʻoli ai kākou. "Hoonaniia ke Akua, ka Makua o ko kakou Haku o Iesu Kristo, ka Makua nona ke aloha a me ke Akua o nā hōʻoluʻolu ʻē, ka mea e hōʻoluʻolu mai iā mākou i nā pilikia a pau, i hiki iā mākou ke hōʻoluʻolu i ka poʻe i kēlā me kēia pilikia, me ka hōʻoluʻolu e hōʻoluʻolu ʻia iā mākou iho no ke Akua mai. No ka mea, me ka hiki ʻana mai o nā pilikia o Kristo ma luna o mākou, ua hōʻoluʻolu nui ʻia ʻia e mākou e Kristo. Akā inā mākou i pilikia, e hōʻoluʻolu no ia, a me kou ola. Inā mākou e hōʻoluʻolu, e ʻoluʻolu nō ia e hoʻomanawanui inā hoʻomanawanui ʻoe i nā pilikia like ʻole a mākou e kaumaha nei ” (2 Kolinito 1,3: 6).

He mea nui e ʻike i nā pilikia a pau e like me ka wehewehe ʻana o Peter. Hoʻomanaʻo mai ʻo ia iā mākou i ka wā a mākou e hōʻeha ai i ka hōʻeha a me ka make ʻole me ka hōʻoia ʻole, ʻike mākou i ka ʻeha o Iesū. “No ka mea, ʻo ka lokomaikaʻi kēia i ka mea e hoʻomanawanui ai i ka hewa no ka noʻonoʻo i mua o ke Akua a ʻeha ʻia kona hewa. No ka mea he ʻano kaulana i ka wā i hahau ʻia ai ʻoe no nā hana maikaʻi a hoʻomanawanui? Aka, ina ehaeha oe no na hana maikai a hoomanawanui ia, he lokomaikai ia me ke Akua. No ka mea eia kēia i hea ʻia aku ai ʻoe e hana, no ka mea, ua hōʻeha ʻo Kristo iā ʻoe, a ua waiho ʻoe i kahi hiʻohiʻona e pono ai ʻoe e hahai i kona mau kapuwaʻi. (1 Petelu 2,19:21 -).

Ke hauʻoli nei mākou i ka lokomaikaʻi o ke Akua ma ka hōʻeha, ka ʻeha a me ka make. E like me Ioba, ʻike nō hoʻi mākou i ka wā a ʻike i ke kanaka, ʻike hewa lākou i ka maʻi a me ka ʻeha, ʻaʻole mākou i haʻalele i ke Akua, akā e kū pū ana iā mākou a hauʻoli i loko o mākou.

Ina e nonoi aku oe i ke Akua i kou ehaeha e lawe mai ia oe, alaila o ke Akua makemake ina oe e maopopo ana i kona maha ana: "E lawa ai koʻu lokomaikai" (2 Kolinito 12,9). E lilo ʻoe i mea hōʻoluʻolu no nā poʻe ʻē aʻe ma o ka hōʻoluʻolu a lākou i ʻike ai iā lākou iho.
