ʻO Iesū ke makahiapo

453 jesus ka mua

I kēia ola a holo mākou i ka hopena o ka hōʻino ʻia no Kristo. Hāʻawi mākou i nā waiwai kuʻuna a me nā hauʻoli o kēia ao. Inā i loaʻa kēia ola ma mākou a pau, no ke aha lā mākou e hāʻawi ai i kahi mea? Inā mākou e hāʻawi aku i nā mea a pau no kēia leka hoʻokahi hoʻi i kūʻiʻo ʻole ʻia, e ʻoluʻolu loa mākou.

E haʻi mai ka ʻeuanelio iā mākou he manaolana no ke ola e hiki mai ana iā Kristo no ka mea e hilinaʻi ana i ke ala hou ʻana o Iesū. Hoʻomau ka hoʻomanaʻo i ka hoʻi ʻana o Iesū - a ua hoʻohiki ʻo ia iā mākou e ola hou. Inā ʻaʻole ia i ala, ʻaʻole ia mākou e manaʻolana i kēia ola a i ka wā e hiki mai ana. Akā, ua ala maoli ʻo Iesū, no laila ke manaolana nei mākou.

Ua hōʻoia ʻo Paulo i ka ʻeuanelio: “Ua kū mai ʻo Kristo mai ka make mai. ʻO ia ka mea a ke Akua i hoʻāla ai. Hoʻoiho ʻo ia ʻo kona alahouana i ka hōʻoia a hiki i ka poʻe i make i ka manaʻoʻiʻo iā Iesū e ala hou ʻia ”(1 Cor 15,20 GNÜ).

I loko o ka ʻIseraʻela kahiko, ua ʻoki ʻia a me ka hana mua i ka makahiki i kēlā me kēia makahiki. No laila hiki ke ʻai ʻia ke koena o ka palaoa (Leviticus 3, 23-10 LUT). I kā lākou mōhai ʻana i ke Akua ka pua mua a Iesū i hōʻailona ai, ʻike nō kā lākou palaoa a pau na ke Akua. ʻO ka mea mua i hōʻike i ka hōʻiliʻili āpau.

Ua kapa aku ʻo Paulo iā Iesū ka hua mua a ma ka manawa like ʻo Iesu ke hoʻohiki ʻana a ke Akua i kahi hōʻiliʻili nui e hiki mai ana ma mua. ʻO ia ka mea e ala hou ʻia, a hōʻike i ka poʻe i hoʻāla ʻia. Aia i ko mākou wā e hiki mai ana i kona alahouana. ʻAʻole mākou e hahai wale iā ia i kona mau ʻeha, akā ma ka nani ona (Rom 8,17).

ʻAʻole ʻike ʻo Paul iā mākou i kahi kanaka kūʻokoʻa - ʻike ʻo ia iā mākou ma ke ʻano hui. Ehia pūʻulu? E lilo anei mākou i poʻe e hahai iā Adamu a i ʻole e hahai iā Iesu?

I mai la o Paulo: "Mai ka make mai ke kanaka. Eia nō kekahi, "ʻo ke ala hou aʻe o ka poʻe make ka mea i hiki i ke kanaka, no ka mea, me ka make ʻana o nā mea a pau a Adamu, pēlā e ola ai nā kānaka a pau ma o Kristo" (1 Kor. 15,21: 22 LUT). ʻO Adamu ka hua mua o ka make; O Iesu ka hua mua o ke ala hou ʻana. Ke hiki nei mākou i ka ʻAdamu, ke hōʻike pū nei mākou i kona make me ia. Ke noho mākou iā Kristo, e hāʻawi pū me mākou i kona alahouana a me ke ola mau loa.

Ua ʻōlelo ka ʻeuanelio e ola hou nā mea a pau i loko o Kristo. ʻAʻole wale kēia he pōmaikaʻi iki ʻole i kēia ola - e hauʻoli mau mākou iā ia a mau. "Nā poʻe a pau: ʻO Kristo ka mua, ma hope iho, i ka wā e hiki mai ai, ʻo ia nā mea nona" (1 Cor 15,23 LUT). Pēlā e ala ai ʻo Iesū mai ka luakupapau, pēlā pū mākou e ala ai i kahi ola hou a maikaʻi hoʻi. ʻAʻoli mākou! Ua ala aʻe ʻo Kristo, a ʻo mākou pū me ia!
