ʻO ko mākouʻokoʻa maoli

222 ko mākou ʻike maoli ʻO kēia manawa ka mea maʻamau ka hana ʻana i inoa no ʻoe i mea i mea nui a koʻikoʻi i kekahi a me ʻoe iho. Ua like ia me he poʻe ʻimi nei i ka ʻike a me ka manaʻo nui. Aka ua olelo mai o Iesu: "O ka mea e loaa i kona ola e lilo no kona ola; a ʻo ka mea lilo i kona ola noʻu, e loaʻa nō ia. (Mataio 10:39). Ma kahi ekalesia, ua aʻo mai mākou mai kēia ʻoiaʻiʻo. Mai makahiki 2009 ua kapa ʻia mākou ʻo Grace Communion International a e pili ana kēia inoa i ko mākou ʻano maoli, kahi i hoʻokumu ʻia iā Iesū a ʻaʻole i loko o mākou. E nānā pono kākou i kēia inoa a ʻike i nā mea huna i loko.

Aloha (Grace)

ʻO Grace ka ʻōlelo mua ma kā mākou inoa no ka mea e wehewehe maikaʻi i kā mākou helehelena a kaʻana like i ke Akua ma o Iesū Kristo ma o ka ʻUhane Hemolele. "Akā, manaʻoʻiʻo mākou ma ke aloha o ka Haku ʻo Iesū e ola ai mākou, e like me kā lākou" (Nā Hana 15:11). ʻO mākou "ʻaʻohe pono kūpono mai kona lokomaikaʻi ma o ke ola ʻana ma o Iesū Iesū" (Roma 3:24). Ma ke aloha wale nō e haʻalele iā mākou (ma o Kristo) i ʻ righteousness pono i kona pono iho. Hoʻomaopopo mau ka Baibala iā mākou ʻo ka ʻōlelo o ka manaʻoʻiʻo, kahi mea e pili ana i ka lokomaikaʻi o ke Akua (E nana i ka Oihana 14: 3; 20, 24; 20, 32).

ʻO ke kumu no ka pilina o ke Akua me nā kānaka he lokomaikaʻi a me ka ʻoiaʻiʻo. ʻOiai ʻo ke kānāwai he hōʻike ia o kēia mau ʻona, a ʻo ka lokomaikaʻi o ke Akua nō i loaʻa ka hōʻike piha ma o Iesū Kristo. Ma ke aloha o ke Akua e ola ʻia ai wale kākou e Iesū Kristo a ʻaʻole pono me ka mālama pono ʻana i ke kānāwai. O ke kānāwai kahi i hoʻohewa ʻia ai nā kānaka a pau, ʻaʻole ia ka ʻōlelo hope a ke Akua. O kana olelo hope loa no Iesu. ʻO ia ka hōʻike kūpono a me ka hōʻike pilikino a ke aloha a ke Akua i hāʻawi me ke kanaka i nā kānaka.
ʻO ko mākou hōʻoia i lalo o ke kānāwai i hoʻāpono ʻia a kūpono hoʻi. ʻAʻole loaʻa iā mākou kahi ʻano kūpono mai kā mākou iho no ka mea, ʻaʻole lawehala ke Akua i kāna mau kānāwai ponoʻī a me nā kānāwai. E hana ana ke Akua ma loko o mākou ke kūʻokoʻa ma muli o kona makemake.

Ua wehewehe ʻia kona makemake ma ka lokomaikaʻi a me ka hoʻōla. Ua kākau aʻe ka luna ʻana o Paulo penei: «ʻO wau ʻaʻole e kiola aku i ka lokomaikaʻi o ke Akua; no ka mea, inā ma ke kānāwai ka mea i make ʻole ai ka make. (Galatia 2:21). Ua wehewehe ʻo Paulo i ka lokomaikaʻi o ke Akua ʻoiai wale nō ke makemake makemake e hoʻolei. ʻAʻole makemake ke aloha i kahi mea i kau ʻia, ke ana ʻana, a lawelawe ʻia. ʻO ke aloha ka maikaʻi ola o ke Akua ma ke alualu ʻana i ka naʻau o ka naʻau a me ka noʻonoʻo a hoʻololi ʻia ʻelua.

Ma kāna palapala i ka halepule ma Roma, kākau ʻo Paul, ʻo ka mea nui wale a mākou e ho'āʻo nei e hoʻokō ma o kā mākou hana ponoʻī he uku lawehala, ʻo ia hoʻi ka make. Aka aia nō kekahi mea maikaʻi loa, no ka mea "ʻo ka makana a ke Akua, he ola mau loa ia Kristo Iesu ko mākou Haku" (Roma 6:24). O Iesu ka lokomaikai o ke Akua. ʻO ke kūʻai aku a ke Akua ua hoʻokuʻu ʻia no nā kānaka a pau.

Nā Kahu (Hōʻailona)

ʻO ke aloha ʻo ia ka huaʻōlelo ʻelua ma ko mākou inoa no ka mea he pilina maoli mākou me ka Makua ma o ke Keiki me ka launa pū me ka ʻUhane Hemolele. Ma loko o Kristo mākou e launa pū ai me ke Akua a me kekahi. Ua hoʻolilo ʻo James Torrance iā ia penei: "ʻO ka Triune ke Akua ka mea i hui pū me ke ʻano he kanaka maoli ʻole kākou inā ua ʻike mākou i kā mākou ʻike i ka hui pū me ia a me nā poʻe ʻē aʻe."

Aia ko ka Makua, ke Keiki a me ka ʻUhane Hemolele i loko o ka launa aloha a a pule ʻo Iesū i nāhele kāna mau haumāna e pili i kēia pili a e noʻonoʻo hou lākou i kēia ma ka honua. (Ioane 14:20; 17, 23). Ua wehewehe ko aposetolo a luna i kēia kaiāulu i mea aloha nui i ke aloha. Hōʻike ʻo John i kēia aloha hohonu e like me ka launa pū mau loa me ka Makua, ke Keiki a me ka ʻUhane Hemolele. ʻO ka pilina maoli ka mea e ola ai me ka launa pū me Kristo me ke aloha o ka Makua ma o ka ʻUhane Hemolele (1 Ioane 4: 8).

ʻ oftenlelo pinepine ia ʻo ka lilo ʻana i Kristiano i kahi pilina pilikino me Iesū. Hoʻohana ka Baibala i kekahi mau mea hoʻohālikelike e wehewehe i kēia pilina. ʻO kekahi e pili ana i ka pili o ka haku i kāna kauwā. He mea hoʻoili ʻia, a laila e pono ai e hoʻomaikaʻi a hele aku i kā mākou Haku, ʻo Iesū Kristo. Ua olelo hou aku o Iesu i kana poe haumana: «Ma neia manawa aole au e olelo he poe kauwa oukou; no ka mea, aole o ke kauwa e ike i ka mea a kona haku e hana nei. Akā i haʻi aku au iā ʻoe he hoaaloha ʻoe; no ka mea, pau nā mea aʻu i lohe ai mai koʻu makuakāne aʻu i hōʻike ai iā ʻoe » (Ioane 15:15). ʻO kekahi kiʻi e haʻi e pili ana i ka pilina ma waena o ka makuakāne a me kāna mau keiki (Ioane 1: 12-13). Lilo ʻo Iesu i ke kiʻi o ke kāne a me kāna wahine mare i hiki ke loaʻa i ka Old Old (Mataio 9:15) a ua kākau aku ʻo Paulo e pili ana i ka pilina o ka kāne a me ka wahine (Epeso 5). Ma muli, ʻo ka leka i nā Hebera, ʻōlelo ʻo mākou he mau kaikuaʻana a he mau kaikuaʻana na Iesū (Hebera 2:11). ʻO kēia mau kiʻi āpau (Kawahine, hoaaloha, keiki, kāne kāne, kaikuahine, ka hoahānau) i ka manaʻo o kahi kaiāulu hohonu, maikaʻi, pilikino a me kekahi. Akā he mau kiʻi āpau wale nō kēia. ʻO ko mākou Akua ka mea nāna ke kumu a me ka ʻoiaʻiʻo o kēia pilina a me ke kaiāulu. He hui ia e kaʻana like me mākou me kāna aloha.

Ua pule ʻo Iesū, e noho pū mākou me ia i ka manawa pau ʻole a hauʻoli i kēia mea maikaʻi (Ioane 17:24). Ma kēia pule ua kono ʻo ia iā mākou e noho ma ke ʻano he ʻohana kekahi me kekahi a me ka Makua. I ka piʻi ʻana o Iesū i ka lani, lawe maila ʻo ia iā mākou, e kāna hoa, i loko o ke kaiāulu o ka Makua a me ka ʻUhane Hemolele. Ua ʻōlelo ʻo Paulo ma ke ala ma o ka ʻUhane Hemolele e noho ai ma kahi o Kristo a i mua hoʻi o ka Makua (Epeso 2, 6). Ua hiki iā mākou keʻike i kēia launa pū me ke Akua, ʻoiai ka piha o kēia pilina ke ʻike wale ʻia ana a hoʻi mai ʻo Kristo a hoʻokumu i kona aupuni. ʻO ke kumu he kumu nui o ke kaiāulu o ko mākou kaiāulu o kaʻiʻo. ʻO kā mākou ʻike, i kēia manawa a mau loa aku, ua hoʻokumu ʻia iā Kristo a i loko o ke kaiāulu i hui pū ai ke Akua me mākou he Makua, Keiki a me he ʻUhane Hemolele.

ʻO ke kālā ka ʻōlelo ʻekolu i ko mākou inoa no ka mea he kaiāulu nui o kā mākou ekalesia. A hiki mākou i nā kānaka ma nā ʻāpana like ʻole o ka moʻomeheu, linguistic a me nā ʻāina. ʻOiai he ʻona liʻiliʻi mākou no ka ʻāina, aia nā kaiāulu i kēlā me kēia mokuʻāina ʻAmelika a ma Kanada hoʻi, Mekiko, Caribbean, ʻAmelika Hema, ʻEulopa, ʻAsia, ʻAmelika, ʻAmelika a ma ka Pakipika. Ua loaʻa iā mākou he 50.000 o nā lālā ma mua o 70 mau ʻāina i loaʻa i nā hale ma mua o 900 mau pule.

Ua hoʻākoakoa mai ke Akua iā mākou ma kēia kaiāulu ʻoihana. He hoʻopōmaikaʻi nui mākou e hana pū a hiki i kahi liʻiliʻi akā hana pilikino kēia mau hana like. I ko mākou kaiaulu, e kūkulu mau ʻia ana nā hoaaloha a kūkulu ʻia ma nā palena o ka ʻāina a me ka moʻomeheu, i kēia mau lā i kaʻana like i ko mākou honua. He hōʻailona maoli nō ia o ka lokomaikaʻi o ke Akua!

Ma he halepule, he mea nui ia iā mākou e ola a hoʻoilina i ka ʻeuanelio a ke Akua i waiho ai i loko o ko mākou mau naʻau. ʻO ka ʻike ʻana i ka nui o ka lokomaikaʻi a ke aloha a ke Akua e hoʻoikaika nei i ka haʻi ʻana i ka lono maikaʻi i nā poʻe ʻē aʻe. Makemake mākou i nā poʻe ʻē aʻe e komo i loko a mālama i kahi pilina me Iesū Kristo a hoʻopaʻa pū ma kēia hauʻoli. ʻAʻole hiki iā kākou ke mālama i ka ʻeuanelio no ka mea makemake mākou i ka poʻe āpau o ka honua e ʻike i ka lokomaikaʻi o ke Akua a lilo i ʻāpana o ke kaiāulu. ʻO ia ka ʻōlelo a ke Akua i hāʻawi mai ai e hōʻike pū me ka honua.
