ʻAʻoleʻo Iesu wale nō

238 ʻAʻole ʻo Iesu wale nō

Hoʻokake ʻia kekahi huhū pilikia ma ke kea ma kahi puʻu ʻohi ʻia ma waho o Ierusalema. ʻAʻole ʻo ia wale nō. ʻAʻole ʻo ia ka mea hoʻopilikia wale ma Ierusalema i kēlā lā puna.

"Ua kaulia ʻia wau me Kristo," i kākau ʻia e ka lunaʻōlelo ʻo Paulo (Galea 2,20) akā ʻaʻole ʻo Paulo wale nō kā ia. "Ua make pū ʻoe me Kristo," i ʻōlelo ʻo ia i nā poʻe Kristiano ʻē aʻe (Kolosa 2,20). "Ua kanu ʻia mākou me ia," i kākau ia i ka Roma (Roma 6,4). He aha ka mea e hele mai nei? ʻAʻole paha kēia mau kānaka ma luna o ka puʻu ma Ierusalema. He aha ka mea a Paulo e kamaʻilio ai? Ka poʻe Kristiano a pau, e ʻike paha lākou ʻaʻole paha, e kaʻana i ke keʻa o Kristo.

Kahi nō ʻoe ma ke keʻa i kau ma ke kea iā Iesū? Ina he Kristiano, he pane ka pane, ma laila ʻoe. Eia pū mākou me ia ʻoiai ʻaʻole mākou i ʻike i ia manawa. E kani paha e like me ka lapuwale. Heaha ke ano? Ma ka ʻōlelo ʻānō e ʻōlelo mākou e ʻike nei mākou me Iesu. Ua ʻae mākou iā ia ma ke ʻano he mākaukau mākou. Kena mākou i kona make i uku no kā mākou mau hewa.

Akā, ʻaʻole wale ia. E ʻae nō hoʻi mākou - a i komo i loko - ʻo kona alahouana! «Na ke Akua i hoʻāla mai iā mākou me ia» (Epeso 2,6). Aia mākou ma ke kakahiaka o ke ala hou ʻana. «Na ke Akua ia i lawe aku i ola oe me ia» (Kolosa 2,13). «Ke Ala Oe (Kolosa 3,1).

ʻO ka moʻolelo ʻo Kristo kā mākou moʻolelo inā inā e hoʻokae iā mākou, inā e ʻae ʻia mākou e ʻike ʻia me ko kākou Haku ma ke kea. Hoʻohili ʻia ko mākou ola i kona ola, ʻaʻole wale ka nani o ke alahouana akā ʻo ke kaumaha nō hoʻi a me ka ʻeha a kona hōʻoki ʻia. Hiki iā ʻoe ke ʻae E hiki anei iā mākou me Kristo i kona make? Inā mākou e hōʻoia e pili ana, a laila hiki no hoʻi iā mākou ke hoʻonani me ia.

Ua hana ʻo Iesū he nui wale ma mua o ka make a ala hou. I ola ʻo ia i ka pono a ke like pū mākou me kēia ola. ʻAʻole mākou he hemolele - ʻaʻole hoʻi i hemolele maikaʻi - akā ua kāhea ʻia mākou e māhele hou i ke ola hou o Kristo. Heluhelu mai ʻo Paulo iā ia penei: "No laila ua kanu ʻia mākou me ia ma ka bapetizo i loko o ka make. Pēlā e like me Kristo i hoʻāla ʻia mai ka make mai e ka nani o ka Makua, hiki iā mākou ke hele ma kahi ola hou." Kanu ʻia me ia, i hāpai pū ʻia me ia, e noho pū me ia.

ʻO kahi ʻike hou

He aha ke ʻano o kēia ola hou? "Pela hoi oukou, e manao oukou ua make i ka hewa a ola i ke Akua iloko o Kristo Iesu. Mai hoʻokuʻu ʻoe i ka hewa i loko o kou kino make, mai mālama i kona mau makemake. Mai haawi hoi i kou mau wawae i ka hewa e like me ka mea o ko lakou hewa, aka e haawi aku ia oe iho i ke Akua e like me ka poe i make a ke ola nei lakou, a o ko oukou mau lala i mea e like me na mea o ke kaulike. (Nā pauku 11-13).

Inā ʻike mākou iā Iesū Kristo, ʻo ia kā mākou ola. «Uaʻike mākou ua make loa kekahi no kēlā kanaka, a make lākou a pau. No laila ʻo ia i make ai no nā mea a pau, i ʻole e ola hou ai ka poʻe e noho nei, akā ka poʻe i make a ala hoʻi no lākou » (2 Kolinito 5,14: 15).

E like me kā Iesu ʻaʻole kaawale, pēlā pū kekahi. Inā mākou e ʻike me ko Kristo, e kanu ʻia pū me ia, e ala hou kākou i ke ola hou me ia a noho ʻo ia i loko o mākou. Aia ʻo ia me mākou i loko o kā mākou mau pilikia a ma kā mākou kūleʻa no ka mea nona ke ola. Hāʻawi ʻo ia i ka luhi a loaʻa iā ia ke ʻike a ʻike mākou i ka hauʻoli e hōʻike pū i kona ola me ia.

Ua wehewehe ʻo Paulo ma kēia mau ʻōlelo: "Ua kau ʻia au me Iesū me Kristo. Ke ola nei au, akā ʻaʻole kēia, akā ua ola ʻo Kristo i loko oʻu. No ka mea, o koʻu manawa e noho nei i ke kino, ke ola nei au ma ke manaoio i ke Keiki a ke Akua, ka mea i aloha mai iaʻu a haawi mai oia iaʻu iho » (Galatia 2,20).

ʻ Jesus akula ʻo Iesū i kāna mau haumāna, "e hahai aʻe iaʻu. E hoʻomaopopo iā ʻoe iho me aʻu. E ʻae i ke ola kahiko e kau ʻia a lilo i ke ola hou e noho ai i loko o kou kino. E hana ʻia e ia. E ola wau i loko ou a hāʻawi wau iā ʻoe i ke ola mau loa. »

A hoʻokomo mākou i kā mākou ʻike iā Kristo, e pili pū me mākou i kona ʻeha a me ka ʻoliʻoli.
