Yakhiwe ndinokuqhayisa Pt. 2

Air iYordan kukho umfanekiso. Andizange bezinxibile ekhula nangona kakhulu, kuba abazali bam wala ukuba uthenge kum aphakame izihlangu eninzi. Andizange ndiyayithanda, kodwa ndandisazi andizange ndizakufumana izandla zam phezu iperi. Ngoko kwanyanzeleka ukuba ukumelana - ngokuthi ngathi abazange ayisekho. Kuye isibini elide iminyaka ezama ngokwam baqiniseke ukuba Reebok umnqamlezo uqeqesho ezinamagama. Kodwa ndathi abadala, Ndaqonda iYordan kwakunzima ngoyaba. Bonke abahlobo bam baba isibini okanye emibini, yaye omnye wabahlobo bam ithe phithi ziphum nabo.

Xa kwafika uhlobo olutsha ngaphandle, wayengathandi nje ukudlula ilokhari Foot basekuhlaleni xa wayekade ixesha; Wakha ubomi bakhe ngeenxa ukufumana ukuba isibini entsha. Wayeqiniseka wayesazi yonke imihla ukukhululwa Jordan, wayeza ukuthenga izihlangu efanayo imibala eyahlukileyo, yaye badla ngokuchitha kusasa ngoMgqibelo alinda phambi evenkile lwesihlangu. Lalibhabha engqondweni yam. Ngoko ekugqibeleni kwafuneka ndizibuze, “Yintoni eyodwa gqitha ezi zihlangu?! Ngokucacileyo ndiza into ekuphosayo kusini na.”

phithi Umhlobo wam kunye iYordan wenza ingxelo. Nokuba yinyaniso na okanye hayi, yena esithi elikhulu kwaye kwacaca ukuba ezi zihlangu ba bemele kulungiswe ubomi bakho. Loluphi uhlobo ingxelo ubomi bakho benze?

Uthini?

Kwi-yam emva wokugqibela, Ndandixambulisana ukuba sifanele sisebenzise amazwi ethu ukuze baqhayise kuThixo endaweni ngokwethu. Ke ndaya ngakumbi, esithi uThixo kuthi ngenxa yeso sizathu kanye. Kodwa andiqondi ukuba nokuqhayisa kwethu kufuneka umda amazwi ethu. Kuphela esifanele ukuqhayisa iNkosi ngemilebe yethu, sifanele ukuqhayisa ngaYe nobomi bethu.

Yonke into oyenzayo kwenza ingxelo ngoThixo. Wonke Sisidlo udle, lonke uvavanyo uthatha, every hour you work says something about your Creator. So even if you choose to keep your mouth closed about Him, yokuphila kwakho kuya kuqhubeka kuhlútha athi. Umbuzo: uthini?

Works Ezilungileyo unguThixo olungileyo

KwiNtshumayelo yakhe edumileyo, UYesu uthi oku: "Malukhanye ngokunjalo ukhanyiselo lwenu phambi kwabanye, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven” (Mateyu 5:16).

UYesu uxelela abaphulaphuli bakhe ukuba baphile ubomi eliqaqambileyo, wayezele yimisebenzi elungileyo, phambi kwabanye. Kodwa phawula Akathi, 'Ukuze abantu baya kubona indlela emangalisayo amaKristu. "Injongo a uzuko lwethu, kodwa abanye "bazukise [yethu] UYihlo osemazulwini. "Imisebenzi yethu elungileyo asoloko ekhomba uThixo wethu olungileyo.

Ycinge. Ithi ngoThixo ukuba sele abantu abazingcayo baphatha abanye nemiyalelo? Ntoni ukuba ukunxibelelana ukuba babebukele? Kuphela yaye akutshiwo ukuba indalo kaThixo yanto, kodwa kwakhona uthetha ukuba sele embindini iphela. Akukho nanye kwezo zinto kuyinyaniso, kwaye siza ngokusisiseko ubuxoki ngoThixo kwabanye.

Kodwa kuthekani ukuba endaweni, thina nto ibalasele wazincama babeka ubomi bethu phantsi abamelwane bethu? Kuthekani ukuba Wazinikela ukunceda ukuhlangabezana neemfuno zabanye? Loluphi uhlobo ingxelo ukuba wenze ngoThixo? Ithetha ukuba awuka embindini Indalo ukuba kukho into ezukileyo ukuphila ubomi bethu ngenxa. Ibonisa indalo kaThixo ukuba yamonga, kwaye sifuna ukuba sithandane nabanye njengoko sigqiba kuthandwa nguye.

Isigqibo ngasinye usenza lithuba lokuba esipilini, ebonisa ukulunga nguMenzi wakho. wesibini nganye ithuba lokuba icilikishe, showcasing snapshots of His glory. And when those around us catch glimpses of that goodness, sifumana ukubaxelela ukuba ukukhanya wethu lwalunokubonakalisa kuphela bakhe.

Inyaniso, ukuqhayisa ngobomi bethu nemilebe yethu uya isandla ngesandla. Ukuba siqhayisa kuphela kubomi bethu, abantu bacinga sibe ngabantu nje intle. Abayi ukuba ngubani uyasinyanzela ukuba baphila ubomi elungileyo. Ke ukuba amazwi ethu uthi uThixo imangalisayo, kodwa ubomi bethu bathi ngenye, amabango baphulukana ukuthembeka. Kufuneka senze zombini.

Yenza kucace

Ngaba ubomi bakho bathi izinto ezinkulu ngoThixo? Yakho krele bumper sticker kunye umvambo abangamaKristu ngokwaneleyo. ntoni yetsheki kuthini? Ntoni unxibelelana nabanye bathi? Ntoni yokusebenza yakho bathi? Ndiyazi ukuba baguquke imihla yokusilela ukuqhayisa ngaYe njengoko kufuneka. UThixo ungentla ngaphezu kwabo bonke, ngoko xa ubomi ngendlela yenza ukuba khangela encinane ndiza uphila ubuxoki.

Ingaba ikhona into Indalo exabiseke ngaphezu nomntu ongathandani naye, okanye ukunyuselwa umsebenzi, okanye isikere iYordan? Kunjalo kukho. Qiniseka ubomi bakho wenza kwacaca. Kungakhangeleka ingathi ngumsebenzi onzima, kodwa ungakhathazeki - wena wakha.

    Great perspective for us 80s and 90s kids who remember the Jordan era vividly. ngelishwa, I still see some of that kid in me and many times don’t realize it until after I’ve reprioritized just enough of my life to make a mess of things. Praise the lord for his grace and forgiveness! Glad I ran across your blog, keep writing for Him.

  3. HannahWellimpendulo

    This is so touching. It really makes you wonder how much is God’s light really shinning through your life.
    Time for me to make a rain check and a good evaluation.
    Thank you Trip Lee <3

  4. Michaelimpendulo

    Thanks is what I really struggle with, using my words to spread God’s glory. I like to let my actions do the talking, but that’s not enough and I’m becoming much more aware of that. Thanks for this and encouraging me to really go out there and spread His Word. I’m actually going out on my campus later to talk to people about Jesus. Gotta brag on Him!

  5. TreverlyHillzimpendulo

    This is indeed a very tough subject. But what about Christianity is easy, kunene? The difficulty for me arises in living my life so that people see that it is the light of God shining and not just the light of another nice guy. Question for the community: What are a few nonverbals that we can incorporate so that people can differentiate our lives from the lives of othernice & serving” abantu?
