Ukuba umKristu akubonakali fun abantu.

UbuKristu uye ayithole idumela lokuba Killjoy. Kuyinto kubantu yisicefe nabantu asebekhulile. Omunye rapper ingoma uthi, "Uma uyesaba, ke ukuthi liyaya esontweni. "amasonto Ngokusobala kobuKristu zingaba for novalo, amapunk owesabayo. Abantu bacabanga eba umKristu kusho ukuthi kufanele bagqoke amasudi ilokwe elide, futhi ulalele umculo yobuKristu ezimbi, futhi asiyeke cool. Okokuqala nje, ezinye Y'all ingangeni kuphole kwasekuqaleni, kodwa lokho omunye indaba.

Noma ingabe ukukusiza uhlangabezana ukunama, yokuzijabulisa, futhi injabulo ngomqondo yabo yangempela? Uye wonke umuntu esikweni lethu ayithole it right? Ingabe ubuKristu futhi kumnandi emaphethelweni okuphambene spectrum?

Ngicabanga esinye sezizathu ezenza abantu bakhuluma ngokuthuthukisa ubuKristu ngale ndlela ngenxa amaKristu indlela kuvezwa abezindaba. Noma yimuphi umfana Christian in a movie noma imidlalo ye-TV kuyisiqalo esibi kunazo zonke. Ubathola ngokuvamile wahlulela futhi Corny.

I. No - Ukuba umKristu Esingakusho Neze Ukuphela Fun Yakho

Uma ngempela ucabanga ngakho, kungcono umbuzo kuxaka ukubuza. "Ingabe eba umKristu asho ekupheleni ukunama, yokuzijabulisa, futhi injabulo empilweni yami?"Ithi into ngoNkulunkulu ukuze abuze lo mbuzo. Uma singamashekeli ayikhulu izindlela umKristu nokumhlubuka uNkulunkulu ngokholo kuKristu, ke ukuba uhlalisa kuhle okutjhiwo umbuzo ukuthi becela: Ingabe UNkulunkulu Ufuna bephila un-kujabulise? Ukuze siphendule ngokuthi yebo uthi into engesilo iqiniso ngaye. Muhle uMdali wakho konke okuphilayo. Yebo yena ufuna ukuba ujabulele ukuphila okuthenjiswe He qamba.

Noma like Steven Spielberg wanted you hate movie yakhe, noma wayefuna ukuba wozele off ngoba wazonda Lincoln kangaka. Well Cha! Benza-ke, ngokwengxenye, ukuze abanye ukuyithanda.

Ukuphila uhlukile, ngoba akuyona nje ezinye uhlobo oluthile lokuzijabulisa, kodwa kukhona ukufana. Esikwaziyo emBhalweni ukuthi uNkulunkulu unguNkulunkulu omuhle. He qamba ukuphila.

"Kodwa wena ngeke ukuthole iyiphi amavesi enjengaleyo.

Kunalokho uzothola uNkulunkulu zokufuna sikwazi ukujabulela ukuphila kwethu. Ngiya ukufunda umbhangqwana amavesi Ngicabanga iphuzu lokhu.

Abantu bacabanga UNkulunkulu ufuna ukuba sihlale ezintweni ezinhle, kodwa lokho amanga. Lalela James 1:16-17.

Ningadukiswa, bazalwane bami abathandekayo. Izipho zonke ezinhle neziphiwo zonke ezipheleleyo zivela phezulu, zehla zivela kuYise wezibane nobani akukho ukushintshashintsha noma ithunzi ngenxa ushintsho. (James 1:16-17)

Kuthiwani ngoJesu? Ingabe unezimiso kokukusho ngalokhu? kuJohane 10, UJesu uqhathanisa Ngokwakhe nge abafundisi bamanga. Lezi izindlela ezisetshenziswa abafundisi bamanga ahole NTU astray; kade abelusi ababi. UJesu ubabiza ngokuthi amasela.

"Isela utshontsha, ukubulala, futhi ababhubhise. Mina ngizile ukuze babe lempilo, babe layo iphuphume. " (John 10:10)

nalokho abantu bavame ukusho in isiko lethu Lokhu iya ngqo. Bacabanga uNkulunkulu ufuna ukuntshontsha. Steal injabulo yethu, injabulo, kanye nenkululeko yokuzikhethela. Lokho UNkulunkulu ufuna ukuba basibulale futhi ehudulela nathi phansi. Kodwa uJesu uthi, Lowo wezela ubufakazi ukuba ngiphethe okuchichimayo noma ukuphila okugcwele. He wants us to live our lives to the full. We’ll talk more about that later.

In IHubo 16, UDavide usuke ekukhulumela noNkulunkulu futhi nakhu akushoyo.

Ngakho besondela kuNkulunkulu aliholeli nokudabuka isidina, kuholela enjabulweni. Hhayi nje neyodwa intokozo, kodwa kunekujabula. Futhi kukhona izinjabulo. imizuzu Not emihlanu noma iminyaka emihlanu injabulo, kodwa kunekujabula phakadze naphakadze.

Bengikwazi izinsuku namanye amavesi afana le. UbuKristu abuyona isitha injabulo, yokuzijabulisa, kanye nenjabulo. Empeleni endleleni enjabulweni yeqiniso, yokuzijabulisa, kanye nenjabulo.

II. Ngezinye izikhathi – Ukulandela uJesu kuyosho ukuphela Amanye Fun Zethu

Angifuni ukunidukisa. Ukuba umKristu kusho kuzodingeka ukuphika ngokwakho. Kukhona izinto ujabulele ukuthi zimbi ngawe, izinto ngokuhamba kwesikhathi ukweba injabulo esikhundleni ukuyinikeza.

Ukudakwa kubonakala fun kodwa kuholela ezinqumweni stupid.

Kuyindlela ejulile ungakwazi zinike away omunye umuntu. Ngezinye izikhathi elele kubonakala sengathi kuholela kumnandi kodwa ilimaza kithi nakwabanye.

Njengoba sinezinto wavuma kakade, UNkulunkulu wadala zonke zokuphila futhi Uyakwazi ukuthi engabe kufanele kujatshulelwe. imiyalo yakhe izuzisa thina. Ingakwesokunene sakhe sangesekudla kunekujabula phakadze naphakadze. Futhi lapho singamlaleli, sesisithathile isinyathelo kude injabulo yangempela. UNkulunkulu akaqhubeki thina nokuphila okuhle; sizigcine nokuphila okuhle lapho singamlaleli.

Futhi njengoba senzo sothando uJesu ubiza nathi sizincishe.

Wayesethi kubo bonke, "Uma umuntu ethanda ukuza emva kwami, makazidele, athabathe isiphambano sakhe imihla ngemihla, angilandele. " (Luka 9:23)

Kusho ukuba ukuphika ngokwakho? Wukuziphika kusho ukwenqaba ngokwakho. Ukwenqaba ngokwakho. Ukwenqaba lokho ngokwemvelo sifuna ukuba benze.

Lokhu akuzwakali nice and Fluffy. Cishe wayengeke abeke ukuthi ekhadini lwezenzakalo. Lena akuyona kuyakhuthaza abafundi. Ingabe UJesu nje alawula asho nokusho amazwi enhlamba?

Uma senza babephelele, usicela ukuba sizincishe bekuyoba engenangqondo. Ukube sasikhona njalo ukuthi bakahle futhi bahlakaniphe usicela ukuba sizincishe bekuyoba ongaziwa. Kodwa uma siyakucela kunemaphutsa usicela ukuba sizincishe unothando. Uma siyakucela idukisa futhi zimoshekile, usicela ukuba sizincishe kuwusizo.

Isibonelo sikaSolomoni

Akhiwe ngidayisa kudlula ngokushesha, Injabulo yangaleso abaguquguqukayo, ngoba ozinzile, rock Injabulo yangaleso esiqinile.

III. Sibonisa Kanjani Ukuthi Jabulela Izinto Abathambekele?

Siphila ngokukholwa kuMdali wethu.

Sonke ngikuphila ngokukholwa

Kungakhathaliseki ukuthi siyaqaphela noma cha, sonke abantu bokholo. Gcwele ntu. amaKristu, AmaSulumane, amaHindu, amaBuddha, akaziwa, UNkulunkulu akekho-sonke bukhoma ngokholo, siphila ekukhanyeni kwalokho esikukholelwayo e yisiphi isikhathi. Labo nina abasubathi abenza kanzima ngempela. Kungani? Ngoba ukholwa kuzokwenza kangcono emdlalweni wakho. Noma kanjani ngalokhu? Abanye ufaka ikheli ku-Google Maps ukuze uthole izindawo. Kungani? Ngoba wena wayekholelwa ukuthi ifoni yakho wayeyobanika wena tinkhombandlela kwesokudla. Ukube namkholwa ifoni yakho kwakuyoba ukukukhohlisa, engicabanga emayini enza ngezinye izikhathi, ubungeke belisebenzisa. Ngangibona go on and on. Kodwa sonke ngikuphila ngokukholwa.

Ngicabanga impilo enhle ophila ngokukholwa unguNkulunkulu omuhle. Uyasitshela ukuthi lokujabulela indalo yaKhe abathambekele. Esiholela enjabulweni.

Noma nini thina lutho ngaphandle kukaNkulunkulu njengoba kuphele aphathe ngokwako siyakucela lalingekho kahle.

Asitijabulise akwanele

Kodwa mhlawumbe ucabanga, Angifuni ukuthi. Ngifuna ukuba ujabule. Kokuba bayabukana sengathi bafuna ukuhleka, ujabulela ngokwakho akukhona konke ukuphila is about. Uma ucabanga ukuthi, uku okuthile scary. Uma uhlela ukuphila kwakho ngokusekelwe esisekelweni fun, Kuzofika ukuwa phansi uma ukuphila kunzima. Fun, kokuba bayabukana sengathi bafuna ukuhleka, ujabulela wena manje akwanele. Kungani ungathandazi angalandeli injabulo yaphakade?

Futhi akwanele ukuba kulinde kuze kamuva. Kungani ulinda ukuqala abaphilayo? Misa nokujaha into inkohliso futhi uqale nokujaha into yangempela.

Kufana ukukuziba lokho NBA, ngoba uthanda ukudlala NBA 2K ku-PlayStation. Misa nokujaha into inkohliso, ugone into yangempela etholakalayo. C.S. Lewis waveza inhliziyo efanayo lapho esho lokhu:

“Siyizidalwa isigamu ezithandayo fooling mayelana neminikelo kanye nobulili kanye ukuvelela lapho nenjabulo elingapheli is besinika, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased” - C.S. Lewis, The Isisindo Glory

Ngangivame ukucabanga ukuphila kwakuwukukhanya zonke lezi yesikhashana. Bese ngiba umKristu. Kwakukhona izinto Ngafunda yasheshe njengomKristu ukuthi kudilizwe picture yami endala yokuphila enhle. Nasi isibonelo.

Kufa kuyinzuzo

Sonke uke wezwa abantu ukukhuluma ngokufa ngezikhathi ezithile. Sike wezwa abantu besho, "Akukho lutho ekuphileni liqinisekile kodwa ukufa kanye nokukhokha intela."Omunye rapper yayithi, "Ngizama ukushaya ekuphileni ngoba angikwazi bakopele ukufa." Abantu baqonda ukuthi ukufa kungagwenywa ngeke. Kodwa njengoba umKristu osemusha, Ngafunda ivesi ngokufa eBhayibhelini ukuthi kwakunjani lutho ngake lithethwa. Umphostoli uPawulu wakhuluma ngokufa ngendlela ongaziwa. UPawulu akazange nje athi ukufa ayezobanika lona ngokuqinisekile, Wakuthatha elinye igxathu eliya phambili. Uthe, "Ukufa lwenzuzo." Ini!?

Ukufa uma ubuchopho bakho, inhliziyo yakho, futhi amaphaphu akho ayeke ukwenza umsebenzi wabo. Ukufa kusho isiphetho sokuphila kanye noqhekeko phakathi komuntu namalungu omkhaya. Ukufa kusho umsebenzi wokuphila yakho phezu. Ngokungafani nezinye izilingo zethu, ukufa kuyinto, umuntu efa, ngokwezwi nezwi "ekupheleni kwezwe"– Ekupheleni kweThemu le eyodwa noma kunjalo. Ke ngingabenza kanjani ukufa bube lwenzuzo? Angikwazi ukwenza imali uma ngifa? Angikwazi ukwandisa isimo sami uma ngifa. It nje akaphenduli nemibono yami endala yokuphila enhle.

Well phambi kwami ​​ukuba siqonde ukuthi uPawulu wayesho yila mazwi ukuze amane kufa kuyinzuzo-kwadingeka ukuba baqonde ezine ukuthi safika phambi kwabo. In Filipi 1 UPawulu uyachaza ukuthi kungani ibonakala ok enamaphutha ukuqhubeka kwakho uphila noma ebulawa abashushisi bakhe. Ubhala evesini 21, "Ukuphila IS UKristu. "Ngalawo mazwi, Umphostoli wangitshela ukuthi ukuphila ingabe ngempela mayelana- hhayi imali, Akuwona umsebenzi wami, hhayi ngisho umndeni- kodwa uJesu. Kwakungenzeka kanjani ukuba kwami ​​uyigovu, isimo-ngokweqile yalelozwe ukusinda eduze lelo qiniso?

Ukuphila ayikho injongo ahluke Kristu, ngoba uKristu yikho konke mayelana. Ngakho-ke ukuze ukujabulela izinto abathambekele, esinawo ukuze azijabulele ngendlela efakazela ukuthi iqiniso.

Konke kungcono uma wajabulela in mongo sasihloselwe ukuba. Lapho senza noma yini njengengelosi Ukuphela ngokwakho ukwelapha akulungile. Kufanele nabo njengendlela ekupheleni inkazimulo kaNkulunkulu.

Kufanele thina nje zenza ubulili nabesifazane abaningi ngangokunokwenzeka? Noma ngisho nje noma ubani uku ubuhlobo obuseduze? Sex Is best benaso isivumelwano somshado. Abantu ababili uzibophezele komunye nomunye ukuze ukuphila kwabo, ayiyi ndawo. Asikho isidingo sokuba yokungazethembi, amahloni. Ubungane best nambitheka ngaphakathi lo umongo. Kukhona ukuthobeka, ukuthethelelwa, umusa, ukuthanda.

Imali is best wajabulela uma ekhulekela. Power is best wajabulela uma ekhulekela. Kwenzekani uma uhamba? Iwayini ngokulinganisela lingcono kunamafutha nokudakwa. Futhi f Yebo ungakwazi ukujabulela umculo namabhayisikobho. Kodwa cabanga ngendlela ezihlobana ngayo inshokutsi zonke zokuphila: uKristu. Konke best wajabulela uma okufakiwe kuze Kristu.

abaphukile We, futhi uKristu weza kusibeke babuyelane. Lapho esimkhulekelayo imali, noma ubungane, noma ubulili, kungcono Kuyicala uNkulunkulu. Ngakho simelwa liyokwahlulelwa kulabo saba ngeziphambeko. Kodwa uNkulunkulu wathumela uKristu. UJesu akazange abe nenkinga ngokuba umuntu ajabulele ukudla izinto ezingalungile, noma ejabulela izinto ezinhle ngendlela onesono. Nokho uJesu wathatha isijeziso amacala ethu esiphambanweni. Wavuka ethuneni bese ubeke ithuba lokuphila okuphakade.

Uma sizobe ukushiya izindlela zethu bakudala futhi zinamathele kuKristu ngakho singakwazi ukuxolelwa, futhi singangena ku enjabulweni yeNkosi yethu. Thina ngeke siphile ukuphila kwethu best manje. Kodwa uzoba kusinika injabulo kanye nenjabulo kuze kube phakade.

    Amen! Thank you for sharing and for the encouragement.

    “Ukuze ukuphila kunguKristu, and to die is gain.” Filipi 1:21 – Lord, may we truly live this out in our lives! Thank You for the freedom we have in You.

    Enlightening persepective on the purpose of joy and pleasure in our lives. Really enjoyed how you incorporated that quote from C.S. Lewis referring to the child playing with mudpies. We can enjoy life to the fullest as Christians!

    Yes indeed to die is to gain. Christ died that we might live and we ought to live for Him. As young people let’s die in worldly pleasures and be alive in heavenly treasures.

    I appreciate the blog Trip Lee. I struggled with this a lot while I was in high school, even at times now while in collegejust trying to understand how to enjoy things in way that testifies that Jesus is everything and what that looks like lived out. Thank you again.

    Hewu. I’m speechless. Like really ? I mean I thought I got to change myslef before I come to christ but was wrong.

    Awesome stuff! I am giving a chapel message to teenaged boys this weekend on what it means to be of God’s workmanship. These has great points that I will most likely cover with them too.

  9. ChasePhendula

    Great message, Trip. Keep on being a light in this dark world where the majority of celebs & media try to keep Christ out of everything possible. Good people, saved by His blood, will always win in the end!

    I must sayThis is a message from God. I talkd about this yesterday amidst my fellow youth and they saw me like an outcast. I feel relieved and strenghtened with this now. No going backJesus ever. More of God’s grace bro.

  11. EnanePhendula

    Thank you bro. I really needed this. As a young Christian teen, I’ve often gotten the wrong interpretation of what pleasure and fun is. But after reading this, I feel like I understand a little better. I really appreciate this. ngiyabona futhi, God bless you and the family. Love you in Jesus

    iposi Great, i really liked the illustrations.

    If we are truly saved, and God created in us a new clean heart, his commandments won’t be greivous. (1john)

    Musa uthole nginamanga, we still need teaching, but if we are saved there are things we won’t want to do. Temptation will still come no doubt, but God won’t allow us to be attempted above what we can bear. He will create an escape.

  19. JoshPhendula

    Trip this is amazing! Ngibonga kakhulu! I love your sermons, they make me realized we really do have a good God. Thank you bro! Keep the good work up.
    Ngikhathazekile 17 years old, and I just know God has amazing future laid down for me.

    I also want to point out in your sermon that is written. You forgot a letter lolOFyou wroteflol Just caught my eye that’s all. It’s where
    you said:
    “… Futhi f Yebo ungakwazi ukujabulela umculo namabhayisikobho. Kodwa cabanga ngendlela ezihlobana ngayo inshokutsi zonke zokuphila: uKristu. Everything is best enjoyed when it’s submitted to Christ.

    I would love to hear more! Thank you bro!

  21. JustinPhendula

    Wow you are an amazing writer and teacher! The way in which you preach the Gospel is so enlightening. I could listen to and read your sermons all day! They are true food for the soul. God bless you and your family!

  22. OlobzPhendula

    Bro, I admire you more as a preacher than a musician and you are my favorite rapper. I would really love the opportunity to speak to on a minister to minister basis. I really love your heart for Him. If I may, I don’t think you should give up music 100%. I believe its a platform God has given you to edify the saints and evangelize the sinner. I pray you’re able to reconcile the passion I know too well to shepherd God’s people and your amazing musical gifts. God bless you dear brother!

    The souls are so important to God! And wow when I view the posts of so many I’m in awe of the work God is doing through you. Its amazing. Keep on keeping on. Bless every seed and the water Gods used you to disperse on His beautiful Earth. May He grow and tender all the seeds.
