Imibhalo yeLigugu Apha

 

ZI ngoxolo? Isibhalo sisixelela ukuba uThixo wethu nguThixo woxolo. Ukanti uSt. Paul wafundisa ukuba:

Kuyimfuneko kuthi ukuba sidlule kubunzima obuninzi ukuze singene eBukumkanini bukaThixo. (Ufundo lwanamhlanje lokuqala)

Ukuba kunjalo, kunokubonakala ngathi ubomi bobuKristu bumiselwe ukuba bube noxolo. Kodwa alukho nje uxolo olunokwenzeka, bazalwana noodade, luyenzeka kubalulekile. Ukuba awufumani luxolo kwisaqhwithi sangoku nesizayo, uya kuthathwa yiyo. Uloyiko kunye noloyiko luya kulawula kunokuthembela kunye nothando. Ke, sinokulufumana njani uxolo lokwenene xa kugquba imfazwe? Nanga amanyathelo amathathu alula okwakha Indlu yoXolo.

Inyathelo lokuqala lokugcina uxolo lokwenyani kukusoloko ugcina ukuthanda kukaThixo, okuchazwe kuqala kwimithetho yakhe — ngelizwi elinye ethembekileyo. Kukho ucwangco olungcwele olusekwe nguMdali kwaye ngaphandle kokuba siphila kulolo hlobo, asisayi kuba noxolo, kuba…

… AkangoThixo wesiphithiphithi, ngowoxolo. (1 Kor. 14:33)

Cinga ngendlela uMhlaba awabekwa ngayo ngesandla saKhe kumjikelo othile okhethekileyo nasekujikelezeni ilanga. Kunokwenzeka ntoni ukuba umhlaba ngequbuliso “uyithobele” imithetho olawulwa yiyo? Ungathini xa ishiya yonke into kancinci kwindlela yayo okanye itshintshe ukuthambeka kwayo ngamaqondo nje ambalwa? Kuza kubakho isiphithiphithi. Ubomi emhlabeni buya kutshintshwa ngokumangalisayo ukuba abuzukutshatyalaliswa. Ngoku kukho umzekeliso apha: naxa izaqhwithi zigubungele ubuso bomhlaba, naxa inyikima inyikima iziseko zayo, naxa izikhukula nemililo kunye nemetorites zibonakalisa umphezulu ... iplanethi iyaqhubeka ukuthobela imithetho eyayisusileyo, kwaye Ngenxa yoko, iyaqhubeka amaxesha ngamaxesha emva kwexesha isiqhamo.

Ke xa izaqhwithi kunye neenyikima kunye neentlekele zikugungqisa kwaye iimotorites zezilingo ezingalindelekanga zihlasela umhlaba wakho, umthetho-siseko wokuqala ekufumaneni uxolo lwenene uhlala uhlala uthembekile, ukuhlala "kumjikelezo" wentando kaThixo ukuze wena qhubeka uthwala isiqhamo.

Njengokuba isebe lingenako ukuthwala isiqhamo ngokwalo ngaphandle kokuba lihleli emdiliyeni, ngokunjalo nani aninako ngaphandle kokuba nihlala kum. (UYohane 15: 4)

Kodwa kukho okungakumbi ekuthembekeni ngaphandle nje kokwenza "…

 

II. Ithemba

Njengokuba indlu kufuneka yakhiwe phezu kwesiseko, noxolo kufuneka lube nesiseko, njengoko ndicacisile ngentla, yintando kaThixo. INkosi yethu ifundisile:

… Wonke umntu owamameleyo la mazwi am, angawenzi kodwa uya kuba njengesidenge esakha indlu yaso phezu kwentlabathi. (Mat. 7:26)

Kodwa isiseko asinakukhusela kwimvula, umoya, kunye nesichotho, nokuba sihle kangakanani. Kuya kufuneka wakhe iindonga kunye a uphahla.

Iindonga ukholo.

Ukuthembeka kwintando kaThixo akukuthinteli kwizilingo, ngamanye amaxesha izilingo ezinzima. Kwaye ngaphandle kokuba uthembele kuye, ungahendeka ukuba ucinge ukuba uThixo ukulibele kwaye wakulahla ekubangela ukuba utyhafe kwaye ulahlekelwe luxolo. Ukuthemba, ke, yimeko yokuthembela kuThixo, nokuba imvula, umoya, isichotho okanye ukukhanya kwelanga kuyakuthululela. Kukuthembela okuqinisekileyo, okwakhelwe phezu kokuthanda kukaThixo, okunika umntu incasa yokuqala yolo xolo luxhaphakileyo oluthenjiswa nguYesu kwiVangeli namhlanje:

Ndishiya uxolo kuni; uxolo lwam ndikunika. Hayi njengoko ndikunika lona umhlaba ndikunika lona. Intliziyo yenu mayingakhathazeki okanye yoyike.

Le ntembeko kufuneka iye kumaxesha edabi lokomoya xa uzisa imvula, umoya, kunye nesichotho kuwe ngenxa yesono sakho. USathana ufuna ukuba uyikholelwe into yokuba, ukuba uyawa, ukuba uyakhubeka, ukuba uthe wakhukuliseka nakancinane nje ukusuka "kwindlela ejikeleza", awunako ukuba noxolo.

Siyakholelwa, umzekelo, ukuba siyiphumelele idabi lokomoya kufuneka sizoyise zonke iimpazamo, singaze sinikezele ekuhendweni, singabi saphinde sibe nezo buthathaka okanye iintsilelo. Kodwa kuloo mmandla, siqinisekile ukuba siyoyiswa! —Fr. UJacques Philippe, Ukukhangela kunye nokugcina uxolo, p. 11-12

Ngapha koko, ixesha lokuqala u Yesu abonakala ngalo kuBapostile emva kovuko—Emva kokuba bemkile kuye emyezweni—Utsho:

Uxolo malube nawe. (UYohane 21:19)

Kuboni, okokuqala nokuphambili, apho uYesu andisa uxolo, Lowo weza kusixolelanisa noBawo. Ummangaliso wenceba kaThixo kukuba ngowona moni ulusizana onelungelo lokufumana oko. Ke, akufuneki siphulukane noxolo nakusilela kwethu, kodwa endaweni yoko, siqale kwakhona ngokuthobeka. Kuba iindonga zoxolo azifezekanga, kodwa ukuthembela.

Injongo yokuqala yokulwa ngokomoya, apho imizamo yethu kufuneka ibhekiswe ngaphezu kwayo yonke into, akuyi kuhlala ifumana ukunqoba (ngaphezu kwezilingo zethu, ubuthathaka bethu, njl.), Kunoko ukufunda ukugcina uxolo lwentliziyo phantsi kwayo yonke into iimeko, nokuba woyisiwe. Kungale ndlela kuphela esinokuthi silandele enye injongo, kukuphelisa ukusilela kwethu, iimpazamo zethu, ukungafezeki kwethu kunye nezono zethu. —Fr. UJacques Philippe, Ukukhangela kunye nokugcina uxolo, p. 12

Hayi! USathana sele eliphumelele idabi xa umphefumlo uphulukana noxolo! Kuba umphefumlo ophazamisekileyo uphazamisa abo bamngqongileyo. Uxolo asikokungabikho kwemfazwe, kodwa bubukho bukaThixo. Ke lowo ugcina olo xolo lunguThixo uba ukuhlala kakuhle kwabo bamngqongileyo, abo banxanelwe uxolo ngokufanayo. Impendulo kwiNdumiso namhlanje ithi:

Abahlobo bakho bayabazisa, Nkosi, ubuqaqawuli bobukumkani bakho.

Kungenxa yokuba intliziyo yoxolo ithwele kuye uBukumkani bukaThixo.

 

III. Uthando

Olu xolo, obu Bukumkani, budluliselwa uthando. Ukugcina ukuthanda kukaThixo kunye nokubeka ukholo kuye sisiqalo, kodwa ayisosiphelo ekufumaneni uxolo. Kufanele ukuba ikhona uthando. Cinga ngekhoboka elenza yonke imiyalelo yenkosi yalo, ukanti, lihlala lizimele kwaye limoyikisa kubudlelwane obubandayo nobukude. Ngokunjalo, indlu enesiseko esihle neendonga, kodwa ingenophahla, iya kuba likhaya elibandayo nelingamkelekanga. Uthando luphahla oluvala uxolo, uphahla olu…

… Luthwala iinto zonke, lukholelwa zonke izinto, luthemba izinto zonke, lunyamezela iinto zonke. (1 Kor. 13: 7)

Uthando luphahla kuphela olungenakuchukunyiswa
imimoya yenzondo, isichotho selishwa, kunye nemvula yezilingo zemihla ngemihla ngokuqinisekileyo ezizayo. Ukuba uloyiko lukuhlutha uxolo, luthando oluphosa lonke uloyiko. Uthando yeyona nto inika injongo ku-Yehova isiseko kwaye ibambe iindonga kunye. Uthando lwenza ukuthobela kube luvuyo, kwaye ukuthembela kubumnandi. Ngamafutshane, iNdlu yoXolo iya kuba yi Indlu Yovuyo.

Kwaye xa iNdlu enjalo yakhiwe, imiphefumlo ejikeleze wena iya kufuna ukuhlala kukhuseleko kunye nentuthuzelo, kwindawo yokuhlala Uxolo.

Kodwa kuqala, kufuneka uyakhe.

Zuza umoya woxolo, kwaye amawaka ngeenxa zakho aya kusindiswa. —St. Iiserafi zeSarov

… Uxolo lukaKristu malulawule iintliziyo zenu… (Col 3:14)
