Maneno Yaliyo Bora Kabisa Kutoka kwa Mungu (Dondoo)

Ingawa watu wengi wanaamini katika Mungu, ni wachache wanaoelewa ni nini maana ya imani katika Mungu, na ni nini wanachopaswa kufanya ili waupendeze moyo wa Mungu. Hii ni kwa sababu, hata ingawa watu wengi wanalifahamu neno “Mungu” na mafungu ya maneno kama “kazi ya Mungu”, hawamjui Mungu, sembuse kujua kazi ya Mungu. Si ajabu, basi, kwamba wale wote wasiomjua Mungu wamejawa na imani iliyovurugika. Watu hawachukulii imani kwa Mungu kwa uzito kwa kuwa kuamini Mungu ni jambo geni, jambo lisilo la kawaida sana kwao. Kwa njia hii, hawafikii mahitaji ya Mungu. Kwa maneno mengine, ikiwa watu hawamjui Mungu, hawajui kazi Yake, basi hawafai kwa matumizi na Mungu, sembuse kuweza kutimiza hamu ya Mungu. “Imani katika Mungu” inamaanisha kuamini kuwa kuna Mungu; hii ndiyo dhana rahisi zaidi ya imani katika Mungu. Zaidi ya hayo, kuamini kuwa kuna Mungu si sawa na kuamini katika Mungu kwa ukweli; bali, ni aina ya imani sahili ikiwa na vipengee vya uzito vya kidini. Imani ya kweli katika Mungu ina maana kupitia maneno na kazi ya Mungu kwa msingi wa imani kuwa Mungu ndiye mkuu juu ya vitu vyote. Kwa hivyo mtawekwa huru kutokana na tabia yenu ya upotovu, mtatimiza hamu ya Mungu, na mtapata kumjua Mungu. Ni kwa kupitia safari ya aina hii tu ndio mnaweza kusemekana kuwa mnaamini katika Mungu. Ilhali watu mara nyingi huona kuamini katika Mungu kama jambo rahisi sana na la kipuuzi tu. Imani ya watu wa aina hii haina maana na haitawahi kupata idhini ya Mungu, kwa sababu wanatembea katika njia mbaya. Leo, kuna wale ambao bado wanaamini Mungu katika nyaraka, katika mafundisho ya dini yaliyo matupu. Hawana habari kuwa imani yao katika Mungu haina dutu, na hawawezi kupata idhini ya Mungu, na bado wanaomba kupata amani na neema ya kutosha kutoka kwa Mungu. Tunafaa kuweka kituo na kujiuliza wenyewe: Je, kuamini kwa Mungu linaweza kuwa jambo rahisi ya yote duniani? Je, kuamini kwa Mungu hakumaanishi chochote zaidi ya kupokea neema nyingi kutoka kwa Mungu? Je, watu wanaoamini kwa Mungu na hawamjui, na wanaamini kwa Mungu ila wanamuasi; je watu kama hawa wanaweza kutimiza hamu ya Mungu?

True Meaning of Faith in God

Though many people believe in God, few understand what faith in God means and what to do to be after His heart. For they may know the term “God,” they know phrases like “the work of God,” but they don’t know God, and they don’t know His work.

I

So then, all those who don’t know God are so confused in their belief. They don’t take it seriously ’cause it’s too strange to them. They fall short of God’s demands. Those who don’t know Him or His work cannot be fit for His use, much less fulfill His desire. True faith in God means experiencing God’s words and all the work He does based on a belief that He’s holding all things and holding all sovereignty, so you’ll shake off your corrupt disposition, fulfill God’s desire and come to know God. This is the journey of faith and believing, truly believing in God.

“Faith in God” means believing He’s real. It’s the basic view of faith in God. But it is not the true belief, just faith with strong religious thoughts. Some think faith is simple. Their belief is meaningless. They can’t gain God’s approval by walking on the wrong paths. True faith in God means experiencing God’s words and all the work He does based on a belief He’s holding all things and holding all sovereignty, so you’ll shake off your corrupt disposition, fulfill God’s desire and come to know God. This is the journey of faith and believing, truly believing in God.

Those who believe through letters don’t know their faith has no substance. They can’t gain God’s approval. But still they pray for peace and grace. We should ask ourselves today: Is faith in God the simplest thing? Could it be just getting His grace? Can those who don’t know but fight Him please Him? True faith in God means experiencing God’s words and all the work He does based on a belief that He’s holding all things and holding all sovereignty, so you’ll shake off your corrupt disposition, fulfill God’s desire and come to know God. This is the journey of faith and believing, truly believing in God, truly believing in God.
