Maneno ya Mungu ya Kila Siku | Namna Petro Alivyopata Kumjua Yesu | Dondoo 520

Kwenye kipindi hiki akimfuata Yesu, Petro alikuwa na maoni mengi kuhusu Yeye na siku zote Alimhukumu kutokana na mtazamo wake. Ingawa alikuwa na kiwango fulani cha uelewa wa Roho Mtakatifu, Petro hakuwa ametiwa nuru sana, na haya yanaonekana kwenye maneno yake aliposema: “Lazima nimfuate yeye aliyetumwa na Baba wa mbinguni. Lazima nimtambue yule aliyechaguliwa na Roho Mtakatifu.” Hakuelewa mambo yale ambayo Yesu alifanya na wala hakupata nuru yoyote. Baada ya kumfuata kwa muda fulani alivutiwa na kile alichofanya Yeye na kusema, na kwa Yesu Mwenyewe. Alikuja kuhisi kwamba Yesu alivutia upendo na heshima; alipenda kujihusisha na Yeye na kuwa kando Yake, na kusikiliza maneno yake Yesu kulimpa ruzuku na msaada. Kwenye kipindi kile alichomfuata Yesu, Petro alitazama na kutia moyoni kila kitu kuhusu maisha Yake: Matendo Yake, maneno Yake, mwendo Wake na maonyesho Yake. Alipata uelewa wa kina kwamba Yesu hakuwa kama binadamu wa kawaida. Ingawa mwonekano Wake wa binadamu ulikuwa wa kawaida kabisa, Alijaa upendo, huruma, na ustahimilivu kwa binadamu. Kila kitu alichofanya au kusema kilikuwa chenye msaada mkubwa kwa wengine, na akiwa kando Yake, Petro aliona na kujifunza mambo ambayo hakuwahi kuyaona wala kuyasikia awali. Aliona kwamba ingawa Yesu hakuwa na kimo kikubwa wala ubinadamu usio wa kawaida, Alikuwa na umbo la ajabu na lisilo la kawaida kwa kweli. Ingawa Petro hakuweza kuyafafanua kabisa, aliweza kuona kwamba Yesu alikuwa na mwenendo tofauti na kila mtu mwingine, kwani Aliyafanya mambo yaliyokuwa tofauti kabisa na yale yaliyofanywa na binadamu wa kawaida. Tangu wakati huo akiwa na Yesu, Petro alitambua pia kwamba hulka Yake ilikuwa tofauti na ile ya binadamu wa kawaida. Siku zote alikuwa na mwenendo dhabiti na hakuwahi kuwa na haraka, hakupigia chuku wala kupuuza chochote, na aliyaishi maisha Yake kwa njia iliyokuwa ya kawaida na ya kuvutia. Katika mazungumzo, Yesu alikuwa mwenye madaha na uzuri, mwenye uwazi na mchangamfu ilhali pia mtulivu, na Hakuwahi kupoteza heshima Yake katika utekelezaji wa kazi Yake. Petro aliona kwamba Yesu wakati mwingine alikuwa mnyamavu, ilhali nyakati nyingine alizungumza kwa mfululizo. Wakati mwingine Alikuwa na furaha sana kiasi cha kwamba aligeuka na kuwa mwepesi na mchangamfu kama njiwa, na ilhali nyakati nyingine Alihuzunika sana kiasi cha kwamba hakuzungumza kamwe, ni kana kwamba alikuwa mama aliyeathirika na hali ya hewa. Nyakati nyingine Alijawa na hasira, kama askari jasiri anayefyatuka kuwaua adui, na wakati mwingine hata kama simba anayeguruma. Nyakati nyingine Alicheka; nyakati nyingine aliomba na kulia. Haijalishi ni vipi Yesu alivyotenda, Petro alizidi kuwa na upendo na heshima isiyokuwa na mipaka Kwake. Kicheko cha Yesu kilimjaza kwa furaha, huzuni Yake ikamtia simanzi, hasira Yake ikamtetemesha, huku huruma Zake, msamaha na ukali vyote vikamfanya kuja kumpenda Yesu kwa kweli, na akaweza kumcha na kumtamani kwa kweli. Bila shaka, Petro alikuja kutambua haya yote kwa utaratibu baada ya kuishi kando yake Yesu kwa miaka michache.

Peter Focused on Knowing God Practically

I

During Peter’s time with Jesus, he found so much to love, so many things to emulate, so much to supply him. He saw much of God in Jesus, and took all of Him to heart, all about His life, His words and all His actions. Peter learned that Jesus was no ordinary man. Though His appearance was just like any other, He was full of love and empathy and mercy for mankind. All He did and said gave great aid to all. Peter gained so much he’d never seen before.

II

Peter saw that Jesus looked like a common man but had a different air Peter could not explain. He saw Jesus was unique, His deeds different from others. He had a special character and a slow and steady hand. Jesus never overstated or minimized a thing. He lived His life in a way that revealed a character both normal and very admirable. He spoke plain with grace, cheerful yet serene. He kept His dignity throughout all of His work.

III

Peter saw Jesus was quiet, sometimes speaking on and on. He could be happy as a dove, or He could be sad and silent. He’d show anger like a soldier or a roaring lion. There were times that He would laugh, other times He prayed and wept. However Jesus acted, Peter grew to have a love and respect for Jesus that was boundless. Jesus’ laughter brought him joy. Jesus’ sorrow brought him grief. Jesus’ anger made him tremble in fear. But Jesus’ demands, mercy, forgiveness fostered true love, reverence, and longing for Him.
