“Kwathi kusihlwa ngosuku lokuqala lwesonto, iminyango ivaliwe lapho abafundi babebuthenekhona ngokwesaba amaJuda, uJesu wafika wema phakathi kwabo wathi kubo: ‘Uxolo alube kini’. Eseshilo lokho wabakhombisa izandla nohlangothi lwakhe. Base bethokoza abafundi beyibona iNkosi iphila. Khona uJesu wabuye wathi kubo: ‘Uxolo alube kini. Njengalokhu uBaba engithumile, nami ngiyanithuma’. Kwathi ukuba asho njalo wabaphefumulela, wathi kubo: ‘Yamukelani isipho soMoya oCwebileyo. Labo eniyakubathethelela izono zabo bayakuba bethethelelwe, nalabo eniyakubabopha ngezono zabo bayakuba beboshiwe”.

Ngempela uJesu uvukile, yiPhasika namuhla. Usuku seluphelile, ubumnyama sebubemboze, yilapho-ke uJesu ebonakala kubafundi bakhe. Uzibonakalisa kubobonke labo abangabafundi bakhe. Qaphelake ukuthi igama abafundi liphindiwe, lokho okuyisiqinisekiso sokuthi akekho oshiywe ngaphandle. Akukhoke ukuzihlanguza. Mina nawe singabafundi bakaJesu.

“Kusihlwa ngosuku lokuqala lwesonto”. Ake sikhumbule ukuthi kwenzakalani ngosuku lokuqala ngenkathi uNkulunkulu edala izulu nomhlaba. Phela ngalolo suku  kwabakhona ukukhanya, lapho uNkulunkulu ahlukanisa khona ukukhanya nobumnyama. Phela uSimakade usemshikashikeni wokwakha abantu bakhe, ukuze babe ngabantu abangcono. Namuhlake sivuselelwa kabusha. Senziwa abantu abasha.

Nakuba impilo yethu iyohlale njalo izungezwe ngukukhanya kanye nobumnyama ngesikhathi esifanayo. Phela sikhuluma ngobubi nokulunga, ukuphumelela nokwahluleka, yinjabulo nokuhlupheka. Konke lokhu uNkulunkulu uyakusebenzisa ukuze sikhule sithuthuke futhi sibe ngabantu abangcono.

“Kepha manje, Jehova unguBaba;
Thina siyibumba, wena ungumbumbi wethu,
Singumsebenzi wesandla sakho sonke”.
Is. 64:8

UJesu lapha ufika ngesikhathi esinzima impela empilweni yabafundi bakhe. “Iminyango ivaliwe”. Phela ukuvala kusho ukungavuleleki, nokungazimiseli ukuguquka. Izinto zibophene kubafundi. Bayesaba. Manje sekuphelile ngabo. AmaJuda azobadla luhlaza, kanti noJesu ufa nje kade sebemhlamukile. Ngempela bayesaba futhi nonembeza uyabalahla ngesenzo sabo kuJesu. Futhi akukho manje abasangakwenza ukuguqula isimo.

Lesibingelelo sisho futhi intethelelo. Isihawu, ubuphelele nokuthula. KuJesu sekudlulile konke. Ubukhona bakhe buletha ukuthula. Bayavuselelwa manje ukuthi, hhay madoda okudala kudlulile, khululekani. Phela lo Nkulunkulu wethu esimkhonzayo, nguNkulunkulu osikhululayo, osethula umthwalo nejoka emahlombe ethu.

Yiyo-ke le nkululeko uJesu athi kubafundi bakhe “njengoba uBaba athuma mina, kanjalo-ke nami ngiyanithuma”. Uthando lukaNkulunkulu ngasiludlulisela kubantu bonke ukuze baqonde kuthi umhlaba uthethelelwe. Phela ngoKristo ubudlelwane bethu noNkulunkulu buvuselelwe. Yingakho nje sithi lapho sixolela abanye iziphambeko zabo zithethelelwe. Kuthi ekungazimiseleni kwethu ukudlulisa sigcina abanye bebophekile ezonweni zabo.
