LIVRE BA HODI HALO TUIR ITA NIA DESTINU

‘Nia haruka hau atu haklaken liberdade ba ema dadur sira.’ Lukas 4: 18

Michelangelo David nia estátua iha galeria ida iha Florence, Itália. Ohin loron, turista rihun ba rihun hein ba oras barak atu haree. Maibé sira barak la hatene kona-ba buat ne’ebé akontese ba David. Sira-nia forma identifikador – isin-lolon parte ida husi torso iha ne’ebá. Ema hakarak estátua sira-ne’e atu hafurak Rate Papa Julio ll. Maibé sira nunka remata ida ne’e. Tuir loloos, buat sira-ne’e hanesan lasu sira-ne’e koko atu halakon sira-nia liberdade no sai buat ne’ebé sira hakarak, maibé sira metin iha fatuk. Michelangelo bolu sira “dadur.”

Uluk imi sente ona hanesan ema dadur Ita la bele hasees an husi sala ne’ebé dada ita ba kotuk. Imi hatene se mak imi hakarak atu tuir buat ne’ebé imi hakarak atu halo no iha ne’ebé imi hakarak atu ba, maibé imi parese la bele hetan. Maski ita moris kleur ona, maibé Maromak hakarak atu halo hotu buat ne’ebé nia hahú ona iha ita-nia moris.

Jesus hatete katak ninia knaar mak atu hasai ita husi dadur (hare Lucas 4: 18). Hanoin to’ok kona-ba liafuan sira-ne’e iha dalan ne’ebé lori salvasaun mak ita-nia esperansa atu ba lalehan. Maibé iha buat barak tan. Karik ita hanoin kona-ba liafuan sira-ne’e iha artístika. Jesus mós mate atu fó moris-hias ba ema ne’ebé mate ona molok pekadu muda Maromak nia ilas iha ita. Ita sai dadur ba ita-nia sala no ita-nia susar sira. Jesus mate atu halo ita livre husi leten. No nia la halo ita livre de’it husi se mak uluk ita, nia fo livre ita atu ita sai lolos se mak ita.

Set free to fulfil your destiny

‘He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives.’ Luke 4:18 NKJV

Michelangelo’s statue masterpiece David is in a gallery in Florence, Italy. Thousands of tourists wait for hours every day to get a glimpse. But many of them fail to notice the series of unfinished sculptures that line the corridor on the way to David. Their forms are identifiable—a body part here, a torso there. The statues were intended to adorn the tomb of Pope Julius ll, but they were never finished. It’s almost as if these sculptures are trying to break free and become what they were intended to be, but they are stuck in stone. Michelangelo called them ‘captives’.

Have you ever felt like a captive? You can’t seem to break free from habitual sins that have held you back. You know who you want to be, what you want to do, and where you want to go, but you can’t seem to get there. Regardless of how long you’ve been stuck, God wants to finish what He started in your life.

Jesus said His mission was to set captives free (see Luke 4:18). We tend to think of that statement in judicial terms; salvation is our free ticket to heaven. But it’s much more. Maybe we should think of that statement in artistic terms. Jesus also died to resurrect the person we were destined to be before sin distorted the image of God in us. We are held captive by our imperfections and insecurities; by our guilt and anxieties. Jesus died to set us free from all the above. And He doesn’t just set us free from who we were, He sets us free to become who we were meant to be.
