Te Pipiwharauroa, he kupu whakamarama. NAMA 56. GISBORNE. OKETOPA 1902. 'KIA MAHARA KI A IHU KARAITI.'

«2 Timoti ii. 8.' (Kote kauwhau tuatahi a te Rev. F. W. Chat- terton i te reo Maori, i kauwhautia ki Te Arai Turanga, Hune 6,1902.)

ME whakamatau ahau ki te kauwhau ki a koutou i te reo e mohiotia nei e kou- tou no te mea kua mahue i ahau he whakami- nenga nui he pakeha i Whakatu, ki te haere ki nga tangata Maori. He kupu torutoru, kaore he take nui atu hei korerotanga i te Rongo Paia Ihu Karaiti. E mea ana tatou he Karaitiana tatou. Ka hui- hui tatou ki te whare karakia he tohu tenei he Karaitiana tatou ; e gari e wareware tonu ana tatou ki a Ihu. Na te aha i hinga ai a Pita i te marae o te tino tohanga ? Na te aha i wha- kakahore ai ia i a Ihu ? I wareware ia ki to- na hoa ki a Ihu. Waihoki inaianei na te aha tetahi tangata i tahae ai ? Na te aha tetahi tangata i haurangi ai ? Na te aha tetahi ta- ngata i puremu ai ? Na te aha tetahi tanga- ta i korero teka ai ? No te mea e wareware ana ratou ki a Ihu, mehemea i mahara ratou ki a Ihu e kore e hinga. E marama ana te kupu a te Atua kia maha- ra ki te take o tona haerenga mai ki tenei ao. 1. I tae mai ia hei kai-whakaora mo te hu- nga hara. 2. Hei hoa mo te tangata e hiahia ana ki te aru i a Ia. 3. Hei tauira mo te hunga e hiahia ana ki te aru i a Ia. 4. Hei kai-whakaako mo te hunga e hiahia ana ki te haereere i roto i te maramatanga. Na, whakarongo ki te kupu a te Atua kia mahara ki a Ihu Karaiti. No te mea e matea ana e tatou he kai whakaora, hei whakaora i a tatou i te nui o te hara. E kore tatou e ahei te whakama i te ngakau, otira i haere mai a Ihu ki te whakaora i a tatou, i mate ia ki te ripeka mo o tatou hara, koia kia mahara ki a ia, kia whakapono i roto i o tatou ngakau. E matea ana e tatou he hoa mo tatou. He maha pea o tatou hoa i tenei ao, engari kua mate tetahi, kua riro tetahi he wahi ke, e kore pea tetahi e ahei ki te awhina i a tatou. Oti- ia ko Ihu hei hoa mo nga ra katoa, hei hoa e kore rawa e ngaro, he hoa kaha, e ahei ana te awhina. Koia kia mahara tatou ki a Ihu Ka- raiti, a me whakawhirinaki ki a Ia. E matea ana e tatou he tauira mo tatou Ka titiro tatou ki tenei tangata, ki tenei tanga- ta engari kei nga tangata katoa te he. Kaho- re tetahi tangata i tino rite hei kai arahi i a ta- tou, otiia kua tae mai a Ihu, kahore te hara i roto i a ia. Me titiro tatou ki a Ia, a e kite tatou i te mea e tino tika ana hei tauira. Ko- ia kia mahara ki a Ihu Karaiti; e aru i a Ia. E matea ana e tatou he kai whakaako, he rangatira nui hei whakahau hei tohutohu i a tatou. E puta mai ana te hiahia ki tenei mea ki tera mea, ka potatutatu tatou, otira whaka- rongo ki a Ihu. Ae ra kua tae mai a Ihu hei kai whakaora i a tatou, hei hoa, hei tauira, hei kai whakaako. Whakapono ki a Ia, whakawhirinaki ki a Ia, e aru i a Ia, whakarongo ki a Ia, ara kia ma- hara ki a Ia i nga wa katoa. Kia mahara ki a ia i te haora o te whakamatautauranga, kia mahara ki a Ia i te haora o te mamae, kia ma- hara ki a Ia i te haora o te pouri, kia mahara ki a Ia i te haora o te ngoikore, kia mahara ki a Ia i te haora o te mate.
