God As Father

Jackie Barker and Theo Groeneveld talk about Romans 8:15-17
The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship.[a] And by him we cry, “Abba,[b] Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.


Matthew 11: 28-30
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Braam Klopper, Theo Groeneveld and Jackie Barker

Die Gebroke Werklikheid

ROMEINE 8:18-25
Ek is daarvan oortuig dat die lyding wat ons nou moet verduur, nie opweeg teen die heerlikheid wat God vir ons in die toekoms sal laat aanbreek nie. Die skepping sien met gespanne verwagting daarna uit dat God bekend sal maak wie sy kinders is. Die skepping is immers nog aan verydeling onderworpe, nie uit eie keuse nie, maar omdat God dit daaraan onderwerp het. Daarby het Hy die belofte van hoop gegee: die skepping sal self ook bevry word van sy verslawing aan die verganklikheid, om so tot die vryheid te kom van die heerlikheid waaraan die kinders van God deel sal hê. Ons weet dat die hele skepping tot nou toe sug in die pyne van verwagting. En nie net die skepping nie, maar ook ons wat die Gees ontvang het as die eerste gawe van God, ons sug ook. Ons sien daarna uit dat God sal bekend maak dat Hy ons as sy kinders aangeneem het: Hy sal ons van die verganklikheid bevry. Ons is immers gered, en ons het nou hierdie hoop. Wat 'n mens al sien, hoop jy tog nie meer nie. Wie hoop nog op wat hy reeds sien? Maar as ons hoop op wat ons nie sien nie, wag ons daarop met volharding.

Lei God ons in versoeking?

Matt 6:9-13
“So moet julle bid: “Ons Vader wat in die hemel is, laat u Naam geheilig word; laat u koninkryk kom; laat u wil ook op die aarde geskied, net soos in die hemel. Gee ons vandag ons daaglikse brood; en vergeef ons ons oortredings soos ons ook dié vergewe wat teen ons oortree; en laat ons nie in versoeking kom nie maar verlos ons van die Bose.

God cares about suffering

Exodus 3:1-14

Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. 2 There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. 3 So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.”

4 When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!”

And Moses said, “Here I am.”

5 “Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.” 6 Then he said, “I am the God of your father,[a] the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God.

7 The Lord said, “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering. 8 So I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey—the home of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. 9 And now the cry of the Israelites has reached me, and I have seen the way the Egyptians are oppressing them. 10 So now, go. I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt.”

11 But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?”

12 And God said, “I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you[b] will worship God on this mountain.”

13 Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?”

14 God said to Moses, “I am who I am.[c] This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.’”

Nuances of Faith

Hebrews 11:
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended for.

3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

4 By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead.

5 By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: “He could not be found, because God had taken him away.”[a] For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

7 By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith.

8 By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. 9 By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. 10 For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. 11 And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she[b] considered him faithful who had made the promise. 12 And so from this one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore.
