Wat beteken die kruis vir my en jou?


Wat beteken die kruis vir my en jou...
 
·         Genade?
·         Liefde?
·         Vergifnis?
 
Ons weet almal min of meer/het al baie vrae geantwoord en verstaan in hul hart dat dit al die bg. kan wees en nog meer – vir elke mens is dit anders
 
Maar wat verwag die Here van ons, nou, vandag? Wat moet die kruis daagliks vir ons beteken?
 
Dink hieraan....ons leefwyse...
 
·       Ons manier van praat:
Skinder, vloek, negatief, murmureer, kritiseer
·        Handel en wandel:
Eerlik wees met claims, tydstate, getrou aan jou huweliksmaat, deernis, oggend en aandpraatjies moet dieselfde wees
·       Ons gesindheid:
Samaritaan, vrygewig,
·        Ons harts-toestand:
moenie onheil broei nie
moenie wraaksugtig wees nie

Ascension day / Hemelvaart-dag

 
Die graf is leeg vir jou en my..
dit beteken ons het oorwinning oor al ons issues en probleme op aarde
ons is vrygekoop van die sonde-las waaronder ons gepaard gaan

Ons het toegang tot die Vader en kan in verhouding met die 3-enige God wees
Die keuse is joune...

Begin with ME Father

Abba Father, please help me to be the woman I need to be... the kind of woman that pleases You...
 
1 Peter 3:1-6
This scripture reveals how a changed woman can be a powerful instrument for change in her husband’s life.
The real adventure isn’t what God wants to do in your husband’s life; the jolts will come when you realize what He’s doing in your life!

The changed woman is submissive to her husband. “Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husband.” 1 Peter 3:1 The Greek word for submissive, hupotassõ, means to be subject or subordinate, to literally place under.

The best illustration of submission comes from traffic. When you see the “merge” sign, you know that someone has to go first and someone has to go behind. Too often the I’m-going-to-go first battle causes frustration. Everyone knows that soon or later there is only going to be room for a single file of cars.

Submission has nothing to do with equality. The Son is not pouting around heaven going, “Why can’t I be the Father?” The Son is in submission to the Father and the Spirit to the Father and the Son. Yet Scripture teaches they are equal. Headship has nothing to do with equality. Men and women are equal under God in every way.

Submission also has nothing to do with worth. I love Proverbs 31:10, “Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies.” It’s not about gifts. In certain areas, my wife has gifts that far exceed mine. It’s about God’s design for the order in the home. Changed women help God change husbands by being submissive to their own husband.

The changed woman is chaste in her conduct. Your husband is going to be “impacted when he observes your chaste conduct accompanied by fear” v. 2. This describes the effect of what you do in the kitchen, the car, the backyard, and in the bedroom—every activity in every place. Chaste means holy, righteous, or pure. Chaste means having godly responses to conflict, being pure in your dress, your language, your choices of entertainment and being righteous in decisions. Chaste does not mean self-righteous or judgmental; not uppity or prudish—just pure. A wife’s purity is a powerful tool God uses for change in the life of her husband.

The changed woman has a gentle and quiet spirit (see 1 Peter 3:4). Her attitude is gentle—that is, she’s considerate, unassuming, not pushy or demanding, not unnecessarily rigorous. The opposite of gentle spirit would be combative. She’s quiet—not loud-mouthed or known for speaking her mind. She’s not overpowering or blunt in her words or actions. She is soft-spoken and calm. She bears the disturbances created by others and does not cause or contribute to disturbances. She trusts God with her home and entrusts her husband to God. We all know from experience and from observation, that there is a woman who stirs the pot and there is a woman who stills the storm. A wife’s gentle and quiet spirit focuses God’s work on her husband.

A wife might insist, “Well, God didn’t make me like that.” Then like her husband, she needs to be changed. God is not trying to give her a different personality. He loves the one that He gave her, but He wants godliness to be expressed through it. As for her husband, no matter how clearly she sees how she can “fix” him, God has a better plan. A godly woman uses each impulse to “improve” her husband as a reminder to pray, “Lord, change me into the person You want me to be.” Next week, we’ll look at the other potential best-seller: How a Husband Can Change His Wife!

Don't speak - don't move

1 Kings 18v42..
So Ahab went off to eat and drink, but Elijah climbed to the top of Carmel, bent down to the ground and put his face between his knees.

43 “Go and look toward the sea,”

·  Elia het hom neergebuig en gebid
·  Hy het reeds verklaar: “There is the sound of abundance of rain – (daar was NIKS tekens v reen nie. Hy het dit in geloof verklaar en in die gees ‘gehoor’) in v41
·  Jou werk is om NET te fokus op God se werking in die geestelike – moenie loer of die reen (of antwoord op jou gebed) al sigbaar is nie.
·  Bly neergebuig en BID en vertrou
·  WANT jy wandel in lyn met God se wil en God se Woord
·  Moenie in die vlees interfere nie – Hy IS besig
·  V46: The hand of the Lord was on Elijah

 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Voor ons praat of doen VRA EERS: 

Am I [H A L T]
·   Hungry
·   Angry
·   Lonely
·   Tired

If YES to any of the above – DON’t SPEAK DON’T MOVE – jy gaan die verkeerde ding sê.

Buig jou neer. En wees STIL. Laat jou vlees eers genoeg rus. Vul jou gees met Woord – sodat elke daad ‘n gevolg is van ‘n vol gees – en nie ‘n moeg liggaam nie.

Toe Vergifnis aan die kruis gesterf het….

Ons as christene het ‘n gesindheid begin inneem om dit wat vergeefbaar is, onvergeefbaar te maak. Jesus het soveel deurgemaak in Sy journey op aarde en toe Hy die dag aan die kruis sterf was dit met ‘n doel. Sy kruisdood het vir ons vergifnis gebring vir ons sondes, ons verkeerd; (ons verslawings, ons verkeerde gesindhede, ons losbandigheid, ons negatiwiteit, skinder, leuentaal, ongehoorsaamheid …)

Hoekom dan terwyl ons weet wat die Here ons al voor vergewe het, is dit so moeilik om ander om ons te vergewe. Hoekom is dit so maklik om eerder te oordeel en te kritiseer. Dit terwyl ons eerstehands vergifnis geproe en ervaar het en sooo oneindig dankbaar was toe ons besef het daar is vir ons foute genade!

Wat het van ons geword? Wat het van ons christene geword?
Ons is veronderstel om ‘n veilige hawe te wees en al wat ons doen ons sit mense terug in tronke terwyl daar vryheid vir hul aangekondig is!

Why have we, as Christians made the forgivable unforgivable?

When u r at the end of your rope

MATH 5.3-16
 
You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule.
“You’re blessed when you feel you’ve lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you.
“You’re blessed when you’re content with just who you are—no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought.
“You’re blessed when you’ve worked up a good appetite for God. He’s food and drink in the best meal you’ll ever eat.
“You’re blessed when you care. At the moment of being ‘care-full,’ you find yourselves cared for.
“You’re blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.
“You’re blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That’s when you discover who you really are, and your place in God’s family.
“You’re blessed when your commitment to God provokes persecution. The persecution drives you even deeper into God’s kingdom.
“Not only that—count yourselves blessed every time people put you down or throw you out or speak lies about you to discredit me. What it means is that the truth is too close for comfort and they are uncomfortable. You can be glad when that happens—give a cheer, even!—for though they don’t like it, I do! And all heaven applauds. And know that you are in good company. My prophets and witnesses have always gotten into this kind of trouble.
“Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage.
 
“Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.

Prostitution...

You have forgotten Me and turned your back on Me, so You will be punished for your sinning and prostitution...



In Ezekiel 23, the prophet condemns the immorality of both Samaria of Northern Israel (23:4,5-10) and Jerusalem of Judah (23:4,11-21). In summarizing the history of these Israelite cities, God likens them to two sisters who became harlots at a young age (23:3,19) and continued their practice to an old age (23:43). Instead of being faithful to God, they constantly turned their affections to nations like Egypt (23:3) and embraced all of their idols and false worship.

The people of Samaria also became infatuated with the might and religion of Assyria (23:5-7), and incorporated its immorality into their lives. Meanwhile they never gave up their lust for Egypt (23:8).

God would punish Samaria by delivering her "into the hands of the Assyrians, for whom she lusted" (23:9-10). In other words, God allowed this foreign nation, with whom she was fascinated, to execute judgment upon her for her sin.

At the time Ezekiel spoke these words, the nation of Samaria had already been punished for its sin and destroyed by the Assyrians. The prophet speaks of this as an example lesson to the Israelites in Jerusalem. He then declared that Jerusalem herself had become defiled by a lust for the sin of Egypt (23:19-21), Assyria (23:12) and Babylon (23:14-18). She not only followed in "the same way" of unfaithfulness as her sister Samaria (23:13), she became more corrupt (23:11). Thus God would likewise punish her (23:22-35). As God sent the Assyrians to destroy Samaria in 721 B.C., He sent the Babylonians to level Jerusalem in 586 B.C.

The great lesson of Ezekiel 23 is that we must learn from the mistakes of others. The Israelites in Judah and Jerusalem should have learned from the errors of their brethren in Samaria. Sin and idolatry brought the wrath of God upon Samaria to its extinction as a nation. Why didn't the people of Jerusalem reason that if they did the same things, that they would receive the same punishment? Failure to do so cost them their city, their temple, their lives and their souls.

The Bible abounds in examples of ungodly people being punished -- even those who were once faithful to Him. Let's take warning from these passages and not become infatuated with the sin of this world. Instead, let's serve the God of Heaven with diligence

Working with Difficult People

God used a raven, a bird considered 'unclean' in Jewish culture, to feed the prophet Elijah during a famine.
Nehemiah rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem with funds provided by a heathen king.

The point is: Don't limit God. Sometimes the people we'd normally shun are the very ones He uses to provide what we need, and by shutting them out we forfeit a blessing He has in mind for us.

Be careful; your tendency to be 'picky' can end up hurting you! The truth is, you can't avoid working with difficult people. God planned it that way.

Why? Because He wants you to grow in the midst of negativity without getting sucked into it.

David developed the ability to work with people who were hard to get along with. It doesn't get much harder than working for a boss with an evil spirit! At first David enjoyed King Saul's favor, but after he killed Goliath, Saul sought to kill him. Yet David never changed his strategy. He stayed in Saul's house because he knew his destiny was there. And because of the wisdom he exhibited, he ended up owning the place! God's principles are timeless. David didn't limit himself, and he didn't limit God. He understood that people fall into two categories: 'Vessels of honor and vessels of dishonor.' And God uses both. Getting his eyes off people, and being neither impressed nor depressed by them, afforded David great opportunities because he freed others up to be used by God.

So learn to get along with difficult people; your greatest challenge today may be the person who assists and blesses you tomorrow.
