around a helpless babe.
They proclaim: The King was born!
The King conquers!
The King is coming! The King is coming indeed!"

Devotional thoughts for most days, for those who depend on the grace and mercy of God in Jesus Christ. These thoughts are Bible based and inspired by my Reformed tradition.

Jesus Christ, King and Head of the church gave us his Great Commission and we can read it in Matthew 28: 18 – 20.

God’s grace speaks of the truth that we receive the mercy and love of God even though we can never “deserve” it through anything we do by our own initiative, but share in its holy work in us only through faith, a gift of the Holy Spirit.
This is the very heartbeat of our Christian heritage.

God will bless you in ways you cannot imagine, when you put God’s priorities for you and your life first – and you experience his promise to add everything you need, unto you.

During heritage month, this is a truth which we profess - our Christian / Presbyterian / Reformed heritage - but which we may easily fail to practice: The message of the gospel is the means by which God’s gracious power is implemented to save us; to save the lost.

Why should we obey God and live according to his commandments? Why should we clothe ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience? (Col 3:12) Why should we bear with each other and forgive each other and put on love as part of our festive clothes to his glory?(Col 3:13-14)

We humble ourselves and pray for the beloved country, South Africa, and all who live here and know this is their home and the future of their children.   Have mercy on us, we pray.

As we hear so much about emotional and physical abuse of women and children in our country – often by their fathers and intimate partners - and we see the flood of disrespect for them around us and often participate in prolonging the scandal of inequality between men and women, we have to now, during women’s week and month to also approach this painful and dangerous situation on a spiritual and Biblical level.

We are not to sit back and become spectators of God’s interventions and plans.As the Lord plants the “seed” of the “new thing” he is doing in our lives, we will be full partners of God in taking care of the seed he planted in our lives and in faith expects the seed to sprout.

Creation groans to be delivered,
and we, Christians, groan too as a result of living in this imperfect world with its disappointments, sadness, pains, sickness and death.
But then we also hear that the Holy Spirit groans for our sake, in compassion with us, before God. 
By Andries on Sunday, July 05, 2020 3:19:54 AM
As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?
Psalms 42:1-2.
