Bybelse waarhede in die Pinkstertyd…

Liewe vriende, hierdie week kry ek net nie kans om behoorlik hier op my eie blog te kom kuier nie. Dit is Pinkstertyd, en soos sommiges weet, is dit nogal ‘n baie rowwe tyd vir Dominees. ‘n Baie geseënde tyd, ‘n tyd van stilwees in die studeerkamer, ‘n tyd van geestelike groei met so baie dienste in een week. Vir my ‘n baie mooi tyd. Maar besig. Baie, baie besig.

Wat dit verder rof maak, is die dood van my kollega se moeder. Sy was in ons gemeente, en ek en hy het haar saam besoek in Unitas hospitaal nadat ons kreatief verouder het twee weke gelede, kort voor sy ‘n rugoperassie moes ondergaan. Sy was so ‘n blymoedige mens, wat met volle vertroue die operasie aangepak het. Sy het baie mooi herstel na die operasie, en toe skielik verlede week longontsteking in die hospitaal ontwikkel, stadig agteruitgegaan tot sy Vrydagaand so 22h00 saggies heengegaan het. Sy was ‘n baie mooi mens, wat ook vir my baie beteken het hier in ons gemeente, met haar geloof en haar menswees. Moreoggend gaan kollega vir haar ‘n troosdiens lei in ons gemeente, en Vrydag word sy begrawe langs haar eerste man in Randfontein.  Daar was ook ander vreemde sterfgevalle binne ‘n week- die kantoorbestuurder by Toyota, wat my so mooi gehelp het vroeër hierdie jaar met my Corolla kopery, is skielik in ‘n motorongeluk dood- band het gebars, en sy is in ‘n boom in. Nog ‘n jong ma, net 37, is skielik aan ‘n hartaanval oorlede. En nog ‘n jong vrou, onderwyseres by die laerskool, het gelukkig ‘n hartaanval oorleef. Dis vreemde tye hier in ons dorp, en elke dag kry ons net weer die boodskap dat die lewe kort en onvoorspelbaar is, ons moet elke dag voluit lewe en die meeste daarvan maak.  Moenie ‘n kans laat verbygaan om iemand anders se lewe beter te maak nie!

Met al hierdie dinge in gedagte is my eie emosionele toestand maar redelik op en af. En ek moet vanaand om 18h00 voor die gemeente staan en sê: So spreek die Here!  Vanaand se tema in ons Pinksterreeks gaan daaroor om God se genade persoonlik te ken, soos in Efesiërs 2:1-10 en 1 Johannes 4: 7-10 vir ons opgeteken staan. En daar moet nou nog baie ingesit word om vanaand sinvol te kan praat.

So- ek het baie aan die gang, maar min op die hart. Daarom gaan ek maar vir julle leesgenot (soos die dame wat die Sinode se weeklikse nuusbrief skryf, dit noem) vir julle so ‘n paar Bybelse waarhede deel, soos opgeteken in die Rooms Katolieke kerk deur ‘n non, en aangestuur deur my vriend die Landdros…
