Luisteraarsvraag: Hoe om ouers te motiveer tot verbondsonderrig?

Die kategeet se vraag is baie belangrik en die Woord van God is duidelik daaroor dat elke gelowige ouer die Bybel vir hul kinders moet lees, christelike beginsels en lewensstyl moet modelleer en leef, sowel as verbondsonderrig moet doen in sy/haar huis as primêre kategeet en opvoeder. Dit is veronderstel om bo en behalwe kerkbywoning, formele kategese en ander woordbediening te geskied. Wat is dus ons opdrag van God?

02:02 Kategeet se vraag: Hoe kan ek ouers motiveer om die Bybel vir hul kinders te lees?

02:58 Wat is ons opdrag van God?
Basisopdrag vir kategese: Deuteronomium 6:4-7
a) Woord moet in jou hart wees
b) jy moet die Woord by jou kinders inskerp
c) en ouers moet daaroor praat in die huis, en op pad, en as jy gaan lê, en as jy opstaan

03:55 2 Timoteus 3:14-17 …..Die hele Skrif is deur God ingegee en is nuttig tot lering, tot weerlegging, tot teregwysing, tot onderwysing in die geregtigheid, sodat die mens van God volkome kan wees, vir elke goeie werk volkome toegerus.

05:53 Paulus gee vir Timoteus 2 voorskrifte vir moeilike tye:
a) die voorbeeld wat hy van ander gelowiges (sy ouers en voorouers) geleer het
b) die heilige geskrifte

08:00 Die ouer bly die primêre kategeet

09:20 Uitdagings vir die gesin:
a) Eise en die gejaag van die lewe
b) Eise van ons loopbane
c) Opofferings
d) Prioriteite

11:55 Waarvoor lewe ons, wat is ons fokus?

12:26 Wat wil ek vir my kinders gee?

13:55 Wees getrou om jou kinders in die woord van God te onderrig

15:18 Kategese gebeur ook in informele situasies
a) wys vir jou kinders dat jy self die Here lief het en volg
b) die seën wat ons ontvang as ons ons kinders in die verbond onderrig
c) soek die Here in alles wat jy doen

17:15 Wat is die beste vir my kind?

18:52 Wat is die gesindheid van jou hart?

20:30 Lewensstyl en prioriteite – glo jy self regtig in die Here?

22:03 Hoe kan ek ouers motiveer om kategese belangrik te ag?
a) besef dat jy jou kind leer om ‘n navolger van iets te word
b) kweek die navolgingskap van Christus

    Hier is my praatjie in Engels:
    Godly devotions
    Good evening brothers and sisters in Christ
    I want to speak to you about Godly devotions:
    1. Personal Godly devotions.
    2. Godly devotions as a couple.
    3. Godly devotions as a family.

    1. Personal Godly devotions

    Godly devotions should always be founded on a personal loving relationship between God and yourself. Prayer should be the breathing of our souls. We proceed from God’s personal relationship with ourselves to our personal relationship with fellow believers and the members of our family. Sometimes a part of Scripture should so captivate us that we will read chapter after chapter as we read a book or watch a movie. Sometimes we will begin a personal Bible study about some new insight inspired by a sermon, a Godly talk, or a Godly book.

    2. Godly devotions as a married couple

    a. Reading God’s Word together as husband and wife

    As we read the Bible together as a couple, we set the Holy Spirit in motion in our hearts and minds, and this is of supreme importance for the health of our marriage.
    When you and your partner share a part of Scripture, ask yourselves what this particular Scripture has to do with what God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit does. Then ask how how it may reveal any sin in your lives. Then apply these answers to your marriage.

    • If you have to correct your marriage partner, do it in a loving and humble way, rather than using God’s Word as a weapon of attack.

    b. Praying together as husband and wife
    After you have discussed, shared and applied God’s Word to your marriage, it is time for prayer.
    Sometimes the husband may lead, sometimes his wife. Enter into God’s holy presence with his Word and Spirit – and with your marriage, and the needs of people, saved or unsaved, near or far, in your minds. Ask Him to grant you the wisdom so that you might be able to apply and practice his love to each other and to all around you. Ask God for the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

    • Do not use prayer as a platform of attacks against your partner. Your wife or your husband should be able to say ‘Amen!’ to your prayer.

    • Prayers can be supplications – things that you ask from God. Or they can be thanksgivings, as you thank God for your marriage and other blessings. They can be intercessions – as you intercede with God in Jesus’ Name for your marriage, or for your child of children, or for others.

    3. Godly devotions as a family

    Family devotions should be a holy time, but also a fun time!

    • It should be holy, since we enter into God’s presence as a family. Consider therefore to completely switch off all cell phones, TV’s, radios or other social media devices! You might find that gathering round a table (or with chairs set in a circle) might be meaningful. Manage interruptions wisely.

    • But family devotions should also be a fun time. The children should be able to look back with pleasure at the times of laughter, joy, gentle discipline, Biblical instruction, comfort, growing and sharing as a family.

    • Give the children a voice. Allow them to speak their own minds. Give them a safe, loving, forgiving place to open up their hearts. Teach them to speak God’s Word, and to pray in public. Teach them to be sensitive and considerate towards the needs of the other family members.

    Think how much it will mean for them later on when they are able to put what they believe into the spoken word!

    • Like with your devotions as husband and wife, begin your family devotions with God’s Word, and proceed from there in prayer, where each family member should be welcome to join.

    • Singing together can also be a great blessing for the family! There are thousands of Psalms, hymns and Christian songs with which to praise and worship God, to declare your shared love for Him, to instruct and comfort the family members, or to confess your sins and ask for forgiveness.

    Hoe om ouers te motiveer tot verbondsonderrig:
    1. Waak teen oppervlakkige, metodistiese ‘how to’ tegnieke, en konsentreer op bekering van die hart soos veroorsaak (gewerk) deur die Woord en Gees van God.
    2. Onderrig ouers in die waarde van huisgodsdiens as gesin. Ek het onlangs ‘n praatjie in Engels uitgewerk oor Godly Devotions: a) Personal Godly devotions b) Godly devotions as man and wife c) Godly devotions as family. Ek is bereid om die praatjie in Afrikaans te vertaal. Dis beskikbaar by neelsmalan@gmail.com.
