"God Our Mother?" - Karlyna Gelderman

Sunday, May 12, 2024 - Bethel Pentecostal Church - Barrhead, Alberta


Isaiah 66:12-14 

For this is what the Lord says: 

“I will extend peace to her like a river,

   and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream;
you will nurse and be carried on her arm
    and dandled on her knees.
13 As a mother comforts her child,
    so will I comfort you;
    and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.”

14 When you see this, your heart will rejoice
    and you will flourish like grass;
the hand of the Lord will be made known to his servants,
    but his fury will be shown to his foes."

  • God is our Father - this is true...but are we putting God in a box by only describing Him this way?  The bible also describes Him with many characteristics of a Mother:
  • Even if there is no one else around who seems to care, God does - He wants to comfort you as tenderly as a Mother.

"You've been my Savior, Sustainer when I'm at my endMy Healer, Redeemer, again and againMy Mother and my Father, Brother, Sister, and FriendEverything I've needed Lord, You've always beenEverything I've needed Lord, You've always been"
