All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.
Sylvia Dunstan’s text is a study in the dichotomies of Jesus, his life, and ministry. She then names him as the “everlasting instant” and points out the dichotomy of our own relationship to Jesus. Davidson’s gentle melody and dreamy harmonies sets just the right contemplative mood for such a text that highlights the readings for Easter 4 or for The Reign of Christ.
