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.
Composed by Pepper Choplin
Pepper Choplin is widely acclaimed for his unique “a cappella” scripture settings, filled with a rhythmic, energetic spiritual quality. “Upon This Rock” is a compelling interpretation of Matthew 16:13–20, a celebration of church unity and the church’s challenge to be in the 21st century. African-flavored syncopation, call and response between choir and solos, and optional percussion add to the fun for singer and listener alike.
