Your Family: Root, Stem & Branches
God designed families to be places where each of the members honor and respect, encourage and support one another. Built on a foundation of Christ’s love and forgiveness, each person’s personality and confidence should develop and grow in such a way that they can cultivate and sustain satisfying, meaningful, long-term relationships.
However, every family has patterns, tendencies, beliefs and attitudes that influence each member for better or worse. Some of these patterns are inappropriate or even harmful. We can fall into dysfunctional ruts and get stuck there.
Fortunately, in today’s worship service we will discover that our past doesn’t have to dictate or sabotage our future. The power of Christ inside us can break down any destructive or negative barrier. We can apply this truth from God’s Word to our life right now (2 Peter 1:3) – “His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life.”
