The Redemptive Family

Young Yi

Ephesians 4:15-16

We are all recovering kids looking for healing that is found in Christ Jesus. What wounds from your childhood are you carrying through life? Pastor Young Yi encourages us that there is healing for us all in Jesus, no matter how deep the wounds go. As a recovering family, the church provides us with an incredible opportunity for the redemptive embracing of one another as we point to Jesus.

That light shines in the darkness, and yet the darkness did not overcome it.

John 1:5
 

  • Why do we call Church, “our family?”
  • Our family of origin stories; the healthy, the unhealthy, and the Gospel.
  • The Church is to be the redemptive family; stumbling together toward
    Jesus.
  •  

    But to all who did receive him, he gave them the right to be children of God, to those who believe in his name, who were born, not of natural descent, or of the will of the flesh, or of the will of man, but of God.

    John 1:12-13
     

    We are invited into a family that is beyond our physical families; we are invited into a spiritual family.

     

    Our family of origin stories; the healthy, the unhealthy, and the Gospel.

     

    “‘Son,’ he said to him, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. But we had to celebrate and rejoice, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’”

    Luke 15:31-32
     

    The Church is to be the redemptive family; stumbling together toward Jesus.

     

    But speaking the truth in love, let us grow in every way into him who is the head  — Christ. From him the whole body, fitted and knit together by every supporting ligament, promotes the growth of the body for building itself up in love by the proper working of each individual part.

    Ephesians 4:15-16
     

    We are all recovering kids, looking for healing that is found in Christ Jesus.
