The Story of the Family
God's heart beats for the family.
In fact, the family is the very first institution God created (Gen. 2). While the family was created to love and serve God (and each other) fully, we know from experience that something happened that has crippled each family member.
Sin Breaks the Family.
Sin makes parents say things that scar their children. Sin causes children to rebel and inflict harm on themselves. Everything bad that happens in the home is the result of sin infecting the heart of each and every individual.
Christ redeems the family.
As you come to trust in Christ, every aspect of your life comes under His Lordship. This includes your parenting. Christ's way is better than sin's way. As you trust Christ with your parenting, you will find that He is able to overcome the effects of sin in your home and bless you, your spouse, and your children.
