A Love for the Family

The family has been called the “building block of society.” That is built into our human DNA, and for the people of God, it is a part of our spiritual DNA. By God’s design, the family is to be a place where God’s love is expressed, as well as a place from which His love flows into all the world. Yet, in our world today, how ought we define a “family”? What are the implications of Jesus becoming a part of a human family? What does it look like for a church to invest in families? Lord Jesus, You came to be a part of an earthly family here so You could give and receive love. Look upon our families with Your favor and strengthen our church in our commitment to families of all descriptions.

Scripture References: Joshua 24:14-18, Luke 15:11-24

From Series: "DNA"

In science, DNA is the basic code in all living things. The code in our DNA defines our physical characteristics and identifies us based on our lineage. Thinking about our Spiritual life in Christ in terms of DNA (metaphorically) can give us ways of talking about our identity as His people and how that identity in Christ manifests itself as we live out our faith. The identifying marker of the children of God is living in selfless love: “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” (John 13:35)
