Put The Fun In Dysfunctional. 11.18.16. Not This Year Series.
In Luke Jesus speaks of Himself describing why he came using Isaiah’s description of Him,
“But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship. Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” Galatians 4:4-6
The Greek word for adoption to sonship is a legal term referring to the full legal standing of an adopted male heir in Roman culture. You are not just part of the family, you are an heir to God’s throne.
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” Luke 4:18-19
Jesus Came So That Our Dysfunction Could Be Turned Into Joy!
