Rescued from the Generational Curse
You were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, with the precious blood of Christ. 1 Peter 1:18-19
All week we've been looking at how the Bible teaches that a lot of the garbage in our lives is there because it has been passed down to us from our families. It also teaches that it's still our responsibility to deal with it.
Today's verse shows why people say that Jesus brought good news. When we feel stuck in the bad habits, hang ups, and hurts of our past, there is a way out. That's why he's called The Way after all! (see John 14:6)
Go to Jesus, the one who is The Way Out of feeling trapped, the one who is The Way Towards healing, the one who is The Way Back to your heavenly Father's open arms. Invite Jesus into those areas of your life where you cannot seem to break away from the sin passed down to you. He promises that he will rescue you!
