Restore the Home:
Reflect God’s Image
Put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him.
Today, Pastor Brian taught on God’s original design for the home, namely, to reflect and spread His image and glory. Since the Fall in Genesis 3 God has been working to restore His image in the home. Through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we in fact are being renewed into the image of the One who created us.
1. There is no place like home
• What was the home like that you grew up in?
• What is the current state of your home?
2. When the home is broken, the image is broken
• How does a broken home compare to the God’s original design and the restoration offered in Jesus Christ? Remember, God sees past the mess to the hope of His original design.
3. When the image is restored, the home is restored
• How can you continue to walk toward the renewal and restoration of your home together?
Thank God for the opportunity to evaluate your home life through the lens of hope and restoration to God’s original design. Ask God to restore what was broken at the Fall and what is hindering your renewal as a home. Commit to having weekly Faith Talks as a first step toward walking in restoration.
