Jan. 5th - Feb. 16th Sermon Series
Broken Together • February 16, 2020 • Eric Laverentz
For more than two generations the Church has thrown unprecedented resources at reaching the next generation: time, energy, lives and billions of millions of dollars. And we’re failing to reach the next generation for Jesus. Why? Join us as Pastor Eric concludes our sermon series Broken Together and hear him give hope to the question above.
Together, East of Eden
There is a reason the Bible is filled with stories of betrayal, adultery, violence, disappointment, heartache, defeat, persecution, racism and unbelievable pain. We all, just like Adam and Eve, live East of Eden. Jesus is Lord over the land east of Eden just like He is Lord over the Garden of Eden. He is Lord over light and darkness. He is Lord over death and life, joy and pain, good and evil.
Crushing The Curse
When humanity sinned, it changed the earth. Adam and Eve were married by God Himself and were naked and unashamed of who they were. There was literally nothing between them as husband and wife and nothing between them as individuals and God. Adam and Eve broke God’s law and drug the world into sin with them. Theologians refer to this event as the Fall. After the Fall the earth was cursed by sin.

Marriage is a covenant between God and a man and woman to be one…in everything and at all times. It means one flesh physically in a very literal sense just as it means one flesh in how a woman and man build their life together. Just as Jesus unites to God because He shares our human flesh. In marriage Jesus unites us to each other as we become one flesh.
