Generational Sins

Series: 1 - 2 Samuel

October 27, 2019
Pastor Joshua Lim

While the punishment for David's sins was covered by God's mercy, the consequences of David's sins remain. And we see that when sins are not dealt with by the older generation, those same sins are repeated in the younger generation. In these 6 chapters, we see the sad unraveling of David's family, as they engage in the same sins of David: lust, deception, and murder. Generational sins impact every family and require both generations to address them. Thankfully, in Christ, we have one who redeems us out of the cycle of our "earthly father's" sins and brings us to be like our Heavenly Father. Jesus ends the curse of generational sins by bringing us into a new family.
