Today's message, "Reverse the Curse"

Today's message was called, "Reverse the Curse." Most of you have heard about the 'Curse of the Bambino.' The supposed curse that began in 1920 when Babe Ruth was traded to the New York Yankees from the Boston Red Sox. In sporting folk lore that act brought about the rise of the Yankees and an 86 year world series drought for the Red Sox. The reality is that we are under the curse of sin because of one man's actions, Adam. But God has provided the freedom through one man, Jesus Christ, who broke the curse of sin at the cross. When we step across that line and follow Jesus, our past is erased and our future is secure, curse broken. Though the curse of sin is broken, often times sin can be 'passed' down through the generations. We talked about how to break generational behavior that goes against God's plan for our lives. I put in the notes that I would have a link to some scriptures that you can confess over your life to renew your mind and help you prepare for generational blessings. Our desire should be that we would become all that God has called us to be and that we would pass the blessing to our children, grandchildren, friends & family. Click here for a list of scriptures that you can memorize, meditate on and build up your inner man with. The curse is broken and God desires to help us pattern our lives after His Word and not what has been passed down to us from our family & friends!
