Sermon Series: God's Messy Family: The Family Gap

Families are a mix bag. They are not perfect. Maybe you have a family, or maybe you don’t. God is inviting us and adopting us into a great, normal, messy family. And there will be times where we hear God promise a blessing and then a gap between the fulfillment of that promise. There is a gap, or a “meantime” that we wait for deliverance and fulfillment. Much of life is in the meantime, there is a message and hope for us as children in the family of God. God is not only active during the gap, but in the relationships of the family as well.

Genesis 15:1-6

1After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward. 2And Abram said, Lord GOD, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus? 3And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir. 4And, behold, the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir. 5And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. 6And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness. (KJV)
