English Sermon (05/30/21) – 3 Circles: Brokenness (Genesis 3:1-19)
In this sermon, we will explore the second circle in our ‘3 Circles’ series which is “brokenness”. Even without looking into scripture, many of us have had at least a glimpse of what brokenness looks like in this world. When we turn on the news, we see brokenness in the form of homelessness, crimes, addiction, disease, cancer, human trafficking, etc. Brokenness is not a new issue and there is no one who is exempt from it because it is the result of sin. Genesis 3 is the beginning of when man separated from God and God’s perfect design, and the result has been passed on through generations. You see, we choose to depart from God’s design (sin) and that is what always leads to brokenness. That brokenness is also what helps us see our need for change. We try to fix brokenness through politics, inventions and technology – and while those things can be good, they are only temporary fixes. In the end, the only solution to heal our brokenness is the Gospel.
