Salvation and Healing | More Than Words

Salvation: A Healing Metaphor
Matthew 1:18-21
80% of the global population is an honor-SHAME culture.
Salvation = “sozo”
Salvation is a HEALING metaphor.
Salvation is the physical, emotional, and spiritual healing of what robs our WORTH.
Guilt=punishment pattern vs. Shame-honor pattern
Guilt = I MADE a mistake | Shame = I AM a mistake
Shame separates us from where we feel LOVED.
For someone within a shame-honor culture, salvation is not “a PERSONAL relationship with Jesus.”
Salvation is INVITATION into the status of God’s family.
Jesus HEALS the sick.
Jesus enters into the shame in order to invite you to the FAMILY.
