Advent: Day Two


Not long after God created the earth, the first sin happened. We read in chapter 3 of Genesis about how Eve and Adam fell into sin. What struck me tonight as Daniel and I were reading the devotion, was that in Genesis 3:15, there is the promise of redemption for the sins of all of us. Even in the story of the first sin, we can see the promise of a Savior to come, foretelling the sufferings of Christ and the final victory over His enemy Satan! (p. 19) That is definitely reason to celebrate the birth of Christ!
