Read Genesis 3:8-15


Read Genesis 3:8-15

8 That evening they heard the Lord God walking in the garden, and they hid from him among the trees. 9 But the Lord God called out to the man, “Where are you?”

10 He answered, “I heard you in the garden; I was afraid and hid from you, because I was naked.”

11 “Who told you that you were naked?” God asked. “Did you eat the fruit that I told you not to eat?”

12 The man answered, “The woman you put here with me gave me the fruit, and I ate it.”

13 The Lord God asked the woman, “Why did you do this?”

She replied, “The snake tricked me into eating it.”

14 Then the Lord God said to the snake, “You will be punished for this; you alone of all the animals must bear this curse: From now on you will crawl on your belly, and you will have to eat dust as long as you live. 15 I will make you and the woman hate each other; her offspring and yours will always be enemies. Her offspring will crush your head, and you will bite her offspring's heel.”


We often read verse 14-15 at Christmas as a reminder of Jesus; born of Mary who will 'crush' the serpent's head.  A beautiful reminder that from the moment of the fall God has planned our redemption.


Lord you know my sins.  Your love is enough.  Thank you for your plan to redeem me.
