[If you have a printed Bible available, I recommend you read the passages directly from it. It’s a great way to teach our children to treasure it.]
Christmas was announced from the beginning . When the first humans, Adam and Eve disobeyed God, God told the serpent (Satan) that he would send a person, a deliverer (Jesus) to destroy the power of evil.
“The Lord God said to the serpent,
‘Because you have done this,
cursed are you above all livestock
and above all beasts of the field;
on your belly you shall go,
and dust you shall eat
all the days of your life.
I will put enmity between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and her offspring;
he shall bruise your head,
and you shall bruise his heel.'”
(for a better understanding of this truth, read Genesis 3 from the beginning)
Thank you, God for fulfilling your promise of sending the deliverer of my soul. Thank you for freeing me from the slavery to sin. In Jesus’ name, amen.
