Good morning!

Text:  Genesis 3-4; Psalm 2
It is painful to read about the Fall of humankind in Genesis 3.  Against the backdrop of Satan’s craft, the deception, the rebellion, and death, God’s character shines through.  After the Lord pronounces judgments upon the serpent, Eve and Adam, His very next move is this:

And the Lord God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins and clothed them. (Genesis 3:21)

From the very first, our good God made provision for their sin.  He lets them live, procreate, and be blessed – even after their great offense.  That is because He is a God of grace – unmerited favor. And that same grace is what flows into our lives today.  Do you know His grace?
in Him, Mike
