Text: Genesis 3:20-24.
“And the LORD God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins and clothed them,” (verse 21). Much as God punishes sin, He extends
grace to His disobedient children. The significant part of this clothing is that it required the shedding of blood; an animal had to be killed. This foreshadows God’s way of removing sin and pointing to the shedding of blood by Jesus Christ on the cross. Therefore, the killing of animals to get skin was a shadow of future shedding of blood by the Redeemer to remove sin. This was a prophecy of the coming of Jesus Christ whose blood was shed once for all for the remission of sin.
Reflect on verse 21, what areas do you see God’s grace in this verse?
What encouragement do you get from this verse?
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ thank You for the blood of Jesus Christ which washes away the sin of this world. Thank You
for saving me, Amen.
