What I read today:
Genesis 3-4; Psalm 2; Isaiah 2; Matthew 2; Romans 2
Human beings fail. It’s that simple. Adam and Eve had it all. Paradise, perfect communion with God, no pain, no disease, ideal weather, absolutely everything.
But they fell into sin. We’re no different today. We sin, we fail, we fall. Our best isn’t good enough.
Yet God made a way. Genesis 3:15 says that God set in motion a plan to save each of us from ourselves. He set a plan in place that would end on a cross. God put a plan in place because we were precious in his site. We were so valuable that he sent his son Jesus to take our place.
The nails didn’t hold Jesus to that cross. His love for each one of us did.
