December 2nd – Genesis 1:26-31

Genesis 1:26-31

When we go to the Bible to read about our Savior’s birth, we usually turn to the New Testament. But the coming of Jesus Christ into this world actually begins in the book of Genesis. Because before He ever created man, God knew we would need a Savior. Our Father, in His infinite wisdom, knew we would fail Him. He knew how great man would fall, and stain His perfect creation with our wickedness. Yet He created us anyway. And going a step further, God gave us the gift of creating us in His image. From His great love, He uniquely blessed us with all of His amazing qualities, including the ability to have a close, personal, relationship with our Creator. But God also knew how that relationship would be severed by our sin. And so He Himself became a man and lived among us. Our Emanuel came to restore and establish an unbreakable bond between us and Him forever!
