Daily Inspiration: Jesus our Champion
March 5, 2020, 4:00 AM

Genesis 3:15
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.

 

Thought for Today

God’s response to Adam and Eve’s sin continually surprises me. Having just been betrayed by the people He loves, God promises to personally tackle the problem on their behalf. He could have simply cursed us, or wiped us out and started over. Instead, He pledges to send a Champion through the woman’s offspring who will crush the serpent and set everything right. This promise was fulfilled at the cross of Jesus. This is the way God loves us still. In the face of our struggle with sin each day God turns to His Champion, Jesus Christ, to see that it is set right. As you begin your Lenten journey, fix your eyes on your Champion. See how He lives and loves, because He is doing it for you.

 

Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank You for promising to send a Champion to fight for me when You saw my rebellious heart. Help me to learn from Him each day. Amen.
