Vital signs- Saturday, December 2nd, 2023

The story of Christmas truly begins on the first few pages of the Bible. God has created the heavens and the earth and all that is within it.  The land, the sea, the animals, and the birds are all part of God’s good creation that showcase his power and glory. On the sixth and final day of creation, God uniquely makes mankind after his likeness and image. For a brief time, there is a perfect, whole, and happy relationship between God and his people. But trouble comes quickly when Adam and Eve listen to the lies of the devil and rebel against God’s good commands. A chasm now exists between a holy God and an unrighteous people. How will this relationship ever be restored? God explains His plan in Genesis 3:15. Speaking to Satan He says, “One day, there will be a son born that crushes your head, even if you manage to strike his foot on the way down.” That son is Jesus! This is the first mention of Christmas in the Bible. Satan may think that he has won the battle, but he will ultimately be defeated. Jesus is coming to destroy the power of Satan and restore the relationship between God and his people. As quickly as the problem arises, God makes a way.

“And I will cause hostility between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.””

‭‭Genesis‬ ‭3‬:‭15‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Reflection Question: How does this passage help shape your view of the significance of Christmas?
