A Mirror Image

Here I am at Day 2... So far, so good! I've done my daily Bible reading. Instead of the standard Bible reading schedule, which I've attempted several times (and unfortunately, failed), I came across one that lists the Bible passages in order chronologically. It is worth a try! Now it should read like a story instead of jumping back and forth! I'm really excited about it although right now, I'm still in Genesis. But it's always good to re-read passages. As a matter of fact, I read something yesterday that I thought was very interesting. Imagine, my first day back in the Word and God has already revealed something to me. The verse I read was simply this:

The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife, and clothed them. Genesis 3:21.

Adam and Eve had just sinned and realized that they were, in fact, naked. So what does God do? "Let there be clothes"? No, I don't think so. An animal had to die. A sacrifice had to be made so that they would have something to wear. This small passage of Scripture is like a mirror image of God's plan. He knew that eventually He was going to have to send His own son into the world to rescue sinners like you and me...

...Lord, I thank You for sending Your only son to die on a cross so that I may spend eternity with You...

  1. I am one that can never "read the bible through in a year." You know what is funny? I just started a chronological plan too!! But I started it a while ago, since I never keep with the day-to-day schedule anyway.

    Praying for you guys!!
