As we continue to reflect on Advent, we must take a moment to think about sin. There would be no need for Jesus’ redemptive mission if not for sin’s destructiveness. When sin entered into the world, it changed the original design for God’s creation. Yet in that moment, God had a plan. A plan of redemption and restoration for His children. Here we see a foreshadowing of Jesus Christ’s arrival to crush the head of the enemy. It’s through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice that we have power to overcome.
What ways has sin impacted your life? Are there any sins that you need to repent from? Take a moment and invite the stillness of this season into your heart to pray. How will you move forward with new revelations on God’s plan for redemption and triumph over sin?
