God The Redeemer
Topic: Old Testament Scripture: Genesis 3:8–3:24
If you or I were God, our response to the rebellion of the people we'd just created would probably be to take them out altogether. Fortunately, we're not God! While He would have been totally justified in doing that, God's response reveals not only His justice, but also His mercy. The God who created is also a God who pursues. Yes, the world became cursed because of our sin, but God announces the hope of a new Adam who will defeat Satan and claim the ultimate victory.
