READ Our Daily Bread 12 July 2021 Today Devotional – Jesus Restores Us; written by Mike Wittmer

TOPIC: JESUS RESTORES US

Bible in a Year: Psalms 4–6; Acts 17:16–34

Key Verse: “The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them.” Genesis 3:21

Today’s Scripture: Genesis 3:17–24

MESSAGE

God’s description of the consequences of Adam and Eve’s sin in Genesis 3:17–24 illustrates a principle that’s seen many times elsewhere in Scripture: human behaviour has deep effects on the flourishing and welfare of creation as a whole.

Other texts that emphasize this principle are Genesis 4:12 and Romans 8:19–21. In Romans 8, we see that just as human sin and brokenness have brought devastation to all of creation, so too human salvation and resurrection bring transformation to everything: “Creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God” (v. 21).

Our Daily Bread 12th July 2021 Today Message

Although Sam had done nothing wrong, he lost his job on the assembly line. Carelessness in another division led to problems in the cars they built. After several crashes made the news, wary customers stopped buying their brand. The company had to downsize, leaving Sam out of work. He’s collateral damage, and it isn’t fair. It never is.

History’s first collateral damage occurred immediately after the first sin. Adam and Eve were ashamed of their nakedness, so God graciously clothed them with “garments of skin” (Genesis 3:21). It’s painful to imagine, but one or more animals that had always been safe in the garden were now slaughtered and skinned.

There was more to come. God told Israel, “Every day you are to provide a year-old lamb without defect for a burnt offering to the Lord; morning by morning you shall provide it” (Ezekiel 46:13). Every. Single. Day. How many thousands of animals have been sacrificed because of human sin?

Their death was necessary to cover our sin until Jesus, the Lamb of God, came to remove it (John 1:29). Call this “collateral repair.” As Adam’s sin kills us, so the Last Adam’s (Christ’s) obedience restores all who believe in Him (Romans 5:17–19). Collateral repair isn’t fair—it cost Jesus’ life—but it’s free. Reach out to Jesus in belief and receive the salvation He offers, and His righteous life will count for you. By: Mike Wittmer

Reflection: When have you suffered for someone else’s mistake? When have you benefited from someone’s success, and how should you think about both situations?

Prayer: Jesus, I believe in You, and I know Your life counts for me.

ARE YOU BORN AGAIN? IF NO

Accept Jesus Christ today and secure a life of eternal rest and Glory …

Lord Jesus, I believe you died for my sins, Forgive me of all my iniquities. I accept you as my Lord and Saviour from today and forevermore. Come and Be the Lord of my life and I am willing to obey your command and live according to your will as you help me, Thank you for accepting me into your fold. AMEN

JOHN 3: 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
