When man committed the first sin, peace was broken between us and God, and we were condemned with the punishment of death and eternal separation from God. God in His desire to have a loving and gracious relationship with mankind, reached out and promised that someday He would send someone who could reconcile our broken relationship and satisfy the atonement for our sins. Man was promised a Savior!

Genesis 3:15, “I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.”

Today’s Song:

O Come, O Come Emmanuel
sung by Selah

song originates in the medieval Roman Catholic Church, c.12th century


Oh come, Oh come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear

Rejoice, Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, Oh Israel!

Oh come, Thou Dayspring, come and cheer
Thy people with Thine advent here;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death’s dark shadows put to flight

Rejoice, Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, Oh Israel!

Oh come, Thou rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan’s tyranny
From depths of hell Thy people save
And give them victory o’ver the grave

Rejoice, Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, Oh Israel!

Rejoice, Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, Oh Israel!
