In Genesis 3, we find the origin of God’s redemption plan for us. Despite what evil is done to you, what sin you have committed, or whatever circumstance you find yourself in, you were made to be saved. Do you believe this war is won so you can fight by the victory of Jesus Christ?

  • Our God saves us from Satan by conquering. (Genesis 3:15)
    • Satan bruised Jesus’ heel at the crucifixion. (Isaiah 53:10-11)
    • Jesus bruised Satan’s head by defeating death. (Revelation 20:10)
  • Our God saves us from sin by forgiving. (Genesis 3:21)
    • Sin against a holy God demands justice and wrath. (Romans 6:23; Romans 3:24-26)
    • Sin against a forgiving God yields mercy and grace. (Isaiah 61:3)
  • Our God saves us from ourselves by shepherding. (Genesis 3:22-24)
    • God shepherded Adam and Eve away from the tree of life in the garden, so that they would not live forever in a fallen, broken state.
    • Though God drove man out from the tree of life, He shepherded us to another tree of life, the cross of Christ, through which we can live forever in a forgiven, glorified state. (Hosea 2:15)

Discussion and Application

  • Understanding that God conquered Satan, in what area of your life do you need to move forward in faith, not fear?
  • When did you choose to trust in Jesus and experience His grace and mercy? If you have not yet done so, what is keeping you from trusting in Jesus today?
  • Considering that it is good for God to shepherd us and save us from ourselves, what area in your life are you trying to ignore God’s boundaries?
  • Who will you invite to the Christmas Eve service in order to share this good news with them?
