A Thought From Jacob

Been looking at Genesis 1-3 a lot lately and thought this was interesting:

The First Adam’s disobedience brought “sorrow”, “sweat”, and “thorns” (Genesis 3:17-19)
The Second Adam’s obedience caused Him to be “a man of sorrows” (Isaiah 53:3), to sweat “great drops of blood” for our sin (Luke 22:44) and to wear a “crown of thorns” (Mark 15:17).

Galatians 3:13 says that Christ “redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us.” He took the Curse upon Himself in order to redeem us from its condemnation. During this season, I hope that you’ll ponder not just the birth of Christ, but also His death and resurrection.
