Calvary in Eden
“And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.“ Genesis 3:15 (NIV)
The promise of Christ was declared in Eden, Satan would bruise us but Calvary would stop him in his tracks. Satan’s attack is against our head because he seeks to influence us and ruin our ability to think straight. The devil doesn’t out right destroy us, but he deceives us and little by little draws our affection away from the Savior. However, the promise is sure, the crushing bruise against his heel will bring Satan to his end.
Sinfulness has become the default position of our fallen nature but thankfully the prophesied promise of the coming Christ would beat Satan at his own game of temptation by teaching us to counter with faith in Calvary.
Let’s pray today to trust in the promise given at Eden, that Satan will be crushed and our Savior redeems.
