In this quarter, we studied God’s remedy for sin. It began with the story of how God provided a lamb as a substitute for Abraham’s son Isaac. That pointed to the Lamb of God who was our substitute on Mt. Calvary. We learned of the protection afforded by the Blood of the Lamb, what must be done to be under this protection, and what we must do to maintain it. We also learned of some of the blessings that are ours if we follow the Lord, and where our names are recorded when we give our hearts and lives to God.
It has been the aim of Satan since the beginning of time to bring all humanity into his ranks. Ever since the downfall of man in the Garden of Eden, the fight of right against wrong has been raging in this world. But God has made ample provision for the salvation of man’s immortal soul.
It is this provision that will be taken up in this study of “God’s Cure for Sin.” In Genesis 3:15 we see the first beam of light for lost humanity pointing toward Christ, the Redeemer of man. A key lesson in this quarter deals with God offering His own Son as a substitute for mankind.
Woven into this quarter are lessons covering the events leading up to Easter. We will explore the message and hope of the Resurrection as the foundation of the Gospel, and will learn how one can be enabled to walk in newness of life. We will also study some of the results of salvation and the benefits it brings into one’s life.
May God bless you as you explore His plan for the redemption of man.
