November 26: The First Christmas Promise
Jesus first “appears” in a promise made to two of history’s biggest failures, Adam and Eve. Although their doubt and sin brought death, pain, and frustration into our world, God made them the oldest promise of all, a promise to crush the Devil and his accusations. We might feel like failures too, especially around the Christmas season. Maybe we didn’t keep our promises to God or our resolutions to be better people. But God’s old school promise still stands.
