It Takes Blood

Genesis 3:21 21 The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. (NIV)

To cover the sinfulness of Adam and Eve, God killed animals and used their skin to clothe them.  It took the shedding of the blood of the animals to cover the sin of Adam and Eve.  Before God came down in flesh to this earth it took the blood of animals sacrificed daily to cover the sins of the people.  Today it takes the blood of Jesus to cover our sin.  Since Jesus is the perfect, sinless Lamb, His one-time sacrifice covers our sin for eternity.  Just as Adam and Eve had to wear the skins of the animals to be covered, we must wear the blood of Jesus to be covered.  We wear His blood through accepting Jesus in our hearts, minds and lives, choosing to follow, obey and serve Him and confessing (giving to Him) our sins daily.  Our clothing is no longer animal skins but the righteousness of the sinless Jesus through His shed blood.
