My Bible Verse - Fill in the Blanks! (Advent Verses)
It's Advent time of the year again!
The verses telling about the coming of Jesus - Christmas! - are my very favorite.
So, from now until Christmas these will be Pete and my Bible verses!
"And I will put enmity (strong feelings of dislike)between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; He will crush your __, and you will strike his __."
Hint: Genesis 3:15
This is a really neat Bible verse. It's the very first one about Advent - the coming of Jesus as a human - in the Bible. It tells how the woman - Mary - will have a baby that will destroy the work of the evil one.
This is what Christmas is really all about - Jesus coming and destroying the work of the evil one!
Note: All the verses come from Melanie Karis (Ann Nichols) book, The Faith of St. Nick: An Advent Devotional. Have a look! It's for the whole family to enjoy or just one person! It's on sale for US $3.59 - plus 30% off all Amazon books until Dec 1 (or $3.49 for a Kindle version)
