Son of God: 6×6″

November 27, 2010

 

“For this purpose the Son of God was made manifest, namely, to break up the works of the Devil.”

1 John 3:8

Why do we grow old and die? Adam and Eve were to live forever if they remained subject to Jehovah. Only if they rebelled would they die. Jehovah lovingly told them, “From every tree of the garden you may eat to satisfaction. But as for the tree of the knowledge of good and bad you must not eat from it, for in the day you eat from it you will positively die.” (Genesis 2: 16,17) In the day that they listened to the lies of Satan and rebelled, they began to die. They lost perfection and could pass on only sin and imperfection to their offspring.

In the languages used in the Bible, the verb forms for sin mean “miss,” in the sense of missing or not reaching a goal, way, mark, or right point. Because of Adam and Eve, we “miss the mark”, fall short of perfection. Like a terrible inherited disease from which there is no escape, we all get sick, grow old and die.

“That is why, just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men because they had all sinned.” Romans 5:12

But the ransom sacrifice of Jesus, as in the scripture used in the card above, can rescue us from this. How grateful we can be that Jehovah provided the ransom to rescue us and give us the hope of an everlasting future without sickness and death.

This card is 6×6″, so it can’t be printed as a complete card on most home printers. But scrapbooking cardstock comes in 12×12″ sheets so one sheet cut in two will form 2 card backings. Print the 6×6″ card front and adhere for a lovely big card.

The folder contains one 6×6″ file, and one slightly larger with a 6×6″ Cutting Edge.
