Return of the acciaccatura

6 02 2011

One of the things I love about reading the early chapters of Genesis is spotting the grace notes that occur.  OK, so you need to know a bit more about the Bible to be able to spot them, but I don’t think it’s a spoiler to say, “Look at these.” 

  • God promises that there will be a deliverer – Genesis 3:15
  • He introduces an interim measure – sacrifice – Genesis 3:21
  • God invites man back – Genesis 3:9; 4:9
  • God makes a covenant with Noah – Genesis 9:8-17 – remember the rainbow kiss
  • A godly lineage is established – Genesis11:10ff

Although mankind is in a royal mess, there is hope.  We just need to keep our eyes open…and be patient.
