Podcast 224: The Gift of Hating Sin

When we read in Genesis 3:15 about God’s curse on Satan we sometimes fail to see the incredible gift in that curse given to us.

“And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;

And you shall bruise His heel.”

“And what gift is that?” you ask.
It is the gift of hating sin.
