Step #3: God provides clothing too

After Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden, they realized that they were naked and were ashamed of it. In Genesis 3:21, it is stated that “the Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them”. It’s amazing if you think about it: God provides clothing too??? But more amazing is the fact that these clothing were made out of garments of skin. Now if we think about it: where did these garments of skin come from?

They could really only come from the killing of some animals to provide these skins. In this sense, this was actually the very first act of sacrifice in the Bible — a sacrifice of the innocent for the guilty…and a shadow of the ultimate sacrifice to come.
