Christ Became a Curse for Us

Read Galatians 3:1-14 with Genesis 3:16-21

The curses placed upon the man and woman, for their disobedience against God, were just and necessary. To be cursed is more than just having God’s blessing removed; it is to be placed under condemnation and judgment for violating God’s glory. God brought the woman and man to justice, just as he did the serpent. But mercy still prevailed in judgment; these curses followed the promise of the seed of the woman, so that woman, man and creation was not subjected in futility, but hope of Christ Jesus, who became a curse for us [Gal.3:13].
