The LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. – Genesis 3:21

When Adam and Eve fell in their rebellion to God, they knew that they were naked and covered themselves with figs. Since that time we constantly try to cover our lives in our own ways. But this is not sufficient. Notice that God provided the clothing that they needed for a fallen earth, but it came at a cost. The garments of skins imply that death occurred to cover the weakness of Adam and Eve. This is the first foreshadowing of the death that would cover the rebellion of mankind, when Jesus Christ gave Himself on the cross for us. God’s grace has been here since the beginning.
