A 10-pound Chihuahua/Poodle mix saved a little girl from being bitten by a rattlesnake earlier this week. Maya Delarosa was making mud pies with her little sister in Hueco Tanks, Texas, when a rattlesnake struck. Their dog, Psycho, intervened and was bitten in the eyelid. Both girls are safe, and the veterinarian thinks that Psycho’s eye will be all right. The girls’ grandmother credits the dog with saving the children.
Just as a small dog can save people from a snakebite, a small baby from heaven made it possible for everyone to be saved from their sins. Jesus died on the cross to take away the poisonous effect of sin. This was God’s plan from before the beginning of time, and was predicted early in mankind’s existence. In Genesis 3:15, God says that Someone would come along and crush the serpent’s (Satan’s) head. This is what Jesus did when he died on the cross to pay for our sins.
