“And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.” Genesis 3:8 AMP
In the back of my mind I’ve always thought what happened to Adam and Eve was harsh. How it affected all of mankind to follow was a tough sentence as well.
Today I finally realized what a despicable thing Satan did. The one purpose that God created mankind for, FELLOWSHIP, Satan destroyed. What God wanted more than anything of His great and beautiful work was destroyed. He wanted to be with us. Walk with us. Talk with us. And the battle between good and evil amplified…with mankind in the middle. Satan brought death to the forefront and twisted it to make it attractive. Death of perfection. Death of innocence. Death of purity. Twisting is what Satan does best.
Father, thank you for sending Your Son to conquer death for me. He set me free! He was so perfect and suffered so much. Help me to remember and be willing to suffer for others when You ask. Father, give me a heart like Jesus.
