Genesis 3/Romans 5-The Ultimate Comeback

The Bible is filled with stories of people’s failures turned into God’s victories. The heart of the story, however, begins with original sin of Adam and Eve.  God created the world.  He formed it and filled it with all manner of animals and plants.  He created men (Adam and Eve) in His own image to be in relationship with God and to caretake the garden that had been created for the people’s pleasure.

  
Sadly, they were convinced that if they violated the one rule–eating from the “Tree of knowledge of Good and Evil” they would be Like God.  First, they were created in God’s image–Like God.  Second, good was apparent–they only learned about evil. And finally, their disobedience put sin in the genetics and made all that came after sinful and therefore separated from God.


The ultimate comeback, however, came through God, the Divine Kindred Redeemer. Adam’s sin brought death to all that came after.  But God’s erased the curse by His demonstration of love for us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  That death on the cross literally took the penalty of sin and opened a door for us to have fellowship again with God.  


We can never underestimate the depth of love and sacrifice God made to be in fellowship with us. All we must do is realize that we are never able to be good enough or can do enough to be saved. Then we simply surrender our heart to God and follow Him closely.  In doing that, we experience the ultimate comeback.


God Bless You


11 And he said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that

11 And he said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?”

12 The man said, “The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.”

13 Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”

The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

14 So the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this,

15 And I will put enmity
    between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring[a] and hers;
he will crush[b] your head,
    and you will strike his heel.”

16 To the woman he said,

“I will make your pains in childbearing very severe;
    with painful labor you will give birth to children.
Your desire will be for your husband,
    and he will rule over you.”

17 To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’

“Cursed is the ground because of you;
    through painful toil you will eat food from it
    all the days of your life.
18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
    and you will eat the plants of the field.
19 By the sweat of your brow
    you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
    since from it you were taken;
for dust you are
    and to dust you will return.”

20 Adam[c] named his wife Eve,[d] because she would become the mother of all the living.

Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned—

13 To be sure, sin was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not charged against anyone’s account where there is no law. 14 Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who is a pattern of the one to come.

15 But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many! 16 Nor can the gift of God be compared with the result of one man’s sin: The judgment

I commanded you not to eat from?”

12 The man said, “The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.”

13 Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”

The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”
