Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings. Genesis 3:7 NASB
It didn’t seem that bad. It actually looked pleasing to the eye. The fruit was going to change everything. And it did!
That moment after Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit must have been the scariest moment of their life.
All of creation stood still as they listened to the devil and we’re disobedient to the Word of God.
In that very moment, sin entered the world. Adam and Eve’s eyes were opened to their disobedience and they quickly worked to cover themselves up and hide from God.
That’s what sin does, it shames you and makes you feel like you are unworthy. And you are! Because sin separates us from God!
But right after this moment, God set in motion a way to set things back and to deal with sin once and for all. His plan to send His only Son to die for our sins was put into motion.
And although you didn’t commit the first sin, you don’t have to die for your sin either. Accept Jesus as Your Lord and Savior and walk in God’s plan that He set from the beginning.
So then you could have your moment too! You can have your moment when everything is set right with the Lord. And the life that God wanted for His creation back then, can be truly put back.
A life of being right with God, experiencing His unconditional love and mercy is waiting for you.
Repent of your sin, turn to Jesus and experience walking into eternity.
Father, thank You for allowing me to know what it is to walk in Your ways. Let others come to your love and forgiveness through this prayer.
