Enter Sin

Today's reading: Genesis 3:8-24

Adam and Eve's choice to break the one rule God had put in place for them introduced sin into the world and changed everything for mankind and all of creation.

Genesis 3:8-24 contains abundant information and lessons for us, so I encourage you to reread this passage looking for additional information and teaching moments. One of the first things that stood out to me from this passage was the immediate impact Adam and Eve's choosing to sin had on them—for the first time they experienced guilt, shame and fear. As a result, instead of looking forward to spending time with God (which was their normal habit), they hide from Him when He came to the garden. Then, when God very appropriately questions them about their actions, they choose to play the blame game rather than admitting they were wrong and asking for forgiveness.

What did you learn about the influence and impact of sin (wrongdoing) from this account? Why is it important for us to be aware of our sinful nature and our propensity to sin? What does God's exchange with Adam and Eve show us about the consequences that always follow choosing to sin? Tami

Tami,

The very verse that popped out at me was and of all verses this one!
Could Eve have been the first original women's lib?
17 Then to Adam He said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree about which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat from it’;

Sin separates us from sweet fellowship with God.
I was noticing that Adam and Eve had visit from God and they could hear Him calling, I was just imagining that kind of fellowship with God which we can on a spiritul way,but when they sinned, the Lord's voice brought fear and revealed their nakeness in the presence of a holy God. How very sad?

We see the consequences of both Adam's and Eve's sin and we also we God's grace of forgiveness!
