Have you ever heard the greatest love story ever told?”It is about the love of God for a world: a world that did not love Him. Yet He died to save it. John 3:16
Over 2000 years ago the Creator God made a fascinated world, with two beautiful people, whose names were Adam and Eve.
When the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, neither wild plants nor grains were growing on the earth. For God had not yet sent rain to water the earth. Instead, springs came up from the ground and watered all the land. God then formed the man from the dust of the ground. Breathed life into the man’s nostrils, and the man came alive, and from his ribs He made the woman.
So God planted a garden, called it Eden, and it became their home. God made all sorts of trees grow up from the ground—trees that were magnificent and that produced delicious fruit. In the middle of the garden he placed the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
One day the serpent, visited Adam and Eve. It was the smartest of all the wild animals God had made. And he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?” “Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,” the woman replied. “It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, ‘we must not eat it or even touch it; if we do, we will die.’”
Well! “You won’t die!” replied the serpent to her. “God knows that you will be wiser. As soon as you eat it, you will be like gods, knowing both good and evil.”
She was convinced. The tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took the fruit and ate it. Then gave some to her husband, and he ate it, too. Suddenly they realised they did wrong by not listening to God and they felt ashamed because they were naked. So they sewed fig leaves together and covered themselves.
In the cool of the day God visited Adam and Eve and realised they had disobeyed Him. He was sad, because He loved them and He knew they would die. So He made them new clothes from an animal he had to kill, asked them to leave their home, but promised them He would save them.
