October 5, 2018 • Genesis 3
Adam and Eve, a snake, and a tree—the most recognizable elements of the biblical story of original sin. It may seem like the purpose of Genesis 3 is to provide an explanation for humanity’s ugly side and the world’s brokenness; yet at its core, we’ll discover proof of God’s love for his people through it all. Looking back at the Fall also helps faithful believers identify and anticipate the ways Satan continues to sow his deceit and temptation in our lives, while reminding us that God doesn’t leave us to withstand the devil’s attacks on our own; already in the Garden of Eden he promises salvation. Together let’s discover how God will ultimately bring us home again.
