Scripture Text for Today: Genesis 3:1-3:24
Today’s devotion is on Genesis 3:1-24, a crucial section to grasp. It’s hard to focus on just one thing in this chapter "the fall of man", pretty big deal. God tells Adam and Eve that they may eat from any tree in the garden, but the one in the middle of the garden. God tells them "You shall not eat from it or touch it, lest you die." The serpent deceives Eve by telling her "You surely shall not die". I wonder what Eve’s thoughts were before and after eating the fruit. Did she understand what had happened, that the act of disobeying God, caused hers’ and our separation from God? Up until this point Adam and Eve had enjoyed oneness with God, but this brought about a separation from God, a spiritual death.
