God is our creator who created all things by saying a wordand it was done, but when it reached time to create man, He did it in a special way. He used his own hand by taking soil and modeled man out of it in His own image and then breathed him life. He gave Adam an opportunity to name all creatures-both living on earth and those living in water. When Adam had finished this, he felt lonely. God made Adam to fall asleep deeply. He removed one of the ribs from Adam. He used that rib to create a woman that is Eve. Eve was then brought to Adam as a helper. This implies that God was the first psychologist.“let it be,”
God put them in the Garden of Eden to work and take care of it. He instructed them not to eat the fruits of the forbidden tree but unfortunately they disobeyed this. As God was walking around the garden probably visiting them, they heard His voice and they hid. When asked what was happening, Adam said the woman you put here with me gave me the forbidden fruit to eat while the woman said the serpent deceived me. They never accepted their sin instead they gave an excuse. How many times we Christians find ourselves in mistakes and instead of realizing these mistakes and asking for forgiveness we start giving lame excuses? Remember God is not interested about our excuses but wants us to accept our mistakes and repent.
Through Adam’s and Eve’s sin, there are three things which I see being fulfilled daily according to the Bible. They are:
1. Two opposite sex meet and form something known as foetus in the female’s womb. What surprises me most is how women scream in pain when the foetus knows that its time is over and it can’t stay any longer in the womb.
2. Man has no option other than to work tirelessly. Man has to sweat while working working in order to fulfill the family's basic needs.
3. It has to occur and there is no option available to prevent it from occurring. It doesn’t know the rich or poor, wise or foolish, old or young, educated or uneducated etc. Yes, the soul has to return to the creator when that time comes. What was to happen if our God was to reveal to us the day of our death as He did to Hezekiah?
Before that time reaches, work each day to give your best as if it is your last day on earth.
