Adam and Eve broke up with God, but he repaired a broken relationship and made it good again. Like he does for all sinners whom he loves.

Notes And Next Steps

Genesis 3:1-15 + Part 4 of the series “Genesis: In The Beginning"

Adam and Eve became convinced that 1) God was lying to them, and 2) God didn’t love them as much as he said he did.

For the first time in eternity God became a victim.

Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?” (Genesis 3:8,9)

“Cursed are you above all livestock and all wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life. And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head and you will strike his heel.” (Genesis 3:14,15)

It is good. You still love us more than we believed you could.


        1. Pray as you meditate on this question: “When I fall into sin, what lies do I believe that accuse God of being the problem?” Ask for God’s forgiveness, which he promises. And rejoice that it is good.
        2. Listen to the song “Good” by Matthew West and Leigh Nash, referenced in today’s message: https://youtu.be/v2WkKzeJrkY. What makes the title so appropriate?
        3. People make 2 common mistakes about the devil. They either shrug him off like he’s a fictional fairy tale character, or become too involved in his evil work. He is real. He is dangerous. He is not to be feared by believers who know that Jesus Christ has conquered him and all evil. Compare this to a healthy respect of fire or electricity. Discuss with your family.
