The first time I ever picked up the Bible I remember reading about Adam and Eve. They were the first humans ever created by God. They were in nature “pure”. God told Adam before Eve was created that he was not to eat of the tree of good and evil. After that, God warned that in the day he did eat of that tree man would surely die.

She would know everything, just as God does. Eve allowed herself to be deceived. After she took that bite she sealed the fate of all mankind. However we were not doomed yet. Even after being kicked out of the garden we still had God on our side. He gave us Jesus Christ. Who went through so much pain and torment in order to save us for the mistake Adam and Eve made.

The world and its desires pass away…” (1 John 2:15-16)

The fall of man and death of Christ. I picked these two topics because I felt that they were closely related. Two people sin and God sins his one and only son to correct their mistake. God’s love is unfailing, perfect and supreme. In his infinite love, God invites us to cultivate our eternal potential by his grace, through the atonement of the Lord of the Jesus Christ. In every gospel Jesus Christ’s inspires love, hope, and gratitude in the hearts of everyone.
