Devo God’s overwhelming Love and Grace Part 7
Genesis 3:22-23 Version (NIV)
22 And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.” 23 So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken.
Once again we see God’s overwhelming love and grace in action. You see if we were allowed to stay and continue to live in the garden we would have never left our life of sin. A lesson many a parents could learn for their own children today. Living in the garden would have enabled us to live in our sin without suffering the consequences of our sin, in other words why would or should I change I got it good. I don’t have to grow up. God also blocked us from eating from the tree of life and living in our sin forever. He allowed us to experience death for ourselves so we might have hope for a new life. Unless a kernel of grain falls to the ground and dies it cannot live and produce fruit. Think about it, unless I die to sin I can’t come back to God and live.
