So far we’ve covered 4 pictures of Jesus in our album!
The first week…one of my favorites…we saw how Jesus was there in the beginning when God created the earth. Skeptical? I don’t mind…read this: Here
Week 2 we read about God’s creation and the first thing he did was to create Light. And we know Jesus said HE is the light of the world…so we have another glimpse of Jesus right at the beginning of creation. Read this and I’ll fill you in: Here
The next week was the first wedding and how Adams relationship with Eve is a portrait of Christ and the church. The most beautiful wedding photos ever: Here
And last week, we saw the picture of Eve’s being deceived and her husband lowering himself to her level, in order to save her. Here
Brilliant pictures for us…but maybe not so brilliant for those who had no New Testament to compare them with. Still, they’re there. And as we unfold the dusty pages of our album today, we will see what God did as a result of their sin.
As soon as Adam and Eve’s eyes were opened, they knew they were naked and covered themselves with fig leaves. God had said, “In the day you eat of the tree you will surely die.”
Before the day ended, in the cool of the evening, God came to visit them.
What do we know about Eden? We know it was perfect, it was lush, it was a place of complete relaxation, no worries, nothing to fear… a place to live…and it belonged to Adam and Eve. Paradise. That’s the word for it. Their every day was Paradise.
But an intruder came into their perfect life and they both fell into sin. Well, they didn’t fall into anything…they chose to believe a lie. And because of them, death entered the world.
This is a picture of all of us. Banished.
