Good morning my Ekklesia Family
Life is a series of choices we make every day. Hour by hour, minute by minute, all these choices have consequences which will directly affect us and those around us, for our good or to our detriment. While everything in life is not laid out in black and white choices, there are still decisions we can make that give us direction and purpose. By the power of God living in us, if we don’t make these good choices, by default, the opposite happens.
The first story after creation in Genesis is about a choice. Eve, without Adam’s leadership, chose to take fruit from a tree that gave her the ability to decide what was right or wrong. Instead of allowing God that ultimate, wise, place of authority she chose to redefine truth on her own terms. Since that time we have all (MEN AND WOMEN) been faced with the same choice. Will we fall victim to the enemy’s lies that we can do life better on our own? Or will we choose to believe that God has a better way?
God’s word, Truth, teaches us there is a better way. The right way. His way. This choice is the path of life.
There are two forces at work in this world, each with a plan to capture our hearts and devotion. Good and evil, God and satan.
By God’s power will we fight against our natural tendencies or let our human nature win?
Choose life, or death will choose you.
The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the Lord God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?” “Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,” the woman replied. “It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.’” “You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.” The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it, too. At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves.
