 Breadcrumbs: Heritage – Genesis 3

Genes 2:16-17
“ And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”

Genesis 3:1
“Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”

  • This is Satan’s role. Always gets us separated from God and affect our tenderness to the leading of the Spirit.

“The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”

“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

  • Satan is trying to cause doubt and question God’s authority and to forget about the consequences from what God said.
“When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.”

There are three kinds of temptations in the world:
The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, the pride of life.

I John 2:16
“For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world.”

  • Sin produces shame, fear and blame.
“Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.”

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. 9 But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?” He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.”
This is a question God may be asking of you today.  Where are you?
How are you most frequently tempted?
~ Friends
~ Entertainment
~ Your own imagination
~ It just seems to happen

For me, the worst thing about disobeying God
~ The guilt
~ Losing sight of Gods perspective
~It effects my relationship
~ The consequences outweigh the short-term pleasure
~ Displeasing God
