“So she took some of its fruit and ate it; and she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.” —Genesis 3:6
Mankind sinned by trying to be a god instead of being in God’s likeness. With sin, we brought into the world death, pain, suffering, lust, shame, and alienation from God. In His mercy, however, God left us a ray of hope by promising us victory over Satan: “I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will strike at your head, while you strike at his heel” (3:15).
Prayer: Father, may I hate sin as much as You do.
Promise: “When He expelled the man, He settled him east of the garden of Eden; and He stationed the cherubim and the fiery revolving sword, to guard the way to the tree of life.” —3:24
