And the LORD GOD called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard Thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And He said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? And the man said, The woman whom Thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. And the LORD GOD said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. (Gen 3:9-13)
Disobedience to GOD's will and Word led to judgment, but in GOD's mercy the death sentence was not carried out immediately as it was deserved. While all mankind is under the judgment of GOD, because we are guilty of sIn, He does not give us what we deserve right away. GOD loves us and extends mercy to all so that we have the opportunity to turn from our sIn and turn to Him for Salvation. GOD takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rejoices when a sinner is born again by faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary. That is the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ that we are commanded to take to this lost and dying world, that they might believe, and believing have Life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Trust Him to restore what was lost in Adam and surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. Believe His Word and receive Him by faith in what He has already done to pay for your sIn on that cruel Roman cross for forgiveness and Salvation.
