In the Garden of Eden, we see humanity make a massive mistake – disobeying God’s one and only direction. Immediately, they experience consequences – shame, fear, blaming others, loss of connection, and more. WATCH VIDEO…
As the Bible continues on, we see that the story has only begun. God continues to move in pursuit of the heart of humanity. He reaches down to individuals and nations, gives opportunities to change their way of perceiving reality and return to Him. Some do and others don’t.
But His heart is always for restoration, redemption, reconnection.
Paul wrote: “…God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
Not after we cleaned up our act – because we don’t have the power to do it anyway. Not after we checked off all the boxes of requirements to get into His good graces. While we were still living lives defined by sin, He died…for us…to restore that connection.
His heart longs for us regardless of our performance.
