How Everything Broke

March 21 2021

The first humans were almost perfect images of God. Their life was pure harmony. We cannot really imagine that. They knew only one limitation: two trees in the Garden of Eden which they weren’t allowed to eat the fruit from. They were warned: If you do eat the fruit, the almost perfect life is gone. A “point of no return”. 

We know the famous story about the forbidden fruit. Our forefathers couldn’t resist the temptation. They lost their innocence and there was no way back. Like a mirror shatters into thousands of pieces the conformity of humans with God broke. There are still specks of it in us, but the break is visible. Humans and creation are suffering till today.

But there is good news: God comes to us in Jesus Christ, offers forgiveness and eternal life and keeps back on his final judgement! Since he is love, he seeks salvation and not punishment!

Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.

Psalm 51:5

Do you know if God forgave you?

Bible text for deepening: Genesis 3:15-17 / John 3:16
