The story of Adam and Eve is our story. We too choose to buy the lies of the ancient serpent that God is not enough to provide enough of what we need. So in mistrust we push God out and take over. It is not a pretty picture. We rejected God’s primary control in our lives and we now live in a world of want. We are never satisfied. We seek to fill the emptiness with things that will never fill us. Sometimes we even try to find satisfaction in religion. In religion we are forever trying to be good and only come up short and the guilt and shame grows and we feel the condemnation. The curse is reversed only in Jesus. In Jesus, there is now no condemnation (Rom. 8:1). In Jesus we re-discover that God is enough to make us more than enough.
