Our Bible story for this month is about Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and the snake who tempted them to disobey God. This enemy of God—that is the meaning of the word, Satan,—plays a role in causing God’s good creation to “fall”.
What are three things that you see in our world that show you that the world is no longer all good? Try and identify the causes of these three things. How would things be different if God’s will was being done?
In The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones, part of the story goes like this:
Eve picked the fruit and ate some. And Adam ate some, too. And a terrible lie came into the world. It would never leave. It would live on in every human heart, whispering to every one of God’s children: “God doesn’t love me.”
Are there times you feel as if God doesn’t love you? What if this message really is a “terrible lie”?
This week, pray every day that you will be able to trust that God loves you.
