OBEDIENCE – we should obey because God tells us to

Genesis 3:11 “Who told you that you were naked?” the Lord God asked. “Have you eaten from the tree whose fruit I commanded you not to eat?”

12 The man replied, “It was the woman you gave me who gave me the fruit, and I ate it.”

13 Then the Lord God asked the woman, “What have you done?”

“The serpent deceived me,” she replied. “That’s why I ate it.”

Adam and Eve failed to heed God’s warning in 2:16, 17. God’s command not to eat from the Tree of Conscience showed the essential nature of the obedience to God.Most commands of God are obviously for our own good.

But more important, the reason for obeying God is that he tells us to, and that must be reason enough.

When God asked Adam about his sin, Adam blamed Eve.

Then Eve blamed the serpent.

How easy it is to excuse our sins by blaming someone else.

We often fall into the trap of blaming others or circumstances for our personal failures.

But God knows the truth! And he holds each of us responsible for what we do.

Admit sin and apologize to God.

Don’t try to get away with sin by blaming someone else

Thank you. Be blessed!
