We began a new series this weekend as we continue our journey through the book of Genesis this year at West Bradenton Baptist Church & North River Church. This new series, “I Am Sin,” explores Genesis 3 and what many call the Fall of Man. Our first message in the series, Genesis 3:1-7, began with the foundational truth that in Scripture Satan is deceptive. His subtle suggestion is that God cannot be trusted. What begins as a dialogue between Eve and Satan (taking the form of a serpent) ends with a painful price.
Sin never provides what it advertises. Sure it might be sweet for a season but it turns bitter quickly. I don’t need to go on and on about this reality, because if you are like me you know it to be true. (See Galatians 6:7-8)
The Good News is that where sin abounds grace abounds all the more. God has not left us alone to suffer the eternal effect of our sin? He is provided a way – a new and living way. That way is Jesus!
