The First Sin
February 10, 2017 Speaker: Series: New Beginnings
Topic: Sermon Passage: Genesis 3:1–3:24
Our first parents fail to trust God's good provision for them. Instead of letting God decide what is good and evil, they desire to put themselves in the place of God by determining right and wrong for themselves. They listen to the word of Satan instead of obeying the clear word of the Lord. They are subdued by a creature instead of subduing it. As a result, God enacts the curses of the covenant on them. And yet, even in the curse there is a hint of hope. God promises the seed of the woman will crush the head of the serpent.
