Last week at Route 415, we learned that God did not want Adam and Eve to sin, as he knew what the result of sin would be. Yes sin would bring death, destruction, suffering, etc. into the world, but more importantly sin destroyed our original connection with God. We were created to live in connection with God and according to his commands. We were to be obedient but not robots. As a result of this original sin, every person is born with a sin nature, a tendency to sin. We will examine this concept by looking at the story of Cain and Abel.
Even after the fall, however, God still showed mercy and His love for man; he revealed very early his desire to restore the original connection between Himself and man.
Scriptural Focus: Genesis 3 and 4, Hebrews 11:1-4, 12:14-24
Our memory verse for this week is 1 John 1:7, “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” Any person that memorizes it and recited it to Randy earns 5 pounds for the rice bank challenge!
Join us on February 1 for our next Route 415, “And He Died – the importance of Genesis 5”.
