Our Tangled Web, Our Tangled Selves – Gen 3:1-24

The Garden of Eden didn’t remain in its pristine condition for long. By the third chapter of Genesis, we see how sin resulted in a tangled mess of toxic relationships - humanity’s relationship with God and humanity’s relationship with one another.

 

In Genesis 1 and 2, we learned that humanity was created to be in relationship with God and with one another. In Genesis 3, we see that at the center of the fall was Adam and Eve’s mistrust of God. They did not trust that the world God created was the best for them. Trust in all relationships requires a freedom of choice to respond in love. Therefore, God placed one tree that was off limits to Adam and Eve in order to build or test that trust.

So What is it That Really Holds Us Together? – Ecc 4:9-12, Col 1:15-20

What a wonderful way to celebrate Mother’s day! It started with a homemade breakfast of scrambled eggs, waffles, muffins, and fruit; followed by a meaningful time of worship and communion. We had the privilege of having Dr. Paul Stevens as our guest speaker and he shared from a very familiar passage from Ecclesiastes 4:9-12,

 

9 Two are better than one,

because they have a good return for their labor:

10 If either of them falls down,

one can help the other up.

But pity anyone who falls

and has no one to help them up.

11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.

But how can one keep warm alone?

12 Though one may be overpowered,

two can defend themselves.

A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

 

From this passage, we see that there is synergy, sustaining help, comfort, and security. What is that third strand and what does it represent?

Under God's Rule, Humanity Flourishes - Gen 2:4-25
Written by John Tsang

Like the four different Gospels that tell a fuller story of Jesus life and ministry; Genesis 2 offers a different and complementary perspective to the Creation story. There are four major themes in Genesis 2.

 

First, we are given a picture of God’s very personal act of creation when He breathed the breath of life into the man and the man became a living being (2:7). Adam is different from all other creatures in that he is a spiritual being. This is one aspect of the image of God and it means that only God can meet our need for spiritual relationship.
