Scripture: Genesis 3
The Big Idea: When sin entered the world, everything was broken, but God didn't abandon His creation.
You don’t have to look very far before you come face to face with hurt, pain and brokenness in our world. As much as we don’t like it, it is a reality we live with. And anytime we encounter it, we can’t help but ask “why”? Why disease? Why death? Why sin? Why insecurity? Why anything that seems to combat a good God? How did we get here? As God’s story continues, we are presented with the place where things take a turn. A snake outsmarts humanity and, as a result, the world exists as we know it. But we are left wondering, how does God fit into it all?
This week, we'll be talking about the details of Genesis 3 - the Fall. This is a dark day in God's story. The day when our relationship with Him was broken. This brokenness has been passed down from generation to generation. Despite our rebellion, God has not turned His back on us. He continues to selflessly pursue us - even going as far as putting on flesh and dying for us! Join us as we dissect what it means to live in a fallen world and fix our eyes on Jesus!
