Stand Firm

In the beginning Adam and Eve were in perfect fellowship with God, eating from the tree of life. They felt no shame from their nakedness in the garden. I believe their nakedness symbolizes their complete openness with God and each other. They had nothing to hide about who they were, because they had no knowledge of good and evil, only abundant life from God. But then they ate from the forbidden tree. They hid from God, clothed their nakedness, and felt great guilt, all forgetting about God’s amazing love for them. But God had a plan from the beginning. Even though the world is immersed in sin and we feel it’s affects every day, it is still possible to live free of guilt and shame only through the redeeming blood of Jesus Christ. “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”

Galatians 5:1 NIV
