Adam and Eve's
WHAT WAS THAT ALL ABOUT?
So many people who 'confess Jesus', still live in uncertainty and fear, and then wonder, "Is there more?"
Until we understand our original sin, and the plan God has had for us (since the beginning), and the provision He made for our escape from the effects and the penalties of sin, you cannot know His power and His purpose for your life.
If you are like me, and many others, the ideas of
"The Consequence of Sin",
"Salvation by Grace through Faith"
have been difficult for me to completely understand.
I guess, for years, I just took the preacher's word for it. But, I have discovered how important it is to know and understand what this means, especially for anyone who would claim to follow Jesus and to be a Christian.
How about you?
Would you like to know? This is important - very important - it is important to understand and to do it.
It is important to understand because when you decide to become a Christian, you enter into a binding 'Covenant' or a contract with God, which is irrevocable. (Can you imagine shaking hands with God on a deal, and then trying to back out on God? Not good.)
Here is a topical list "From the Original Sin to Salvation". See if you can follow the progression from "Death to Life".
