Grace & Consequences
October 17, 2010 Series: Genesis: In the Beginning
Topic: Biblical Passage: Genesis 3:8–3:24
Reality: Our world is filled with cruelty, hurt, disease and death. The question is... "how did this world which God created for His glory and for us get so messed up"? Genesis chapter 3 reveals the beginning of human sin and the consequences that are the direct result of our sin. An important understanding regarding the consequences of our sin is that God does not take pleasure in our suffering. The God of the bible is not a vindictive and seething brute who takes joy in punishment and pain. Genesis chp. 3 clearly reveals God's amazing Grace in the midst of His justice.
