Genesis, chapter 3 describes the entrance of sin into the realm of humanity.The first humans, Adam and Eve were given free choice.
The capability of doing wrong was a necessary alternative to Adam and Eve’s choosing to do right. There could be no true choice of good if that was the only option. For God to prohibit sin would also be to eliminate freedom.
The freedom of choice is one of the greatest gifts of God. We are allowed to choose whether we will follow God or ourselves….
When Adam and Eve chose to eat the fruit, they transgressed a divine marked boundary; an overstepping of the limits that God had set. Adam and Eve acted independently of God. The essence of Adam and Eve’s sin consisted of the rejection of God’s word will and ways. An elevation of the will of man over the will of God.
Adam and Eve’s sin changed their personal lives when they chose to disobey God’s command and to assert their will over God’s. Their sin changed the course of history and the entire human race.
You have been affected by their choice. Romans 5:12 says, “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned.”
The result of one’s (Adam’s) trespasses was condemning for all men.
Romans 5:18 says, “Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life.”
Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death.“
You have the same choice. Will you choose to follow God or disobey God?
Will you choose Jesus or reject him?
God has given you a free will to choose.
God has provided forgiveness by shedding the blood of his son for you. God has made the provision but it’s up to you to make the decision.
You have free choice.
