Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

Psalms 37:5KJV

"Man and Woman, Their Beginning"
November 28, 2023


Good morning My Brothers and Sisters. Over the last three weeks, I've had Adam and Eve on my mind, so a little over a week ago, I came up with the ideal of doing a devotional of "Man and Woman, Their Beginning" PART ONE "The Story of Adam," PART TWO "The Story of Eve" and then finish with PART THREE "The Story of Adam and Eve the First Family."

If you don't have the time to read them all at once, you can spread them out to fit your schedule.   


- The Story of Adam -

“Faith Will Move Mountains”

Brothers and Sisters, we live in a world where it's easy to forget our past, to forget the lessons of our history. But today, I want to remind us of an important story from the very beginning of our faith - the story of Adam. 

This morning tell you a story, of when I was riding in the car with a friend the other day, listening to the news. It was the same old stories about the same old problems that we face. It was like a broken record, playing the same thing over and over.  It was then that I realized how much we need to go back to our past, to the stories of our faith, so that we can understand how to live in the present.

Adam's story is one of hope and resilience in the face of adversity. He was created from nothing, with no knowledge of what was expected of him. And yet, he made a choice, a choice to believe in God and follow His commands. He chose to trust in God even though he had no idea what that would lead him to. 

Adam's story is a lesson in faith. We too often forget the importance of faith in our lives. We rely too much on ourselves and our own abilities and forget the power of faith in God. Adam was an example of trusting in God, believing that whatever He had planned would be for the best. We too must have faith that God's plans for us are for our good.

Adam's story is also a lesson in obedience. He was given one command by God and it was a command that he chose to obey. He chose to follow God's word even though he didn't understand why or what the consequences would be of his decision. We too must be obedient to God, even when we don't understand why He is asking us to do something. 

Adam's story is also a lesson in resilience. After he made his mistake, he was able to pick himself up and keep going. He didn't give up on his faith or on God's plans for him. We too must be resilient in our faith, no matter what challenges come our way. We must have the strength to keep going even when things seem impossible. 

Brothers and Sisters, the story of Adam reminds us that faith, obedience, and resilience are essential for us to live a life of purpose and meaning. We must remember our past and be willing to trust in God, obey His commands, and be resilient in the face of adversity. As we live our lives, let us remember that “faith will move mountains” and be encouraged by the story of Adam.


 - The story of Eve -

"When Fear Creeps in, Trust in God's Grace and Mercy Instead."

This next story, I want to take a moment to talk about the story of Eve. Now, imagine for a moment that you are walking along a beach. As you travel, you notice that the sand is clean, and the waves are crashing against the shore. You feel a sense of peace and serenity, until you see something in the distance, and you realize that it's a woman. You look closer and recognize her. It's Eve. 

Now, as we look at the story of Eve, we can learn some valuable lessons about life. First, we must understand that fear can be a powerful motivator. Eve was tempted by Satan and could have chosen to stay away from the forbidden fruit, but instead she chose to eat it out of fear of being left alone in the Garden of Eden. We must also recognize that fear can be our biggest obstacle to success. When we allow fear to control us, it can lead to regret and missed opportunities. 

Second, we must recognize that everyone makes mistakes. When Eve ate the forbidden fruit, she wasn’t trying to do anything wrong, she was simply trying to protect herself and her family from harm. We all make mistakes and it’s important for us to focus on how we can learn from them instead of dwelling on the past. 

Finally, we must understand that even in our darkest moments, God is still with us. Despite her mistake, God chose to forgive Eve and never abandoned her. He continued to love and protect her and provided her with hope for the future. No matter what mistakes we make in life, God is still there for us and will provide us with the strength to move forward. 

The story of Eve teaches us that no matter what mistakes we make in life, we must never give into fear or doubt. Instead, we must trust in God's love and grace and look to Him for guidance and strength. As the Bible says in Isaiah 41:10, "Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." 

Today, let us remember that God is always with us, even in our darkest days. Let us turn away from our fears and doubts and instead find strength in His love and grace. God is the one who will provide us with the courage to make the right choices and the hope that everything will be ok in the end. So let us never forget: when fear creeps in, trust in God's grace and mercy instead.


'- The Story of Adam and Eve as a Family -

"God’s Love Is Always There for Us to Help Us Start Anew."

Before I begin, I’d like to share a personal story. I was at the park with my son recently, and it was a beautiful day. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and I watched my daughters play. As I looked around, I saw many fathers and mothers with their sons and daughters. It again brings to mind the story of Adam and Eve, and how God created them as the first family. 

We all know the story of Adam and Eve, but what can we learn from it today? Let’s take a look at three key ideas. 
First, we can learn the importance of family. When God created Adam and Eve, he created them as the first family. He gave them the responsibility of taking care of each other and the world around them. He showed us that family is important, not just for our own happiness, but also for the health of society as a whole. 

Second, we can learn the importance of obedience. Adam and Eve were given specific instructions by God not to eat from the tree of knowledge. When they chose to disobey, they brought pain and suffering into the world. We must remember to obey God’s commands if we want to enjoy the fullness of his blessings. 

Third, we can learn the importance of forgiveness. Even after Adam and Eve sinned, God still offered them grace and mercy. He showed us that no matter how far we fall, God's love will always be there to help us get back up again. 

The story of Adam and Eve teaches us that family, obedience, and forgiveness are essential for a happy and fulfilling life. Let us remember these lessons today, so that we can continue to grow closer to God and each other. To close, I’ll leave you with this thought: no matter what, God’s love is always there for us to help us start anew.

Brothers and Sisters, I hope you enjoyed my three Devotionals today stories about Adam and Eve, as much as I did writing them, because all three fit so tightly together. We can all learn from Adam and Eve's stories.
