Read This: “Consequently, just as condemnation for all people came through one transgression, so too through the one righteous act came righteousness leading to life for all people. For just as through the disobedience of the one man many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of one man many will be made righteous. (Romans 5:18-19).

Think: Sometimes I wonder how the story would have gone down if I had been the one in the garden instead of Adam and Eve. In my arrogance I like to think that I would have resisted the temptation to eat from the forbidden tree. But the truth is, just like Adam and Eve used their free will to turn against God, I am guilty of rebelling against him too.

I also wonder if Adam and Eve understood the full impact of their consequences. One act of disobedience affected all of creation, the history of the entire world—especially mankind. Sin created a wall between them and God. They had never been separated from God so how could they know or imagine what it would be like if he wasn’t there? What would it be like not to talk to him, walk with him, and experience his majesty every hour of the day not just for them but for everyone? Hard work, painful childbirth, and eventual physical death were part of God’s punishment, but those were nothing compared to the absence of God.
