Reflections… a Scripture verse and inspiration for daily living [4/18]

Passage: Genesis 3:8-13
Verse: Genesis 3:13b (NIV 2011)
“What is this you have done?”

This week’s devotional messages are focused upon Genesis 3, and what is often referred to as “The Fall” of mankind.  With recent events, we may be asking, “What is this you have done?”  Our thoughts may be drawn back to a time when life seemed perfect, or at least better.  The writer of the devotional, in reference to the Garden of Eden, stated, “In a garden that was once perfect in true, pure innocence and intimacy with one another and with God, as suddenly as the shattering of a window pane, the peace of the garden is shattered.”  We learn, as we continue to read the Scriptures, that God will call all of us forward to account for our thoughts, actions, and deeds.  For those of us who have turned to Jesus Christ as our Savior, Lord, and Redeemer, may we find comfort and peace today.  For those who are far from Him, may they find their way to Him and His awaiting arms of protection and care.  Lord God, may Your kingdom come.  May Your creation, and everything in it, be restored to its original glory and state of perfection. (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
