Be Faithful

So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food,
that it was pleasant to the eyes,
and a tree desirable to make one wise,
she took of its fruit and ate.
She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.
- Genesis 3:6 -

The first humans failed their test of faith. They trusted what they saw rather than believing what God said. They chose to walk by sight rather than by faith.

Humanity has followed this example ever since.

What were the consequences of faithlessness?

Adam and Eve's sin of faithlessness destroyed the close relationship they had with God.

Adam and Eve chose to follow the faithless Satan rather than the faithful God. Satan persuaded them to focus on what they could see rather than what God said.

The strategy was so successful that Satan has consistently used it on humanity.

Be faithful because God is faithful.
