This Week's Sermon ( 8-22-17 )

" And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. "   Genesis 3:8

When God created Adam and Eve, He would come and visit them.

God likes fellowship, especially with His creation that He created in His own image.

" So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. "   Genesis 1:27

However, we lost that relationship with God when Adam and Eve ate of the forbidden tree.

Since Adam and Eve did this, their children and all the generations that follow to this present day are born in sin...separated from God.

However, God had a plan that He came up with even before He created the earth... and that would be for Him to become one of His creation that He created in His own image literally in human flesh and die for us in order to redeem us back unto Himself.

" Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 
But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 
Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, "   1 Peter 1:18-20

My friend, God does not need us nor does He need anything. 

The truth is, God wants us.

God knew the only way to redeem us back to Himself since Adam and Eve ate of the forbidden tree was to become flesh and blood like us, and shed His own blood for our salvation.

I will continue this soon.
