Story Focus: We explore this idea in week three, as we head to Genesis 3. Here, we see that although Adam and Eve had an unbroken, loving relationship with God, ultimately they decided not to trust God’s plan. God gave them one simple rule to obey: don’t eat from that tree. Adam and Eve decided to break the one rule . . . and when they did, it changed the course of history. But God never stopped loving people. God had a plan to continue a relationship with us—which culminated when God sent Jesus to be our Savior.
Bottom Line: God loves us no matter what. The fact is, we’re like Adam and Eve. We’ve all sinned and fallen short of God’s glory. But we also know that God still loves us, and that will never, ever change. God loved us enough to send Jesus for us. Because of what Jesus did on the cross, we can have a relationship with God that will last forever.
