God created the earth perfect. He created all the creatures and He created man (Adam). Because He saw man had no mate and was lonely, He created Eve. The devil came and they sinned
(Issue is the sin and not who did what first) As a result, they were banned from the Garden of Eden and life, as we know it, began. Full of trials, struggles, temptations and a separation from God.
God saw all that was going on and He was sad because of the separation so He sent His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, to earth, to live as man, to face trials, struggles, temptations and at the cross, separation from God. Man, sentenced to die, arrested Jesus. Yet He was sinless. He took upon Himself, our sins, our burdens, and our sickness. He went to the cross for us. How much God loved us to give His only Son to be a propitiation of our sins.
"And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also
for the sins of the whole world..." 1 John 2:2
If you don't know Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, I pray you will consider taking a few minutes to read the following. It will change your life. It won't be a life free of trials, struggles and temptations but it will unite you with the Father and with that comes joy in the time of sadness, peace in the times of struggles, hope in a hopeless situation and a love that never ends.
