Genesis 3:6 – When the woman saw that the tree produced fruit that was good for food, was attractive to the eye, and was desirable for making one wise, she took some of its fruit and ate it. She also gave some of it to her husband who was with her, and he ate it.
She also gave some of it to her husband who was with her. Today we see men’s lives being wasted. We are allowing our families to be destroyed. And we are loving people into hell. All through the same sin we see in Adam. Adam was given a command by God – “you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil”. And there he sits watching his wife be deceived instead of taking a stand. I feel the weight of this in my own life. There are people dying with no knowledge of Jesus and I am failing. We must be devoted to building our love for God and knowledge of God through reading His Word and praying with ceasing. We must be disciplined to pour that love and knowledge into our wives and children. We must persevere though all the attacks from the Adversary to unite as men of God and glorify Him with the sacrifice of our very lives in service to Him in our community and in the world. And this is merely our reasonable service.
Romans 12:1 – Therefore I exhort you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a sacrifice—alive, holy, and pleasing to God—which is your reasonable service.
