It wasn’t that big of a deal, right? It was just a piece of fruit.
The sin, seemingly small, and the snake, seemingly small both snuck in smoother than smooth.
The devil has been using that same scheme since day one.
-it’s not that big of a deal
-it’s just one
-it’s only human
-it’ll be ok
Don’t be fooled. When God says no, He means no.
Eventually there will be a consequence, and you really don’t have any idea how far that consequence could spiral reaping destruction on more people than just yourself.
It really is a big, big deal.
“Have mercy on me, O God,
according to your unfailing love;
according to your great compassion
blot out my transgressions.
Wash away all my iniquity
and cleanse me from my sin.”
