Avoid Sin, Avoid Death.
In Genesis 3:8-10. Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit and the moment they heard the voice of God, they ran away and hid from him, because they knew they had erred.
“Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking(A) in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid(B) from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. 9 But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?”(C)
10 He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid(D) because I was naked;(E) so I hid.” – Genesis 3:8-10.
God wasn’t the one chasing them, it was their sin. When you commit sin, you automatically run from God, and the intimacy between you and Him is destroyed.
Once the devil sees that you and your protector are now apart, he attacks you with all kind of issues. This then leads to spiritual death.
Spiritual death leads the sinner to eternity in hell. May we not experience spiritual death in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
Therefore avoid sin now, to avoid death later.
