Then Along Comes Man
Now we move along to God's crown jewel of creation.
It was good that God created planets and stars and choose one planet to populate.
The highest peak of His creation was man. Why? Because only man was created in the image of God. Man was created to have a relationship with his Creator.
We read that God walked and talked with man in the garden. Man had all he needed or wanted.
Man was created innocent. Innocent in the area of being a blank slate. He had nothing to distance himself from his Creator.
God, as a loving creator met man's needs.
Being created in the image of God he was like a child just learning. God was sort of a parent. man was the child. God said here was one thing man was not to do. To test man's obedience God said in love that there was one thing man must not do. "Of all the tress in the garden you shall eat. But of the tree in the middle of the garden, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you are forbidden to eat-- or on the day you do so you shall no longer be able to fellowship with me.
All went well, Until that day which will be covered In the next post.
God wants fellowship. He wants a relationship. That relationship was broken. Man was the one who broke it, not God.
The image was bent and man sought a relationship in other things, not God.
Just trying to make you wish to read the next post. See you there.
