A thought on Gen 3

Today while talking to my son about Gen 3, concerning Adam and Eve's sin, and how they were punished,  I realised 1 important point that was missing in the Bible narrative. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying the passage has error.

We read about how Eve was tempted, how they sinned, how they hide themselves from God, how they gave excuses, and finally how God  pronouce His judgement and the penalty they will face.  And ultimately they were drove out of Garden of Eden.

The point I am trying to make is that in the whole narrative, I did not see Adam and Eve confess their sins.  Never did they ask forgiveness, and even when they were drove out of Eden, they did not beg for mercy.

I realised, that is how I have behave when I sinned.  Most of the time, I would give excuses for the sin committeda.  I may even try to justify it.  I may even unwilling accept the consequences that brought about by the sin, but just like Adam, and Eve, not willing admit that I have sinned or ask for forgiveness or beg for mercy.

I wonder would things turn out differently if Adam and Eve would confess their sin and asked for forgiveness and even beg for mercy?

I welcome comments and your thought on this.

Abundant Evangelism

 

A New Perspective to Understanding and Applying 2 Cor 9:6

 

 6Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.

 

Many of us know this verse in 2 Cor 9:6 as a verse normally used to encourage us about giving unto the Lord.  Recently I was challenged to a new understand of this verse while reading a book entitled “Church Planting Movement” by David Garrison.

 

In the book, the author uses this verse to explain the principle of over-sowing in evangelism. “Just as nature requires a tree to drop thousands of seeds to produce a single sapling, or a human body to generate hundreds of eggs to yield a single baby, so it is with evangelism. … … … If nature’s principle of sowing abundantly to reap abundantly is true, then so is its opposite: if you sow sparingly, you will reap sparingly” Have you ever wondered why is our church / ministry today not growing?  

 

Have we been sowing the seed of the Gospel abundantly, or are we holding back to wait for the right time?  

 

Pray that the Lord of the harvest will move us to sow generously and boldly for Him, so that we too may reap abundantly the harvest!
