Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, (Gen. 1:26).
I was created a perfect man by my Father, God, and was gifted with a perfect woman called Eve, who became my wife. We lived in a paradise called Eden and managed the whole estate called ‘The Earth.’ We and everything we had belonged to God, but as image bearers of our Father, we were created moral beings with the freedom to choose. We made the biggest mistake of our lives when we chose to disobey a straightforward command not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. That act broke our relationship with God, and we instantly became slaves to Satan. Shame, fear, loneliness, evil, and death engulfed us. We could not redeem ourselves, and God, out of His love and mercy, stepped in to redeem us from the slave market. He paid the ransom for our lives with His own life. I have learned my lesson to love God with all my heart, die to myself, and live for Him alone. What is your story?
