The perfect and beautiful garden lifestyle is shattered when Adam and Eve eat from the tree of good and evil. The serpent attacks both God’s word and character, and the sin of what Adam and Eve do leaves them fractured, exposed, and alone. And, banished from the shalom and harmony of the garden. When the Lord comes, though, He doesn’t shame them. He makes them promises and will go on to redeem them, again and again. This promise remains for us. There is hope for us in a world marked by sin and death. In our shame, the Lord comes to us and promises us salvation.
