Titanium TinkleBerry: The Dog Whom I Love part 3
Adam and Eve had a limited understanding of what the word death meant. But the serpent knew. He understood that death meant separation from God’s provisions. He knew that death meant that their lives were about to get much harder. They were going to have less peace and more stress. He knew that they would experience a world of turmoil and hardship from that point on. I can imagine how they felt to make such a colossal mistake with such a small decision. Since God always intended to be our sole provider, He had a plan, a sacrifice on a cross to save mankind from permanent death. The blood of Jesus enables God to see us as the perfect creations that we were meant to be. It also allows Him to send His provision to all that believe in Jesus’s sacrifice.
Matthew 5:48 KJV says, “be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” I think you would agree with me when I say that it is a pretty impossible command. But not for God. He is perfect and only perfect beings can be reconciled to Him. That is why the blood of Jesus is so important and necessary. This is why what we believe is so important. When I believe God loves me, in spite of my imperfections, through the blood of Jesus, I believe He will provide for me. I believe He will comfort me. I believe He will help me in my times of need. I believe He knows what is best for me and I trust Him to implement His best for me always. “ Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord,” (Romans 8:37-39 ASV).
