Waiting for a response. This is where the story now sits.
The story in the Bible, at this moment, is anxiously awaiting the decision from Adam & Eve, the first two humans on planet earth.
They have been left with a decision to make, eat from the tree they were told not to eat from, or listen to God?
God has created mankind to share in a relationship with them. His desire is for them to know Him and be known by Him. He has extended His love to his creation, and revealed His desire for them, like a man on one knee, proposing--exposing his heart and showcasing his intentions--we wait to hear the response...
AND THE ANSWER IS, "NO."
The answer is "No", because the story in the Bible tells us that Adam and Eve choose to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
THE ONE THING THEY WERE TOLD NOT TO DO!
THE ONE THING THAT WOULD BE A REJECTION OF GOD!
Almost instantly, they don't choose God. As if they didn't believe God actually had their best interest in mind. In that moment, the story is broken. In that moment, the life they had been created to experience was shattered. In that moment, their story would be fused together with someone else's.
