Store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven
where moth and rust cannot destroy and thieves cannot break in and steal

What A Fall!

Imagine having never told a lie - any lie - never!

Imagine having never felt resentment, or bitterness or anger or rage.

Imagine having always loved with pure motives; having never known selfishness.

Imagine having always enjoyed peace and contentment.

Imagine having never been burdened by worry or anxiety.

Imagine always living in wonder and expectancy and joyfulness.

Imagine having never experienced shame, or doubt, or fear, or regret.

Imagine have a healed and intimate and forgiven relationship with your Creator.

Imagine having it all gone in a moment!

What A Fall!

From our vantage point, we sometimes have trouble understanding why Jesus considers the ruin of His perfect Creation, a big deal. For the same reason a fish doesn’t feel wet, we don’t get the horror of evil, and sin and wrong because we are evil. We are sin. We are wrong. Even our best efforts to be good are like used menstrual tampons.

From far, far east of Eden, we have no idea how good it was.

We have no comprehension of what was lost.

What A Fall!
