Overcoming Our Genesis 3 Moments

Revelation 22 is one of five chapters in the Bible that are key to understanding the rest of the scriptures. These five chapters are Genesis 1, 2, and 3, and Revelation 21 and 22. In Genesis 1 and 2, God creates the world and the picture of perfection is breathtaking. However, in Genesis 3, sin and rebellion mar the beauty of creation and subsequently, curse is introduced into the world. The last two chapters of Revelation, 21 and 22, show the world completely restored and redeemed. Everything in between is dealing with what happened in Genesis 3 to take us back to Genesis 1 and 2 as it is seen in Revelation 21 and 22 (You might want to read that again). The wondrous grace of God is that we are not stuck in our Genesis 3 moments—the moments where we have rebelled, sinned, messed up, made mistakes. Instead, God is constantly working towards our redemption as He offers us grace and salvation through Jesus Christ.
