Matthew 19:8

"Jesus replied, 'Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard.  But it was not this way from the beginning.'"

There are so many things of this world that we live in that were "not this way from the beginning".  There are so many issues that we as the church must face today that Adam and Eve could never imagine:  Abortion, Homosexuality, Poverty, Divorce, Drug/Sexual/Domestic Abuse, War, the list could go on and on.  None of these things used to exist.  None of these things were part of God's good Creation, and yet here they are.  They are with us everyday.  If Adam and Eve knew the cost of taking that one bite, they would've never done it.

And so it is with our sin today.  Can you fully understand the gravity one sin has?  Can you begin to understand the weight of your own sin in the world? Now multiply that weight by the amount of people who have EVER lived on this earth at any time, past present or future.  Can you see now your responsibility for the state this world is in?  It's no wonder why our world today is so much more complicated (and broken) than it ever has been before.

In the beginning was the Word... Oh how desperately we need Him now!
"I'll never know how much it cost... to see my sin upon that cross..."
