Every Man’s Battle: Fig Trees
It’s gratifying to study the scriptures. No matter how many times you read it, you will always get an insight of God’s wisdom.
We all know the popular story of Adam and Eve and their disobedience but look at this verse” Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves”NIV. Gen 3:7
When Adam and Eve ate the fruit, they gained the knowledge of good and evil but look at what they did when they gained knowledge, they sewed fig leaves as covering for themselves. Why did they do this? Because they felt guilt and fear of God for disobeying his word and thus they began the era of good works to seek God’s acceptance
People today still struggle with clothing themselves with “fig Tree” (works). The notion is that we have to do this and that to get God to love and accept us. Most people are fed with the fear of God, which makes them create standards that make them weary and put them in bondage.
God loves you and through His Son you are redeemed from the Adamic generation. You don’t have to struggle with wearing fig trees but enjoy the peace that comes from Christ who died to set you free.
God does not need to be persuaded to love us he already does but most Christians struggle to accept this. Embrace God’s love today.
