20 And Adam called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living. 21 Also for Adam and his wife the Lord God made tunics of skin, and clothed them. 22 Then the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”— 23 therefore the Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. 24 So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.
At the end of Chapter 3 we see God clothe Adam and Eve and send them out of the garden. He also sent Adam out to till the ground from which he was taken or work to provide for him and his wife (children to come soon after). Sounds like most of us. We were born, mom and dad put some clothes on us, gave us instructions, and then sent us out in the world. We then repeat the process. The cycle has been going on since the beginning. God wouldn’t let man eat form the tree of life, however he sent His Son for us to know the way to that same tree. Eternal life comes through Jesus. Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me (John 14:6). Nothing of this world can fill the void other than Jesus. For years I missed this. But it’s never too late. So if you’re reading this, make today that day. Ask Jesus to come into your life. I promise…. it will never be the same. So when you don’t know what to say…..Just say Jesus!
