Eve - The Mother of All the Living

We tend to remember Eve for her sin in the garden but I imagine that she, like you and I, had many facets in her personality. What sets her apart is the fact that her first sin was recorded for eternity and changed the life of every person who came after her and was recorded in Scripture for eternity. Let’s look at some of what the Bible tells us about Eve.
Eve lived in a perfect world, a garden created by God. She had the perfect husband. We might wonder why she would do anything to disturb such a blessed existence. It started innocently enough - just a stroll through the garden.

Eve’s mistake. She listened to the snake (The serpent who is Satan. Revelation 20:2) as he twisted and contradicted God’s word even though Eve knew what God had said about not eating from that one tree in the center of the garden -the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If they ate from that tree they would surely die.

The serpent asked, "Did God really say, ‘ You must not eat from any tree in the garden?’ And then he lied to her and caused her to doubt God’s character, suggesting that God wanted to hold her back. Satan has been a liar from the beginning. John 8:44

He told her that she would not die. He told her that God knew that if she ate the fruit, her eyes would be opened and she would be like God, knowing good and evil. Genesis 3:1 and 3:4

Eve’s temptation. Eve was enticed by lust... for food, pretty things and personal gain. She saw that the fruit was good to eat and was attractive. She believed that it would give her wisdom. Genesis 3:6

She decided to believe the serpent and value her own desires above the command of her Creator. She ate some of the fruit and then gave it to Adam for he was there with her.

Eve's sin led to harsh consequences. Turn to the next page to read about her life after the garden and the lesson's we can learn from her.
