Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”
God has given man and woman a remarkable place and a one of kind responsibility. Man and woman while subject to genetics and instincts were given the uniquely challenging capability of choice. Faith is a choice for all of God’s children, we have to choose to believe and trust in Him and His word. Faith is the essential principle of the kingdom of God. The fall of the human race began the moment they listened to satan’s insinuations, “Did God really say.” The recovery of the human race commences the moment the soul begins to trust its God. This is why Faith has been made indispensable to the reception of the gospel and the salvation of the soul. Faith is the gateway of prayer. There must be a believing recognition of God’s personal existence, and also of His goodness and graciousness and that He does hear and answer prayer.
