ADAM & EVE, CHRIST & ME
Genesis 2:15-25, I Timothy 2:13,14, Ephesians 5:25
Our theme today is LOVE. Love is one of the most powerful
forces in the world. My goal is to help us have a new
appreciation of the LOVE Adam had for Eve and the Sacrificial LOVE
Jesus has for us.
The Bible says "Adam was not deceived, but the woman being dececived,
FELL into transgression" I Tim. 2:14 and "Adam who is a type of Him (Jesus)
Who was to come...." Romans 5:14 NKJV
I am using the words to the gospel song "HE FELL IN LOVE" to hang
our thoughts on and as an outline today. (Sung by the Inspirations Quartet
from Bryson City, N.C.) Note the dual meanings and applications and the
play on words.
HE FELL IN LOVE
Together they walked in the garden alone
Adam and his lovely wife,
Satan came seeking their souls to devour,
Temptation robbed Eve of her life.
He saw she was fallen and could not return,
He prays to the Father above,
Though he was not tempted to sin as she was
Adam fell heart first in love.
He fell in love with Eve,
He took her depravity,
Love moved him to pay the price,
Love drove him from paradise.
He loved her enough to die,
True love was the reason why,
Though falling would cost his blood
HE FELL IN LOVE
Together they lived in eternity past,
They needed nothing from me.
Sin held me bound needing One to come down,
To suffer and set my soul free.
The Savior left Heaven to take up His cross
Sinís poison became His cup,
Though He knew to drink it would mean He must die
Jesus fell for me in love.
He fell in love with me,
He took my depravity.
Love moved Him to pay the price,
Love drove Him from paradise.
He loved me enough to die,
True love was the reason why
Though falling would cost His blood
HE FELL IN LOVE
I. ADAM - HE FELL IN LOVE Genesis2:15-25
"Together they walked in the garden alone Adam and his lovely wife"
Gen. 2:15-25 (comment as you go)
Vs.15 Garden of Eden He had a perfect environment, paradise; it was heaven on earth.
But something was missing!
Vs.15 Tend and dress it He had a great job, it was rewarding and fulfilling (and there were no
thorns yet). But, something was missing!
Vss.16-17 He had plenty - Had Freedom - Had Fellowship with God Adam was innocent and
he had only 1 restriction or law, not to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. But,
something was missing!
Vss19-20A He had INTELLIGENCE He had proper self-esteem. He was not a dumb cave-
man. He named every creature. (Can the evolutionist?) But, something was missing!
Then, Adam no doubt thought,"Something is a matter with this picture - all of Godís creatures
have a mate but me."
Vs 2:20B But for Adam there ws not found a helper comparable to him.
Vs. 2:18 For the first time God says something was not good - that is for man to be alone.
Vs. 2:21-22 Eve Formed From a Rib
She was not formed from his foot (to walk on her), or from his head (to rule over him),
but from his rib, his side, equal but different, from his side next to his heart to love and
Vs2:22 GOD "MADE" Literally "Built"
Vs. 2:23 Adam said, "WO - MAN" sheís built" and Adam fell heart-first in love!
Now, nothing was missing!
Vs.2:23 SHE = God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.
Vs.2:24 WIFE = Singular, not
