What God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit endeavored to do in the Garden of Eden has come full circle.

It wasn’t that God made a mistake in the garden and just corrected it.

No, he brought to himself created beings who withstood the evil and temptations of this sinful world to truly love him with all their hearts in spite of the allurements of this present world.

These are the people he fulfilled all the promises of God through

Those that love Christ and freely chose to love and serve him are greater servants of God than Adam and Eve before the fall.

In order to truly love someone we must go through the test, trials, heartaches, and pain to come forth shining in faith and in trust in the God of heaven.

True love will do whatever it takes, give up whatever is required to go the extra mile.Richard W. Wafford
