GOD MADE MAN UPRIGHT

OBSERVATION: THE WRITER, PERHAPS SOLOMON, CONCLUDES CHAPTER 7 WITH A TRUTHFUL REALITY: GOD MADE MAN UPRIGHT!

INTERPRETATION:

ECCLESIASTES 7:29 (NKJV) TRULY, HIS ONLY I HAVE FOUND: THAT GOD MADE MAN UPRIGHT, BUT THEY HAVE SOUGHT OUT MANY SCHEMES.

ECCLESIASTES 7: 29 (THE BOOK) I DISCOVERED THAT GOD CREATED PEOPLE TO BE UPRIGHT, BUT THEY HAVE EACH TURNED TO FOLLOW THEIR OWN DOWNWARD PATH.

GOD FORMED ADAM AND EVE WITH A PURE, INNOCENT HEART IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN. HE PLACED THEM IN A PARADISE TO CARE FOR ALL HE CREATED (REF: GENESIS 1: 26-31).

THE OLD SERPENT, SATAN, WAS IN THE GARDEN PARADISE ALSO. THROUGH HIS DECEPTIVE SPEECH, BOTH ADAM AND EVE ACQUIRED A SINFUL NATURE AND GOD CAST THEM OUT OF EDEN. THIS SINFUL NATURE PASSED ONTO ALL MANKIND (GENESIS 3: 15). DISAPPOINTMENT ALWAYS FOLLOWS DISOBEDIENCE!

WHAT LESSONS CAN YOU LEARN FROM THIS FALL?

THE FALLACY OF LESSONING THE IMPACT OF YOUR LOST CONDITION. MANY MAY DISPLAY CHARACTER QUALITIES THAT ARE COMMENDABLE AND LOVELY. HOWEVER, THEY ARE STILL LOST! ANOTHER FALLACY IS BLAMING GOD FOR YOUR LOST CONDITION. ANOTHER FALLACY IS THE NOTION YOU CAN REMEDIATE YOUR LOST CONDITION ON YOUR OWN. YET ANOTHER FALLACY IS COMPARING YOUR FOLLY AGAINST GOD’S WISDOM. ONLY CHRIST CAN RESTORE YOUR LOST CONDITION!

APPLICATION: GOD MADE MAN UPRIGHT. SINCE FUTILITY WAS NOT THE FIRST WORD ABOUT OUR WORLD, IT NO LONGER HAS TO BE THE LAST (KIDNER). SALVATION THROUGH JESUS CHRIST IS THE ANSWER (JOHN 3:16-17).
