BUILDING A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

“So the Lord God banished them from the Garden of Eden, and He sent Adam out to cultivate the ground from which he had been made.”  (Genesis 3:23 NLT)

This is how Adam and Eve broke their relationship with God: (1) They became convinced their way was better than God’s way; (2) they became self-conscious and hid; (3) they tried to excuse and defend themselves.

To build a relationship with God we must reverse those steps: (1) We must drop our excuses and self-defenses; (2) we must stop trying to hide from God; (3) we must become convinced that God’s way is better than our way.

-- from The Life Application Study Bible
