The Fallout


I want us to see this morning just what was lost. Immediately after they took of the forbidden fruit, everything changed. Before the fall there was no shame. Shame is the result of guilt and guilt only comes through disobedience. Their eyes were opened to disobedience and the consequences thereof. God created them and placed a protective covering over them. While they could see the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and they could see the fruit, they were not exposed to its consequences. Only in disobedience were their eyes opened to the ugly world of sin and their guilt brought them shame. I don’t think they were ashamed of their bodies, but for the first time they felt completely exposed before the Lord. For all believers, this is want happens when our sin is exposed. We don’t want to be seen.
