My Teeth Marks Are On That Apple

Adam and Eve, sin, we all need Jesus
It's amazing how pervasive food is. Every second commercial is for food. Every second TV episode takes place around a meal. In the city, you can't go ten feet without seeing or smelling a restaurant… its omnipresence is astounding.
Adam Scott, The Monkey Chow Diaries, June 2006 

Food is an essential part of life, but it was also part of our spiritual death.

Satan told Eve that God was a liar--the forbidden fruit wouldn't hurt her. It would make her like God. (Genesis 3). So she ate it.
  • Instead of goodness, she ingested insecurity, guilt and suffering.
  • Instead of nourishing God's image in herself, she weakened it.
  • Instead of feeding on God's truth, she fed on Satan's lies.
Sadly, my teeth marks are on that "apple"* too…and so are yours.

But Christ redeemed us from that deadly bite and from every lie of Satan.
In every decision we make today, let’s bite into God’s Truth!

* Although we commonly refer to it as an apple, the forbidden fruit is not specified in Scripture other than coming from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil
