So Far This Week

Our study for this week took us back to the Eden environment. We learnt that the first man and woman were placed in the presence of God and they were to eternally enjoy a delightful fellowship with God. We understood the fact that we have been blessed to carry God’s presence in us (Holy Spirit). We also learnt that it is not enough to be a carrier of His presence but we need to be nurtured to grow.

This would only be possible if we remain obedient to God’s word, which would make us bear fruits manifesting in the character of Christ; who is the true vine. Protecting and taking care of the resources God has given man on earth and not letting any go to spoil would denote the keeping of the charge giving in Eden.

We also learnt that the tree of life and that of knowledge of good and evil stood for the character of God and that of the devil. Being enslaved by the deceit of the devil, man became spiritually insensitive hence the fall of man. The reigning sexual perversion was understood to be out of God’s standards and would only take a renewal of the mind by the God’s word to dominate over the schemes of the enemy.

Prayer Guide: May we keep God’s presence in our lives in the

midst of growing perversion.

Memory Verse For This Week:

Psalms 91:1-2 (ESV) – “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
