As a young girl, I loved fairy tales since they always ended with, they lived happily ever after. Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden lived that life. They had everything that they would ever want in the most beautiful place on earth. They walked and talked with God. It was only when they sinned that shame, guilt and condemnation entered the world. I can’t even imagine the first time Adam and Eve felt the heaviness of sin upon them. The realization of their nakedness and the overwhelming fear of God.
That’s not the life that God wants for us. John 3:16-17 is definitely not a fairy tale but it ends with what we desire, a happy ending if we believe that Jesus is the son of God.
“God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son so that whoever believes in him may not be lost, but have eternal life.
God did not send his Son into the world to judge the world guilty, but to save the world through him.” John 3: 16-17 NCV
Jesus gave his life so that we can have eternal life with him, ￼❤️
