When asked, what separates us from God, I think most would answer that it is our sin. This is most certainly true, but the answer to the next question is not so straight forward—why do we sin? Why did Lucifer, one of God’s most magnificent creatures, choose to defy God’s sovereignty? Why did Adam and Eve sin by choosing to believe a serpent rather than God? The Bible tells us that we have a sinful nature; what is the essence of that nature? Both Lucifer (the devil’s name before his fall) and man were created in a very high state. How could they have wanted more than what God had already given to them? What were they lacking? Man was created with authority over the entire creation of earth. His labor was pleasant, and he lacked nothing. He walked with God daily. There was no sickness, hardship, shortages, unhappiness, or death. What drove him to defy his all-loving, all-wise, all-powerful God? The dictionary defines rebellion as “opposition to one in authority or dominance”. Certainly that is what Satan and man have done. Discover the nature of our rebellion against God and God’s provision to restore our relationship.
