You determine who or what is valuable in your life, not your spouse, your family, nor your friends. I tend to agree with the saying, “seven brothers, seven different minds.” Imagine two men with the same father, with the same privileges, who has access to everything the father owns, same power and authority, and the same choice to obey or disobey their fathers wishes. There are many things you just can’t blame the devil for, you have to blame yourself, and the greedy desires inside of you, that never gets satisfied.
Adam had everything to his hearts desire in the garden of Eden, and he didn’t even have to ask God for anything. God saw his need and supplied it; He realized that Adam was lonely and said it was not good so He made Eve. So the question is if he had everything, why did he desire more? It’s because of greed, and you can’t blame Eve, because he was the man in charge, and you can blame the devil because he must have had some knowledge of the devils downfall,or he should have inquire,because God never withhold information or anything from His children. The choice was his. To obey or disobey. Adam allowed his greed, lust, and thirst for things he did not need to manipulate his decision.
Now years later, Adam’s brother, named Jesus, came to rectify the problem. Jesus too had everything Adam had, the power, authority, and privileges, but when the devil offered him the same things he offered Adam, Jesus refused it, because His relationship with His Father (God) was more important than anything the devil had to offer Him. Jesus also knew that God His father owns everything, so it’s not for the devil to give, unless he stole it from someone (Adam). Jesus shows us that to obey God is better than sacrificing His love, protection, and guidance, more than the stolen goods the devil had to offer. So who or what is more valuable to you? God or the devil, Heaven or Hell, death or eternal life, like Adam and Jesus the choice is yours.
Are you so greedy that you would sacrifice God’s perfect gifts, for the devil’s stolen trinkets or borrowed goods which will not last forever. Matthew 16:26 says it best, “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Adam tried it and lost everything, and dragged us into this mess, but Jesus came and made it right,but we have to choose to follow Jesus which is not an easy road because the devil will be fighting to get you back, are you going to let the devil win? After Jesus already secured the victory and gave it to us.
Remember the devil was God’s best angel until he disobeyed and tried to take over. The devil was kicked out without any chance of returning, so he tricked Eve and Adam into thinking that disobeying God is fun, so they both and many others found out the hard way. Don’t let this happen to you follow Jesus’ example, which shows and proves that obeying God is better than sacrificing everything. Jesus is God’s gift to us, He is the only way to God, you will find it in John 14:6 where Jesus tells us that, He is the way, the truth, and the life and no one goes to God without going through Him. What is it why people refuse to accept Jesus? Is it too good to be true? or do you just choose to live for the devil, regardless of the consequences? But it is your life and it is also your choice.
