Walking with God (Genesis 3:1-8)Pastor Justin Pratt, February 5, 2017
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Adam and Eve had the privileged of walking and communing with God on a daily basis in the Garden of Eden. And they thew it all away for a piece of fruit.
While we may not be able to physically walk with God, we can still commune with Him on a daily basis. In fact, the idea of walking with God from Genesis doesn't necessarily mean physical walking. It means two way communication and fellowship.
So are you walking with God today? Do you read your Bible and spend time in prayer day in and day out? If not, you can change that today. Start by taking the first steps with Him!

1Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. 6And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 7And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. 8And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.
