TEACHING NOTES

HOW WE GOT HERE  //  PT. 3: WHERE IT ALL WENT WRONG
October 18, 2020



GENESIS 3:1-8, 14-15
 
Sin always involves believing a _____________________.


 

Five Lies That Broke Paradise:

1.  Did God ______________________ say that?
 
  • “Did God really say…?” (Genesis 3:1a, NIV)

2.  ______________________  Scripture.
  • “You must not eat from any tree...” (Genesis 3:1b, NIV)

3.  There are no ______________________. 

  • “You will not certainly die.” (Genesis 3:4, NIV)

4.  God is keeping _____________________ things from you.

  • “God knows...you will be like God…” (Genesis 3:5, NIV)

5.  You can be your own  _____________________.
  • “...she took some and ate it.” “...he also ate it.” (Genesis 3:6, NIV)

 
Lies Break Everything:

1.  God: _____________________ (Gen. 3:8-10 compared to 1:26-27)

2.  Nature:  _____________________ (Gen. 3:17-19 compared to 2:15)

3.  Others:  _____________________ (Gen. 3:12-13 compared to 2:23)

4.  Ourselves:  _____________________ (Gen. 3:7 compared to 2:25)

 
Genesis 3:15, “...he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”
 

COMMUNION DISCUSSION: Communion reminds us that the price of our sin is death. But God, through Jesus, loved us so much that he paid the price.

1.  What lie am I tempted to believe right now? What is the price for believing it?

2.  What truth about God, others, or myself do I need to believe?

3.  Pray: Confess your sins to God. Give your guilt to Jesus and receive his grace.
