The serpent, Adam and Eve… and us!

In Genesis 3:1-7, we read abot the evil influence of “the serpent” (Satan – Revelation 12:9). Here, we must note the difference between temptation and sin. Satan tempted Adam and Eve. They sinned. They couldn’t blame Satan for their sin. Temptation only became sin when they gave into temptation. It’s the same with us. We are tempted, and we sin. The sin is our sin. We cannot blame someone else – even Satan. We dare not make excuses for ourselves. We must confess our sin. This is the way of receiving God’s forgiveness (1 John 1:9).
