Genesis 2:15-17: Eden

Posted by adventbiblestudy on May 12, 2012


Genesis 2:15-17 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. (16) And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: (17) But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

 

After speaking everything into existence, God, Ruler of the universe worked the dust of the earth with His own hands to personally form man in His own image. When every detail was perfect, God breathed His breath of life into the nostrils He had formed. And man became a living soul.

 

Adam opened His eyes to a perfect world. God was not done giving. He planted a garden with the choicest plants, using the most beautiful colors and fragrances as a reminder of His love, a special gift for man. God took man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. God trusted man with every detail of His creation. It was a gift of love, with only one condition. The LORD God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”

 

Adam must have questioned what it was to die. All he had known was the total peace and joy of being with his Creator in the paradise made especially for him. Did Adam question what evil was, or was the warning enough to convince him it was something that would surely separate him from everything God provided?

 

When God put Adam in the garden and asked him to tend it, God confirmed the fact, He trusted Adam with everything He created. Man’s work was a bond of trust and reliance between the created being and the Creator for all eternity. When God spoke everything into existence, it showed God trusted him with His Word. The warning was given to Adam, along with the responsibility to follow God’s command. A trust and responsibility which was never meant to change.

 

As Adam gazed at the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, he did not think anything could ever come between him and God. Everything he needed was provided by God. All but one detail was prepared before God breathed His breath of life into him.
