Adam, the “first” created son of the Father, lost the beauty of living in the garden because of His disobedience. Jesus, the only uncreated Son of God and eternal Word made flesh, has restored all humanity to paradise because of His love and obedience to the Father. His works of restoration and salvation are from His Father who sent Him (Jn. 5:33-36). As a people of faith, do we reveal our love for the Lord by obeying His commands?
Loving Father, You bless us with every good gift so that we can praise You with our lips and love You with our hearts. May our obedient response to Your word lead us to heaven. Amen.
