The following is from a sermon entitled, "How Sin Came In," on Genesis 3:1-15 by Alexander Maclaren
Sin always over-promises and under-delivers, but we so often still succumb to its seductions. Satan wants to draw you away from God. He wants to convince you that, because sin is pleasurable, it is good. He wants to convince you that you can sin without consequence. However, God's will is always good, and sin always has consequences. We have all fallen. We have all sinned against God. However, Jesus crushed the head of the serpent. He defeated the consequences of sin for those who faithfully turn from their sin to Him. Don't let Satan's schemes allow sin to gain a foothold in your life. Trust in God completely, and you will be more satisfied in Him than you would be with anything that sin can offer.
