Devotion on Genesis 3 - The Second Sin

Sin alienates us from God and from others. Note how Adam and Eve hid from God and blamed each other for their mistake. Sin reverses the intended order of things. We should be in a loving relationship with God and others, not hiding from, blaming, being in enmity with, or feeling shame in regard to God and others.

When we do sin, there is only one way to put things back as they should be. We can admit our sin and ask forgiveness. This was Adam and Eve's second sin. They tried to pass off their sin instead of admitting it and asking forgiveness.

When have you tried to blame others, or blame circumstances, instead of owning up to your own mistakes? The way to holiness is to honestly acknowledge our sin for what it is, take responsibility for it, and sincerely repent of it.
