Eden vs. Gethsemane

Max Lucado said, “In the first, Adam took the fall and in the second, Jesus took a stand!” As you know Sin began in the Garden of Eden but it was defeated in the Garden of Gethsemane. When man first said “My will, not Thine be done…” It opened the flood gate of sin and it turned man out of the Paradise of God. But when Jesus said “Not as I will, but as You will…” Victory was won over sin and access to the Tree of Life became possible to all of us sinners. At the end of the that day and at the beginning of the third day, Jesus’ resignation of His will prepared Him to go to the cross and to depart from that borrowed tomb victoriously!!
