The Garden

A thought came to me during my devotion this morning.

Man's defining moment was in the Garden of Eden.
Christ defining moment was in the Garden of Gethsemane.

God created mankind in his own image, but gave us a free will to serve Him or serve ourselves.

Everyday we are in the Garden making that choice, "whom will I serve today?"

Luke 4:8
And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written,
Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Deuteronomy 11:13
And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,

Genesis 2:15-16 (King James Version)

15And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

16And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

Gethsemane in the Bible: Matthew 26:36-46
As the hour of his death drew nearer, Jesus went with his disciples to pray in the garden of Gethsemane.
