We are going to learn something cool about God today. The story of Adam and Eve might be known to you, but it is more meaningful to you than you could ever know. For example, did you know that God performed the very first surgery?
God is the best surgeon and physician
The first surgical procedure was long have been recorded in the pages of your Bible. We read Genesis 2:21:
“And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place.”
God, the author of our life and the master designer of our biological makeup, perfectly knew how to perform the surgical removal of Adam’s rib.
This shows us that God has the perfect and complete knowledge of how our bodies function, from the smallest cell to the biggest organ. Thus, it is not difficult to see why we are encouraged to ask God for healing every time we are sick.
Why Did Eve Do It?
What was one of the reasons that Eve took the forbidden fruit and eat? We read in Genesis 3:6:
“So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate.”
Because of the appealing appearance of the fruit and its promise of supposed wisdom, Eve became covetous. From there, she entertained the covetous thought to the point that it gave birth to bigger sins.
That’s how dangerous covetousness is. Sin should be stopped right before we think about it. The Tenth Commandment, “Thou shalt not covet” is something that is very unique among the Ten Commandments. Covetousness starts with the mind. It is something that is actually not yet being done. It is just in your mind waiting to be fulfilled by your actions. And yet, the Bible tells us that even the very thought of coveting is a sin!
