Recently I started telling BP THE story. If I try to tell her a different one she says: No, sin story. Here is what I typically tell her.
Once upon a time there was: Nothing. Except God. Because He always was, always is, and always will be. He decided to create the earth – and the sun – and the moon – and the stars – and the grass – and the trees – and the flowers…
One day, He created Adam. Later He had Adam fall asleep and He took one of Adam’s ribs and created Eve. They had a wonderful relationship with God.
But one day Eve did something wrong. She sinned. She ate something God told her not to. Adam sinned too. Because of this sin they no longer had a relationship with God. And because of our sin we don’t have a right relationship with God either.
God didn’t like that, so He sent His Son to die on the cross for our sin. Jesus (God’s Son) was buried and 3 days later he rose again.
Because Jesus did this we can have a right relationship with God.
*The story usually goes like that. Sometimes I ask questions and she fills in the blanks.
Last night we went through the story and that was that. Until a few minutes later…
BP: *Puts purse on her shoulder and says – Bye, I’m going.
HP: Where are you going?
BP: To the store.
HP: What store?
BP: Names a local store.
HP: What do we need at the store?
BP: Food, for Adam, so he don’t sin no more.
Well, that should solve that problem. 😉
