And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there He put the man whom He had formed. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth (Genesis 1:28, 2:8). This is the kind of living God wanted us to live. But after the fall of man into sin, God drove out the man from the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:24). Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned (Romans 5:12), and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).
But the Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance (2Peter 3:9 NIV). For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures (1Corinthians 15:3-4). Jesus earthly ministry was ended, when He was taken up into heaven (Acts 1:10-11). But He gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ; (Ephesians 4:11-12).
Jesus great commission is not finished yet, therefore go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19).
We are now living in the time of modern technology, with the use of televisions, computers and internet; we can be a part of fulfilling Jesus great commission through preaching the word of God all over the world.
