Our sins against God made it necessary for Christ to come into the world and bear our punishment for us.

KJV Text:

The section starts at about 0:0 and ends at about 2:29

     1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

     6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. 8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.

     9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? 10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

     11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? 12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. 13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

     14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: 15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 342 :
Chief of Sinners, Though I Be

— Organ Audio

1. Chief of sinners though I be, 
Jesus shed His blood for me; 
Died that I might live on high, 
Lived that I might never die, 
As the branch is to the vine, 
I am His, and He is mine. 

2. Oh, the height of Jesus’ love! 
Higher than the heavens above, 
Deeper than the depths of sea, 
Lasting as eternity. 
Love that found me–wondrous thought!– 
Found me when I sought Him not. 

3. Jesus only can impart 
Balm to heal the smitten heart; 
Peace that flows from sin forgiven, 
Joy that lifts the soul to heaven; 
Faith and hope to walk with God 
In the way that Enoch trod. 

4. Chief of sinner though I be, 
Christ is All in all to me; 
All my wants to Him are known, 
All my sorrows are His own. 
Safe with Him from earthly strife, 
He sustains the hidden life. 

5. O my Savior, help afford 
By Thy Spirit and Thy Word! 
When my wayward heart would stray, 
Keep me in the narrow way; 
Grace in time of need supply 
While I live and when I die.
