Eve's Story


I would love to visit your church or ladies Bible study group and share this design with them! One person will receive this design while the rest of the group will receive a small design that goes with the story. I don't charge for this service, but I do invite attendees to give a free-will offering to support this ministry.

One day while Adam and Eve were in the garden, Satan disguised himself as a snake so he could talk to Eve. He lied to Eve, which is what he does best. Satan is God's adversary, so since God is Truth, it makes sense why we call Satan "The Father of Lies." He told Eve that God didn't love her or care about her and that she knew better than God so she should eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. He said that eating from it would make her like God, which is kind of ironic since she was already made in God's image.

Once Adam and Eve ate the fruit, they were immediately ashamed, and for the first time in their lives, they hid from God. God saw their shame and even though He wasn't embarrassed, He was sensitive to their needs and provided clothes for them. God killed an animal to cover their shame. This would have been the first time Adam or Eve had ever witnessed death, the first time blood was ever spilled.

God is completely righteous, holy, and honorable. He is Truth. And by the perfection of His nature, He cannot be in communion with lies or sin. Sin is anything that is not holy, often these are actions we partake in because of a lie we have partnered with, just like Eve believed the lie that God didn't truly know best for her life or care about her, so she disobeyed Him by eating the fruit, which was sin.

Because of God's great love, He forced Adam and Eve from the garden. You see, there was another tree in the garden, the Tree of Life, which allowed Adam and Eve to live forever. God did not want this nightmare, this separation from His children and their broken relationship with each other, to last forever.

Do you see in the henna design that Adam and Eve and God are no longer smooshed together in perfect communion but are separated? But God had a plan, a plan to restore those relationships and life everlasting.

(A paraphrase of Genesis 3)
