Let’s take a quick look at what the serpent said to Eve. Pay attention, because he hasn’t really changed his tactics even after all these years. He said, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden?’” He knew what God had said, but he began his attack on the woman by twisting the truth, which is a way of introducing a lie in a way that begins to confuse. I have said it before, and I will say it again. We need to know that we know that we know what God has said. When we know the genuine article, it is easy to identify the lie, the counterfeit. And that is why God gave us His Word, so that we would know the truth. And so I commend you for your commitment to listen today, and I want to encourage you to be me every day as we read God’s word together.
