Is He Enough?

Date: May 8, 2022 | Speaker:

God created a world to be enjoyed and filled by all creation. He fellowshipped with Adam and Eve every day, delighting most in their love for and dependence upon Him. However, Satan twisted the words and commands of God, and in so doing, deceived Adam and Eve into believing what God had provided, just wasn’t enough. As we look through key figures in God’s Word, we can see how the curse of sin is alive and well, wreaking havoc in the lives of God’s people; however, there are times the outcome of this great deception served as an agent of change for the unsuspecting… leading them to turn from their active rebellion against God and acknowledge, “He is Enough”.
