All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” John 1:1-3, 14
“Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” Colossians 1:15-17

Oh, how much Adam and Eve must have enjoyed walking with Jesus in the cool of the evening. He probably took such pleasure in showing them the incredible things He had made for them to enjoy.
Sin has ruined this world. Soon Jesus is going to created a New Heaven and a New Earth where there will be no more sin. The New World will always be clean, fresh and picture perfect for us. Hard to believe, isn’t it?

You and I can be in that New World. It will be Eden restored, and most likely it will be even more beautiful than when our Lord first created the garden. Dear reader, ask Jesus to help you to be ready to walk with Him in the new Garden of Eden. He loves you and wants you with Him. It will bring us joy to see our family members and friends there, as well.
