Eve's disobedience and subsequent banishment from the presence of God was an interruption in her destiny. But immediately following the first couple's fall, God implemented a plan that would restore them to their intended purpose.
Referring to God's promise of a Messiah in Gen. 3:15, Dr. Freda Lindsay wrote: "The woman, first scarred by sin, is selected to be the one first promised to become an instrument of God's redemptive working" (Spirit-Filled Life Bible).
This is a picture of restoration. In Jesus Christ, we recover our innocence and our ability to reproduce the life of God in others through Holy Spirit-anointed ministry.
