GENESIS 3:17-19

And to Adam he said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, ‘You shall not eat of it,’cursed is the ground because of you; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life; thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you; and you shall eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” 

The curse of sin is dire and grave. Work becomes painful, the earth itself becomes unruly, and death comes to all. The chain of sin throughout humanity’s history is undeniable and captures every soul without exception. No one escapes the curse. No one escapes death. Genesis 3 applies to everyone born into this world. But God provided the curse’s cure. He sent atonement in the form of a man. Jesus Christ came to this earth to conquer sin and death. And praise YAHWEH – Jesus was victorious! To all who believe in the power of Jesus’ death and resurrection comes freedom from sin’s bondage and hope for eternity!
