When Adam was first created, God only gave him one command. He was not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Gen. 2:17). Notice, God didn’t give Adam an excessive amount of rules like He gave to Moses. More than rules, God desired a relationship with him. He wanted to walk and talk with Adam. God wanted Adam to go to Him if he had any questions. God’s original plan for man was relationship, not rules.

When sin entered the earth, God had to implement rules in order for mankind to survive. Jesus fulfilled those rules and now we have a chance to operate in relationship with God.

It’s not about religious rules. That brings bondage. Go back to the original plan. It’s about walking and talking with God throughout the day and letting Him lead us by His Spirit. It’s about knowing our sins have been paid for and we’re in Christ. Have a relationship, not rules.

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.
Genesis 2:7 NKJV
