Genesis 3:17-19; Isaiah 59:2; Romans 1:22-23; 3:23; 5:12; 8:18-22; James 1:15
For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.
The world that God created was perfect and good. He created man and woman, Adam and Eve, and they were good and perfect. He gave them the Garden of Eden to be their home and provided them with everything they would ever need. Even though what they had was perfection, they disobeyed God. They chose to believe Satan’s lies and they ate the forbidden fruit. This broke God’s creation and caused every person born after them to have a sin nature.
Everything was perfect in the world until we broke it. When humanity chose to sin, the world that was once perfect became messed up and broken. Sin is ultimately a rejection of God Himself. Because of sin bad things happen, we experience all types of pain, and death has come into the world. All of creation groans and wishes that the world be perfect and good like it was before.
