Welcome To A Brand New Life
Ken D. Trivette
1. Beginning in chapter 2, creation is behind us. The six days of creation are over. It is day seven and time and history are before us. God has created Adam and Eve and you could say this is the first day of the rest of their life. Adam and Eve are at least a day old and they are starting out literally on a brand new life.
2.
