“Turn Down for What?!”

Adam and Eve gave up fellowship with God and earthly dominion for one piece of fruit (Genesis 1:26).

Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew they were naked… Genesis 3:7

Esau gave up his birthright for a bowl of soup.  Genesis 25:29-33

Look, I am about to die; so what is this birthright to me?”  Genesis 25:32

Samson gave up being set apart for God’s glory for the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (Judges 13-16, 1 John 2:16).

 I have been a Nazirite to God from my mother’s womb…but he did not know that the LORD had departed from him.  Judges 16:17, 20

Why give up the glorious for the common?
