day no. 14,122: prideful aspiration vs humble condescension

Genesis 3:4-5
4 But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5 For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
The essence of sin is substituting oneself for God. The essence of salvation is God substituting Himself for us. The Fall was a product of prideful aspiration and the Cross was a product of humble condescension.
