"And when the woman (Eve) saw
that the tree was good for food,
and that it was pleasant to the eyes,
and a tree to be desired to make one wise,
she took of the fruit thereof and did eat,
and gave also unto her husband (Adam)
with her; and he did eat." (Genesis 3:6)
Something, Nothing and Everything
Three things fallen man looks for:
        The lust of the flesh - doing something
        The lust of the eyes - having something
        The pride of life - being something
        (Genesis 3:6, Matthew 4:1-10, Luke 4:1-13, 1 John 2:16)
But the believer is nothing, "For if a man think himself to be something , when he is nothing , he deceiveth himself."  (Galatians 6:3)
        Knows nothing, "And if any man think that he knoweth anything, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. (1 Corinthians 8:2)
        Can do nothing "Without Me ye can do nothing." (John 15:5)
        Apart from Christ Who is everything, "Christ is all and in all." 
(Colossians 3:11)
Glory to God!
