“This is why a man leaves his father and mother and bonds with his wife, and they become one flesh. Both the man and his wife were naked, yet felt no shame.” (Genesis 2:24-25)

Shame is a result of sin. God wanted to protect them not from wisdom but wanted to preserve their innocence and purity, only by remaining pure, they could enjoy God’s constant presence in their lives.

The rest you know, man sinned and God being pure and holy could not stay in fellowship with man any longer. However God’s love did not give up on man. As early as the day of the fall, He already had a plan to get man back to Him and restore them back to were they belong.

In Genesis 3:15, God stated “I will put hostility between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.”

God is clearly referring to the Son of Man, Jesus who was to come to defeat death and sin.

This is God’s awesome plan of salvation and who else is qualified to do this rather than the lamb of God who is without any spot or wrinkle?

Yes we all sinned and fell short from the glory of the Lord (Romans 3:23). Now it is up to us to whether accept God’s undeserved gift. He is well able and willing to restore you back to Him. Salvation has a name Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12) are you going to call on His Name, repent and turn from your old ways?
