Isolation is Preparation for Rebellion

Rebellion, like running away from covenants, commitments, and obligations, has no remedy without repentance and restitution.
Definition of repentance: "A sincere turning away, in both the mind and heart, from self to God. Changing one's mind."
Definition of restitution: "A making good of or giving an equivalent for some injury caused to affected persons."
Stay in covenant. Live in community. Stay connected. Be submitted to authority. Cast no blame. Take responsibility. Make no excuses for disobedience.
Walk in love always!
Keep it Simple

God gave Adam and Eve simple instructions. The devil's craftiness made them feel discontented when they should have been perfectly content.
This is a very common trap, even until this day. People can be corrupted from simplicity in Christ, and become addicted to unnecessary complexity. This leads to a loss of peace, joy and forfeiture of position (Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden). Said another way; people become carnal, petty, and "flaky."
Don't go there! KEEP IT SIMPLE!
In John Chapter 15, Jesus said we are like "branches" connected to a grapevine. The natural growth pattern of vines is complex and confusing. Vines (and people) need a "vinedresser" to purge and prune the branches. This keeps the vine (and people) simple and fruitful.
Three keys to simplicity and fruitfulness:
1. Follow instructions from the Vinedresser (Jesus) and His “associates” (pastors, elders, etc)
2. Put first things first. Seek first the Kingdom of God (Matt. 6:33)
3. Do your best. Doing less will require more effort to correct mistakes.
Feeling Cut Lately?
Jesus said in John 15:1-2, “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit."

Like vines in the vineyard, everybody and everything gets cut by God. There is the cut of purging, and there is the cut of pruning. Purging cuts out the bad stuff. Pruning cuts the good stuff to make it better and more fruitful. This cutting may feel bad, but it is good!
We don't want to look like this unkept vine:
