Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden.
But the LORD God called to the man, “Where are you?”
– Genesis 3:8-9
A while ago, I was thinking about this situation: Adam and Eve had just committed the first sin, and in their nakedness and shame, they hid from God. Much like how we feel after we sin – it’s this separation from God, this guilt and shame that hangs over our shoulders like a wet coat.
What I found interesting, was that after the first sin was committed, God came looking for them.
“Adam…where are you?”
Grace & Peace,
