WHERE ARE YOU?Genesis 3:8-9, “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?” Satan wants us to believe God was bellowing angrily as He stormed through the garden looking for “the man and his wife”. The truth is He wa leisurely walking through the garden, enjoying His creation, when He quizzically called out, “Where are you?” After all, it had been their daily routine since Creation. He knew what they had done yet He still wanted to walk with them.  He still wanted to enjoy their companionship. Was He angry? NO!! Most likely, He was saddened for He knew the relationship between them had changed forever and He knew it was necessary to discipline “the man and his wife”. There is a great lesson to be learned here. “The man and his wife” had committed the ultimate sin. God had told them they could enjoy the garden, do anthing they desired, but you must not “eat fruit from the tree in middle of the garden and you must not touch it…” At this point in time there was no greater sin.  Many of us believe that if God knew how we had lived, knew the many sins we had committed, knew the deep dark secret we’ve kept locked up deep down inside; He could not love us.  He would not desire to walk with us ever again. However, these verses show The Lord God does forgive us’ The Lord God does still love us. The truth is, even knowing “the man and his wife” had committed the ultimate sin, He still wanted to walk with them. The Lord God still returned to walk with them. The truth is: He knows how you have lived, He knows the sins you have committed, and He knows the deep dark secret you have locked up deep down inside, AND HE STILL LOVES YOU AND WANTS TO WALK WITH YOU!!  Do you hear the Lord God asking, “Where are you?”
