Back to the Beginning: Genesis

Today we read Genesis 3.
(Click on the link if you don’t have your Bible handy.)

But the Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?” Genesis 3:9

Interesting isn’t it? The omniscient (all-knowing), omnipresent (everywhere at the same time) God would ask the question: “Where are you?” Didn’t He know? Why ask a question when you already know the answer?
Perfect Adam living in a perfect garden fell from perfection with one bite. And since that moment God’s been asking man, “Where are you?” 
Have you considered lately where you are in relationship to Christ? Are you closer to God today than last week? last month? last year?

It is hard to know where you’re going when you don’t know where you are. 

What can you do today to draw near to God? Make your answer be today’s mission.

Father God, forgive me for the times I’ve hidden from You,
wandered from Your truth and from Your way.
Thank You for taking away my guilt and shame through Jesus,
so I no longer have to hide. I’m here, Lord. I want to be near You.

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace,
that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Hebrews 4:16 ESV
