Hiding

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

After God created Adam He came to the garden regularly to walk and talk with him. Adam was always ready for that time of fellowship where Father and creation would talk and share. Then Adam disobeyed God and hid in shame. God had to call for Adam for Adam was hiding from God. Our question is are we open and ready and eager to walk with God, to fellowship with Him or do we try to hide? Of course hiding is of no effect since God sees and knows all. We think we are hiding our sins of separation and disobedience from God when we are really trying to hide it from ourselves. We don’t like to admit we have sinned. We might admit we messed up or goofed but to say we sinned is hard. As we begin this new year let’s decide to call sin what it is, confess it quickly and move on with fellowshipping with God.
