And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day.
A few simple words that paint such an amazing picture about God and His love for man. An awesome God taking the time in the cool of the day to be with the man He created. In Genesis 3:9 we are told that God called to Adam by saying “Where are you? and for the first time they didn’t come running! They didn’t come calling out to Him, full of laughter and smiles. The joy at His presence was missing; instead they were hiding behind trees, ashamed and afraid of Him. He has made a way, through the blood of His son, ‘Jesus Christ’ , so that we don’t have to be ashamed, to hide from His presence, or to live our lives afraid. He has made a way for us to come into His presence and spend time with Him. It’s His love to spend time with us.
John 3:16 tells us: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” He loves you!
