But the Lord God called to the man and said
Where are you?
I had to take a moment and think about how this question relates to me. There was a time when I heard Him say “where are you?” and I am so grateful He came looking for me.
Really that is the story for all of us. We were separated from God, alone, afraid, and not sure how He felt about us. But not only did God come looking for us, He made a way for us to come back to Him. Without fear of punishment, lost but found, never again alone, welcomed into His house as His children.
The Spirit and the Bride say “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” Rev. 22:17
