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.

– Genesis 3:8 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

One of the first effects of the Fall of Adam and Eve was that they hid from God when He came near. That curse has followed us ever since. When the One who gave us life comes to look for us, you would think that we would run to Him, but we hide instead. Yet God’s mercy still calls to us. The Father sent Jesus Christ to find us so we could face the light of His love and He could take away the sin and shame that clouds our perception of ourselves and God. We can hear the sound of the LORD God again and be restored.
