OH, TO WALK WITH GOD

(Genesis 3:8-11) 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.  But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?”  He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.”  And he said, “Who told you that you were naked?  Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?”

We were never meant to walk alone.  We were designed to walk with God.  In the beginning, Adam and Eve walked with God, but they fell into sin and that changed the innocent life that they were given.  Sin separated them and subsequently the rest of us from God, but he has provided a way back.

(John 3:16)  For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 

God, through Jesus, provided a way for us to again walk with him.  God is just, so he gave his son that justice might be served.  Jesus died on the cross to take our place and bring justice to our sin problem.  Jesus opened up the path for our forgiveness that we might again walk with our God.

God is very excited for us to join him.  Go ahead and step into the way that he has provided for your return.  Surrender your self-will to his will.  He is trustworthy, and he loves you dearly.  God will be delighted when you return to him.
