PASTOR'S CORNER

from Pastor Jay Lee

But the LORD God called to the man and said to him, "Where are you?" Genesis 3:9

In the Garden of Eden, after Adam and Eve had disobeyed God's command, we witness a moment that speaks volumes about God's character and His relationship with His creation. God, who is all-knowing, asks Adam, "Where are you?" This question isn't born out of ignorance but out of deep love and a desire to restore what was broken.

God's question represents more than just a call in the cool of the day; it is the Creator seeking His creation, now defiled by sin. Despite their disobedience, God reaches out to Adam and Eve. He does not abandon them to their guilt and shame but initiates a conversation, showing His relentless love and intention to restore the broken relationship.

When God asks, "Where are you?" it is a question that pierces the heart. It is an invitation to come out of hiding, face the reality of our sin, and begin the journey toward redemption. It demonstrates that God's love remains unwavering even in our fallen state. He longs for us to return to Him, to be restored, and to walk in fellowship with Him once more.

This question is relevant in our lives today. In our moments of failure, shame, and fear, God still asks, "Where are you?" He seeks us out, not to condemn, but to restore. His love compels Him to pursue us, offering forgiveness and reconciliation through Jesus Christ.

Dear Church, how would you answer God's question, "Where are you?" Are there areas of your life where you are hiding from God, burdened by guilt or fear? Are you avoiding His presence because of mistakes or shortcomings? God's call to Adam reminds us that we can always come to Him. He is not waiting to punish but to heal and restore. 

As we journey through life's challenges, let us remember that God is always seeking us, calling us back to Him, and inviting us into a deeper relationship. May we have the courage to answer Him, knowing that His arms are open wide, ready to embrace us and bring us home.
