“Where are you?” God asked as he came to talk with them and they hid. They were well aware they were not in a fit state to talk with their creator as freely as they had before. A barrier had been erected, a chasm which needed to be bridged for fellowship to be restored.
This question of the authority of God’s word still trips us up. “Did God really say?” becomes the trendy thing to ask. Learned theologians tear God’s word apart, chucking bits out with arrogance. Satan comes to us quietly and smoothly, planting doubt, sowing seeds of questioning. Can you really trust God? Did he really mean what he said, or do you think it might mean something else? What does everyone else think? Don’t you think you should follow the crowd, and embrace current thinking?
In his word God tells us the truth. Jesus came to be the sacrifice to bridge the chasm and to restore our fellowship with God. We need to know him and to know God’s word deep in our hearts so that we can say with confidence “Yes, God says it and I believe it.” We may not understand everything, but we can trust God and we can trust his word.
In this age of doubt when God and his word are being thrown out and discarded, we need to be ready with an answer to these questions. Yes, God said so. Where am I? I am in Christ and will be with him for eternity.
