Gloria (Our Savior Found Us)

Genesis 3:8-13

The Bible is full of descriptions of sin, and wherever it does, there’s often a lot to read on the subject of separation. Sin has a way of doing that to us; leaving us cut adrift from God.

Here in this passage in Genesis we find the first - but not the last - of the Bible's depictions of sin. Eve eats a piece of fruit and disobeys God. And it’s the fallout that reveals so much.

The serpent achieves his aim of bringing about a separation between man and God. It worked, nearly. But not quite.

Look again at the passage and recreate in your own mind that bit where God walks about the garden. So holy is God, that Adam and Eve are no longer allowed to be within strolling distance, for God cannot have sin around. It's not that he doesn't like it, not that is makes Him awkward and uncomfortable. God cannot have it around, and sin cannot be around Him.

But even that is not the end of the story, for God does something remarkable. He calls out. Yes, God knows full well where Adam is, but still God calls out. Why? Because He wants Adam to know that He’s looking. Why is He even in the garden in the first place? Because He’s looking for Adam. Because He wants to put things right.

All of us have times when we hide from God. And we have times when we seek Him too. But whether we’re running away from Him or running towards, no matter how great the darkness, God’s posture towards us never changes. He seeks us out. He won’t ever relent.

Your Name by Paul Baloche - Song Devotional

One of the most awesome and powerful responsibilities of parents is the naming of their children. What a privilege! A child’s personality, gifts, talents, achievements, relationships and more will come to be bound up with his or her name. In fact, names become a sort of “shorthand” for all the things that make us who we are. So, who gets to name God?

Praise Your Name - Corey Voss & Madison Street Worship - Song Story

The first time I ever really admitted I was depressed, I was a freshmen in college. Poetically, it was raining outside. Weak and alone, I humbly whispered to myself, “I think I’m depressed.” It’s is a nasty monster. It locked...
