un/QUALIFIED: Unlikely People God Uses - Part 4
“Why Are You Hiding?”
What drives us into hiding? Moments of our life that we wish we could un-live.
Adam & Eve
When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.
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?”
Genesis 3:6-11 (NIV)
The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them.
Genesis 3:21 (NIV)
Our Past will always remind us, but it does not have to define us.
