Where are you?

The saddest words in the Bible come in chapter 3 of Genesis. After they ate the forbidden fruit, Adam and Eve ‘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 ... But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?”’

Where are you?

Many people have been hiding from God for so long, they no longer recognise the sound of him walking near them. The loving Father’s voice falls on deaf ears.

Tonight I had the joy of listening to the testimonies of five young people who have decided to stop hiding. Each one shared the reason for his or her decision to be baptised and make a public declaration of their love for the Lord Jesus Christ. At least one had been baptised as a baby but felt compelled to share his adult faith. 

Gathered round the baptismal tank were the children, eager to watch the proceedings. Praying they all know Jesus as their Saviour and respond to the Father’s call, ‘Where are you?’ when the time is right.
Praying for friends and family, that they will hear the Father’s call and step out of the bushes.
