The Drawing of the Holy Spirit

And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.” Genesis 2:25


Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loincloths. And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. But the Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?” Genesis 3:7-9


In Genesis chapters 2 & 3 we see where God created Adam and Eve and we also see that God set specific boundaries on what they can and cannot do. Then, we find they are tempted and ignore His instruction and not only touch the tree of knowledge of good and evil, but they ate of it. 


God does the same thing for our lives. In the Bible He clearly tells us what we can and cannot do, setting specific boundaries for us to follow. He has done this not to be a cruel controlling God, but He does this because He wants to protect us from the results of sin, which can ultimately lead to death. 


In Genesis 2:25 before Adam and Even sinned against God, they did not have any shame, but in Genesis 3:7,8 they experienced shame for the first time and they actually hid from God. However, in verse 9, we see that even in their sin God called to them. He sought them out even though they were trying to hide from Him. Sin will keep us “hiding” from God because of the shame we feel, but God is quick to forgive and full of mercy and will draw us back to Him. All we have to do is answer His call. Don’t resist His loving arms drawing you back in.
