In Teen CBS this year, we are studying Genesis.
Although at first I thought, Genesis? Really? I've read Genesis countless times, I already know it all! But then, I thought, God will show me something in Genesis that I've never realized.
Guess what! It already happened in the 2nd chapter.
Genesis 2: 16-17
And the LORD God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die."
Ummm...WOW. God knew we would sin, obviously...but He is telling us that He knows, and that WHEN we eat of it, we'll surely die, not IF.
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."
Okay, So now...the Lord was walking in the garden with them (as he is always walking with us, whether we like it or not...He always knows what we are up to.) Then, they thought they could hide from God (as we think a lot). The Lord then called to Adam, even though it could have just walked over there, He wanted Adam to come to Him, and confess. Adam was afraid and hid, as we so often are, too.
Remember, no matter how much we want to, we can't hide from God..He's always watching you, and other people are watching you as a Christian.
