100 Days of Preaching the Gospel #15 | with Daniel Whyte III

TEXT: Genesis 3:8-15

As we read this passage, it is easy for us to focus on Adam and Eve's sin and how God punished them by throwing them out of the Garden. But today, I want you to focus on God's immediate reaction to the Fall of Man.

When the news of the Fall reached Heaven, the very first thing that God did was come straight down to seek out those who had sinned against Him. Just as he had many times before, He walked through the Garden looking for Adam and Eve who should have come running to meet Him. Instead, Adam and Eve hid from God, and God had to search for His creatures. Imagine, God Almighty walking through a Garden that He made calling out for the creatures He made, "Adam, where art thou? Where art thou?"

Adam and Eve, who immediately felt their separation from God after their sin, should have been the ones crying out for God and searching for Him. But God instead left Heaven to search the Garden for these two who had sinned -- not to destroy them from the face of the earth, but to plan a way to rescue them from the misery of their sin. Instead of finding them running to Him in penitence and repentance, God finds Adam and Eve hiding among the trees in the Garden.
