创世记3: 6-10
躲避神
"那人(亚当)和他妻子(夏娃)听见神的声音, 就藏在园里的树木中, 躲避耶和华神的面。" 创3: 8

  年少时, 我曾经不小心弄坏家中的车子, 虽然情况不算太严重, 只是一个车尾灯破了, 但我非常惭愧, 想隐藏自己的过犯。

  其实, 我们有时也有这个"想隐藏自己过犯"的念头, 不是吗?

  由创世开始, 神就在园中行走, 想与亚当和夏娃相交, 但今天的经文告诉我们, 他们躲避神, 到底发生了什么事呢? 他们为何要躲避耶和华呢? 答案很简单∶他们违背了神的命令, 因而感到羞愧。

  罪就是不顺服, 而罪的结果就是与神隔绝。不顺服会在我们和我们的造物主之间, 筑起了一道厚厚的围墙。因着罪, 我们害怕, 于是躲避神。说起来, 我们每个人都从我们的始祖身上遗传了不顺服神的倾向; 又因他们所犯的罪, 令我们无法活出神起初要我们过的生活。

  然而, 神依然渴望和我们相交, 天天与我们同行! 祂的渴望是那么强烈, 以致祂愿意不惜一切, 去恢复那被我们破坏的关系。天父藉着祂的儿子耶稣基督, 付出了额外的恩典代价, 好叫我们能重投祂的怀抱。

  今日, 你与主同行的生活如何呢?

祷告

神啊, 当日我们的始祖不顺服祢, 今天我们也一样 —— 而且是一次又一次, 求祢赦免。求祢因着祢的恩典寻找我们, 带领我们重新与祢相交, 并叫我们时刻顺服祢。奉耶稣的名求, 阿们。

hiding from god 躲避神
"[Adam and Eve] hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden." —Genesis 3:8 "那人(亚当)和他妻子(夏娃)听见神的声音, 就藏在园里的树木中, 躲避耶和华神的面。" 创3: 8

When I was a teenager, I accidentally damaged the family car. Nothing too serious—a broken taillight—but I was so ashamed that I tried to hide what I had done wrong.

We all try to do that sometimes, don't we?

From the beginning, God walked in the garden to have fellowship with Adam and Eve. Today's passage tells us they hid from God. What was going on? Why did they want to hide from the Lord? The answer is simple: as we learned from yesterday's reading, they had disobeyed God and were ashamed.

Sin is disobedience, and the result of sin is separation from God. Disobedience builds a wall between us and our Creator. Because of sin, we are afraid and hide ourselves from him. We inherited this tendency to disobey God from our first parents. Because of their sin, we are unable to live the way God wants us to.

Yet God still wants to have fellowship with us and to walk with us each day! He wants that walk so deeply that he went to extraordinary lengths to restore what we had broken. In his Son, Jesus Christ, the Father will go the extra grace-filled mile to bring us back to his side.

How's it going in your walk with the Lord?

Prayer 禱告

God, our first parents disobeyed you, and so do we—again and again. Seek us out by your grace and bring us back into fellowship with you. Help us to obey you always. In Jesus, Amen.
