Scriptures Alone! Grace Alone! Christ Alone!

Genesis 3:9 “And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?”

Adam was not seeking God. God is always the one who comes to seek and to save his lost child. He makes us confess our sins like God made Adam confess his transgression.

Sinner, where are you this hour? You have sinned against God. Are you hiding in some fig leaves you have made? God makes his child confess our sins, especially the sins of our so-called righteousness. God strips away all our fig leaves and brings us to rest all in Christ. Through God’s gift of faith, he clothes us in the righteousness of Christ. We see it in type, “Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them” (Genesis 3:21).

Notice, Adam sinned, God made a covering; Adam ran, God sought and found him; Adam blamed God and Eve, God brought him to confess his sin; Adam hid, God gave him faith; Adam was naked, God clothed him in the garments of one slain in his place. So it is with us. We did the sinning; God does the saving.
