The Seeking God

“But rather than leave Adam and Eve to their shame, God mercifully seeks them out. God’s first words to them after their betrayal are not “What have you done?” but “Where are you?” (Gen. 3: 9). Where are you? That may be the best three-word summary of the Bible in the Bible. The whole rest of the book is the unfolding narrative of God’s relentless pursuit to restore humanity, now banished from God’s presence by the presence of our sin, to God’s original intent— unbroken, unhindered communion with him and with one another and with all creation.” -Rankin Wilbourne
