Genesis 3:9 - Not Religion but Relationship.

Genesis 3:9 (NKJV) Then the LORD God called 
to Adam and said to him, "Where are you?" 


These verses show God's desire to have 
fellowship with us. They also show why we are afraid to 
have fellowship with him. Adam and Eve hid from 
God when they heard him approaching. God wanted 
to be with them, but because of their sin, they 
were afraid to show themselves. Sin had broken 
their close relationship with God, just as it has 
broken ours. But Jesus Christ, God's Son, opens the 
way for us to renew our fellowship with him. God 
longs to be with us. He actively offers us his 
unconditional love. Our natural response is fear because 
we feel we can't live up to his standards. But 
understanding that he loves us, regardless of our faults, 
can help remove that dread. [Life Application 


   Telecommunications have changed our 
world. Now there are few instances when anyone is 
disconnected. But sometimes phone reception is difficult. 
It is not unusual for a call to be dropped or 
interrupted because of interference. Often people nearly 
scream into the phone, "Can you hear me?" A reply 
comes back, "I can hear you. Can you hear me?" 
It's sometimes a comical exchange. 
   Sometimes the same happens when we try to 
communicate with God. It certainly happened to Eve. The 
first question God asked Eve was, "What is this 
you have done?" (Genesis 3:13). If Eve had had a 
mobile phone, she may have suggested there was 
interference on the line. 
   But there is nothing humorous about 
broken communication with the Lord. When it 
happens, I can assure you that we are the 
interference - not Him. Sometimes we don't want to hear 
what He has to say because we already know what 
the Word of God has told us. But we must not let 
anything keep us from communicating daily with God. 
Not only does He want to communicate with us, He 
also wants to hear from us. 
   Have you allowed interference to separate 
you from the Lord? [Peace for Each Day by Billy
