Where are you? | Genesis 3:8-13

It is hard to exaggerate the unmerited grace the Lord brings to Adam and Eve after they had grievously sinned by rebelling against God’s command not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. However, even with our Lord’s enquiring question and patient examination Adam and Eve fail in their willingness to confess their sin without blame or deflection. Our passage highlights the gracious approach of our Lord and our forefathers’ resistance to coming clean. In this study we learn that God calls us to willingly confess our sins and not attempt to excuse ourselves.

  1. It is a sinner’s habit to hide from God (v. 8)
  2. It is God’s gracious habit to seek the sinner (v. 9-10)
  3. It is God’s gracious habit to extract a confession (v. 11)
  4. It is the sinner’s habit to deflect blame (vv. 12-13)
