*SUNDAY, 14 AUG 2022*

“They heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day” (Gen 3:8).

Though man had committed sin, God’s love for him had not changed. Had He not loved man, He would not have come again to the garden to visit them. If His intention was only to punish him and put him out, He could have done that well enough by sending a single angel.

The word for ‘Walking’ in the original means, walking in the habitual way. So God was visiting His children in His habitual way. He did not come flying or running, as we often do when we want to punish our children for doing something naughty. What an example He has set for us!

“In the cool of the day” – The word for ‘Cool’, in the original, also means ‘wind’. Yes, there might have been a cool wind while God was walking. God brings with Him a cool wind. Sin makes man restless. He therefore needs comfort. Hence God might have come ‘in the cool of the day’ to comfort man in his distress.

When someone has done wrong and needs to be reproved or punished, before dealing with him, check your heart for any trace of anger or resentment. Let us not do anything in the heat of our temper. God does nothing rashly, and so shouldn’t we.

A right word spoken at the wrong time is wrong; a right thing done at the wrong time or in the wrong way is wrong.

Romans 8:22-32 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. Amen

Let us pray: Heavenly Father we praise you and give all glory to you Lord. Thank you for sending your son Jesus Christ to save us from hell punishment. Thank you Jesus Christ for taking my sin punishment on the cross and sheded your Holy blood to make me worthy to enter your kingdom of heaven. I ask forgiveness for all the sin I have done in the name of Jesus Christ. Thank you Holy Spirit, help me to believe God’s word and help me to obey accordingly. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen
