Adam and Eve were never afraid of God and walked through life with peace in God’s presence, until they sinned. Then they became “self-aware” and hid even when God bid them to come . . . It was their own “awareness” that made them hide, not a change in their physical appearance or a change in the way God felt toward them. Jesus remedied that sin separation on the cross and we have the opportunity to walk with Him again, even closer than Adam and Eve. We don’t walk separate through the garden of life, we are one through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Grasping this oneness reality (reality if you’ve asked Jesus to dwell in you) is not easy to hang onto in our heads, because we naturally want to become “self-aware” when we go there. But God is teaching us through life to trust Him completely, lay our “self” and its frailties aside and be ONE. I really liked this today,
. . . it is never God’s will that we should be anything less than absolutely complete in Him. Anything that disturbs our rest in Him must be rectified at once . . . with Christ-awareness . . . Beware of anything that can split your oneness with Him, causing you to see yourself as separate from Him. —Oswald Chambers
So whimsical and so true. This is one is just plain fun, and yet profound.
