Walking in the Garden

Remember that scene in Genesis when God showed up in the garden ready to walk but Adam and Eve were hiding? They had been journeying with God—not just outwardly, but inwardly. And the great tragedy of their twisted choice was they didn’t want to walk anymore. It ended their forward movement. I think it’s vital we understand God is a walker. He walked with Adam and Eve. He walked with Enoch and Noah. He walked with James and John. And He wants to walk with us. His invitation endures, we’ve heard it a thousand times—follow me.
