Man has a lot of questions about and for God, but have you ever thought about the fact that God has some questions for us? The strange thing is that we ask questions because we don’t have the answers, we lack information, but God has all the answers–yet He asks questions. Why would the one who knows all ask poor ignorant souls such as we anything? He does so for our sake–that we might think and learn.
The very first question God asks man is found in Gen. 3:9 where He says to Adam, “Where art thou?” God, of course, knew exactly where he was, but Adam needed to think about it. He wanted Adam to come face to face with his spiritual condition, which wasn’t good. He was naked, afraid, and trying to hide from God. The Lord wanted Adam to understand what his disobedience had done to him, to see the consequences of his sin.
Now we could talk for hours about a great many other questions from God, but until we deal with this one it would be futile. Where are you? I’m not talking about your geographical location. I’m talking about your spiritual position, your relationship with God. This is something you can’t afford to be wrong about. Your eternal destiny is at stake. Since this is so serious we must not ignore it, guess at it, or rely upon others for the answer. You need the truth. It alone can set you free. Can you say beyond a shadow of a doubt that you have received the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? Is there evidence that you have done so? Many profess Christ without possessing Him. Claiming to be a Christian doesn’t make you one. As Jesus said, “ Ye must be born again” ( John 3:7). That is the only way you can “enter into the kingdom of God” (John 3:5). So, where are you? Have you received Christ? If not, why? —HDS
