Evangelism: Calling Us Back
Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, "Where are you?" —Genesis 3:9
Although the human mind stubbornly resists and resents the suggestion that it is a sick, fallen planet upon which we ride, everything within our consciousness, our innermost spirit, confirms that the voice of God is sounding in this world—the voice of God calling, seeking, beckoning to lost men and women!...
Sacred revelation declares plainly that the inhabitants of the earth are lost. They are lost by a mighty calamitous visitation of woe which came upon them somewhere in that distant past and is still upon them.
But it also reveals a glorious fact—that this lost race has not been given up!
There is a divine voice that continues to call. It is the voice of the Creator, God, and it is entreating them.
Just as the shepherd went everywhere searching for his sheep, just as the woman in the parable went everywhere searching for her coins, so there is a divine search with many variations of the voice that entreats us, calling us back.... Echoes from Eden, 3,8.
"Thank You, Father, for Your grace that continues to call so patiently. Lord, You're calling some today with whom I could have the privilege of sharing the Gospel. Give me a sensitivity today to opportunities where I might be Your human voice. Amen."
