Where are you?

“The Lord God called to Adam and said unto him, ‘Where are you?’” – Genesis 3:9.

“Where are you?” was God’s first words to the first sinner. – Rev. C. H. Spurgeon

Indeed, while God does not need us to enhance His existence, He willed to have us. He created us. Moreover, even before the foundation of the world, God foreknew that man would sin against Him. Hence, even before the foundation of the world, God was ready to pay a high price for our redemption — the Cross of Christ (Ephesians 1:4). What a righteous God, who at the same time, is a God of grace and love!

The question now to us, where are we today?

Where are we this moment in relation to God and His people?

Are we “lukewarm Christians?”

Are we paying attention to our spiritual growth (Hebrews 5:14)?

Are we honoring His command to serve others like Jesus did (Matthew 20:28)?

Where are we going?

How will we get there?

If we are not revering Him and working out our salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12), where do we think we are going?

Are we aware that there are no “lukewarm” Christians because Christians cannot be lukewarm (Revelation 3:16)? Lukewarm believers are just “believers,” not Christians. The Holy Spirit does not work in lukewarm counterfeits.

Our lives on earth are brief and short. On that Day, when the Spirit and the Bride/the Elect Church say, ‘Come’ (Revelation 22:17),” where will we be?

On that Day, are we going to get any invitation to enter, or being shut outside the door because the Lord does not know us (Matthew 25:12)?

How then shall we live today?
