Paul Bickley speaks from Genesis 3.
Shame was one of the results of the fall – Adam and Eve become aware of the difference between them and a the Holy God. Human beings are endlessly creative in their attempts to ‘cover’ themselves, desperately hiding our sin and inadequacy.
We must allow God to clothes us. Faith in Jesus means that we can say, “Blessed are those – whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord will never count against them”.
