And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.
What comes to mind when you think of worshipping God? Where do you meet with God? Where do you worship Him?
These are questions that have been debated for hundreds of years. Every culture has had a place or places set apart to worship God. It is important to remember however that it is God who takes the initiative in providing a way for man to meet with Him and to worship with Him. God throughout history has also taken the initiative in bringing man to the “right place” to worship Him. God placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden for a place and time of worship. He met with them in the cool of the morning. There was no building, no music, and no structure; just God meeting with man for worship.
Adam and Eve’s relationship with God was pure and unhindered. All that Adam did reflected the life and heart of worship. They were…
(1) Sensitive to the voice of God,
(2) Submissive to the will of God, and
(3) Obedient to the Word of God.
BTW, That is a good sermon outline for you preachers.
