Main thoughts of the sermon message: 1. The Lord often asks us questions to engage us because we are not where we should be, or not doing what we should be doing. a. After Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden the Lord called to him as he walked through the Garden in the cool of the day, “Where are you.” Although God knew where Adam was the Lord still began with a question. 2. When God tests His children, His purpose is to prove that our faith is real. a. Not that God doesn’t know, but he wants us to know. b. For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. Romans 8:14. c. Psalm 119:105 it says, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” d. Through his word and His Holy Spirit the Lord will guide us through our life. 3. When I fail, the Lord calls me to the cross to ask him…will you forgive me. a. Each day we live, we sin, and in many ways, we fail. We try to cover it up thinking it is not all that bad, but the next day we fail again and the Lord convicts us of our sin and we again find ourselves at the foot of the cross.
