The Man and His Wife Were Both Naked and Felt... Shame?

Word of the Day

Well I first must confess that I am not on the same reading plan as the rest of our church is on, so I do apologize that these posts probably won't be from the same passages you are in.

This morning God used Genesis 3:7 to convict me of some specific "guilt" and remind me that in Him there is no condemnation. (Romans 8:1)

Genesis 3:7-8
7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings.
8 They heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.

In Genesis 2:25 it says Adam and Eve were not ashamed, and now after they had sinned they quickly felt condemnation/shame/guilt and hid from God (its probably like playing hide n go seek with a toddler). When confronted with our sin it should lead to repentance not hiding. Watch the Driscoll video, its good.

2 Corinthians 7:10
10 For the sorrow that is according to the will of God produces a repentance without regret, leading to salvation, but the sorrow of the world produces death.
