The Adam Who Did Not Hide

12 Dec

“In Gethsemane it was never a question whether the Saviour would obey or disobey. In Eden God asked, ‘Adam, where are you?’ In a sense the question was repeated in Gethsemane and this Adam did not try to hide; he had no need to; his whole response was clearly, ‘Here am I!’ Willingly and voluntarily the good shepherd laid down his life for the sheep.”
