Jesus and Our Hiding Places

Genesis 2:25 tells us that when God created Adam and Eve, they were "both naked and were not ashamed." They were both known and vulnerable without shame or fear. But once they sinned, they experienced shame in their nakedness, which led to fear, which led to hiding. And ever since then, shame has been a central element of the human condition, causing us to hide from God, one another, and even ourselves. But the Good News is that Jesus meets us in those very hiding places.
