I found my mind wandering off while watching. Adam and Eve were naked--but not afraid. They lived among all the wild beasts in perfect harmony with no fear. As long as they were obedient and stayed away from the forbidden fruit, they had no shame--no consciousness of their nakedness. OH--but who could resist that which is denied--you can have it all--except this one tiny thing---BUT I want it too! I have to have it all--I NEED that apple. BAM fear entered the world.
Fear and shame --fraternal twins -born in quick succession after that first bite. Unleashed to roam an unsuspecting --innocent world --with a unquenchable thirst for the blood of the disobedient. The cloud of negative hovers over us waiting for our next transgression--our next slip--waiting to cover us in the dark haze of fear and shame. We hide behind our transparent cloak of disclaimers, but there is no protection for our sins are completely visible as we stand naked before The Father.
Thank God for His provision of the cloak of righteousness to cover us in grace. A cloak of great price---but freely given with great love and compassion. No need to be naked and afraid any longer--He wipes away all shame and calms all fears--if only we seek Him. Naked and afraid or wrapped in grace--the choice is ours.
He answered, "I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid."
