Dear God-tracker

God-tracking is to walking with Father God in the cool of the day

I remember one warm evening, just as dusk had descended across the teal coloured sea, my son and I went for a walk. The beach was deserted except for an 11-year old boy and his dad. We spoke about many things. We spoke about school and about girls and about God and anything a father and son could talk about. After what seemed like ages my son turned to me and said, "Dad, thanks for chatting with me." We made our way back to our small holiday cottage to join the rest of the family for dinner.

As we walked back in silence, I remembered another time when a Father had walked and talked with his son. It happened many, many years ago in a very beautiful place called Eden. God had completed his mighty work of creating the universe, which culminated with the creation of man after his own image. He had made them man and woman - Adam and Eve and he loved them. He especially loved walking in the garden in the cool of the day just fellowshipping with Adam and Eve. I don't know what they talked about and I don't know whether the Almighty God revealed himself in the form of a man (perhaps the pre-incarnate Christ) but what I do know is God walked in the garden with his children. However, just a short while after creating man, Adam and Eve heeded the voice of temptation and chose to reject God's fellowship through disobedience. How sad it must have been for the Father of Love who loved the company of his children to discover one day that they simply no longer desired to walk with him in the cool of the day. They hid from God because of their naked sin.

Dear God Tracker, Father God desires your company in the cool of the day. In fact, the term "God Tracker" directly implies actively walking with God. Sin has separated us from God's company through the fall of man way back in Eden; and sin still separates us from him today. This is why Jesus, the sinless Son of God, needed to die on the cross. You see, the wages of sin is death and these wages need to be paid. Jesus paid the price; he died. However, we know that Christ did not stay dead, because we read that he rose again just three days after crucifixion. By believing this and confessing Jesus as Lord we can all come to know God's forgiveness and have sin's nakedness removed from our lives. By this, we can once again walk with Father in the cool of the day. Are you walking with God?

I remember the warmth in my heart as I opened the holiday cottage door after my walk with my son Ryan on the beach. I was content and felt that I mattered to him. An experience I will never forget was the day I walked with my son in the cool of the day.

A Sample of Dudley's Fave Quotes

"God is not a power or principle or law, but he is a living, creating, communicating person -- a mind who thinks, a heart who feels, a will who acts, whose best name is Father." --- Robert Hamill

I want to walk with you in the cool of the day

"Dear God I admit that I have had it wrong all my life. I admit to my sin and repent in Jesus' name. I realise that I have turned my back on you and no longer walk with you, my Lord. Come into my life again. I choose to give my life to you and to live for you for the rest of my life. Today I confess Jesus as Lord and believe that he died and rose again to free me from all sin. Thank you dear Lord for your love and mercy. I want to walk again with you in the cool of the day. Amen."
