Questions punctuate the Bible from beginning to end. Usually it is God who asks questions of man. God’s questions are evidence that the Lord is not indifferent. He’s aware of you, interested, and holds you accountable, even challenges you with better.
For some of God’s questions the answer is obvious. Others probe the depths of our souls and take years to answer. Each question requires reflection, honesty, transparency. And they not only shape us; they shape our relationship with God Himself.
Following are just a few of our Lord’s queries:
“Where are you?”
“Have you eaten the fruit I told you not to eat?”
“Where is your brother?”
“Is my arm too short that it cannot save?”
“Have you not known? Have you not heard?”
“Who do men say that I am?”
“Who do you say I am?”
“Why do you persecute me?”
“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?”
“What does it profit a man if he gain the world and lose his own eternal soul?”
Yes, questions. Queries easy and hard. From God, the Ancient of Days. And now I have just one question for you myself: What is your honest response?
