In the Cool of the Day

“Have you ever observed that scene in the garden of Eden at the time of the fall?  God had threatened Adam that if he sinned he should surely die.  Adam sinned: did God make haste to sentence him? ‘Tis sweetly said, ‘The Lord God walked in the garden in the cool of the day.’ Perhaps that fruit was plucked at early morn, mahap it was plucked at noontide; but God was in no haste to condemn; he waited till the sun was well nigh set, and in the cool of the day came, and as an old expositor has put it very beautifully, when he did come he did not come on the wings of wrath, the he ‘walked in the garden in the cool of the day.’ He was in no haste to slay.”  –Charles H. Spurgeon “Spurgeon’s Sermons” Vol. 3, p. 363

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
