#24: Here I am Lord

My Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
God asks Adam and Eve, “Where are you?” Now, we also hear Him asking Abraham, where are you? The response of Adam and Eve was cloaked in difficulty because their eyes were closed to God. Abraham does not falter, “Here I am Lord.” On this second Sunday of Lent, God asks us, “Where are you?” Are you drawing near to me? Abraham, in his yes to God, offers himself intensely to God.
