Adam’s sin brought shame upon himself and his wife. It also brought God’s judgment. Our text today describes two responses that serve to close out this chapter in human history. Adam, now living under the curse of misery in his life, also believes in God’s promise of a redeemer, and names his wife Eve accordingly. By her childbearing, future generations will come, including the man Jesus who would take on sin, shame, and nakedness in our place. And God, having observed Adam’s meager attempt to cover his own nakedness with fig leaves, intervenes to provide adequate clothing. By this we learn that God is able and willing to cover our shame. How do we then respond? Is our behavior evidence of our faith?
