In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
Most Christians have read today’s verse, the first verse in the Bible. But I’m not sure many realize its simple, yet profound, message!
You see, this verse clearly states where mankind began and who created everything. God is the beginning of it all!
Yet Satan knows that if he can attempt to destroy the root of our faith among unbelievers, then he can go as far as trying to destroy the entire legacy of our faith.
This verse in Scripture signifies so many things—beginnings, generations, creation, the origin of man and woman, the family, and so on. The Bible’s first sentence is the perfect segue into discovering who God is and how He has chosen to bring us into a relationship with Him.
Genesis 1:1 disperses all the ideas of atheism, polytheism, pantheism, humanism, secularism, and naturalism. The Word of God deals with these theories at the outset.
The Bible says in 2 Timothy 3:16, “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.”
Over the next several days, I want to encourage you to read through the first chapter of Genesis. And as you do, it’s my prayer that your love and understanding of God’s Word will deepen… that you will be better equipped to share the message of Christ with our post-modern culture… and that you will deepen your biblical worldview!
ARE YOU LETTING GOD’S WORD INFORM YOUR VIEW OF THE WORLD?
