Genesis 1:1 states “in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth

There are 2 purposes in this opening statement:

i) to identify God as the Creator.

ii) to explain how our world came about.

 

This fact is certain–God existed before everything; and everything has its beginning with God!

Here are 4 Key Truths we can start to share and celebrate with others today—

1) Creation had a beginning. God created the universe and everything within.(God is the only Being whose existence is not contingent on someone/something else. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End)

2) God created the universe out of nothing

3) God owns all of creation absolutely

4) God created the universe and all of us for a purpose. (Because God is our Creator, He has a unique purpose for each of us and has the right to tell us what to do. God has the absolute right of ownership over us)

There is therefore no other way to approach the first verse and first chapter of Genesis but to recognize that OUR GOD IS AWESOME!
