“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." (Genesis 1:1, NIV)

August 1, 2019

Genesis 1:1 begins with the words – “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Such beautiful words but words that have often divided humanity as we have wrestled with their scientific or historical accuracy. However, I invite you for a second to instead of considering this as a historical or theological statement to just consider the first five words, “In the beginning God created.” Don’t get focused on the details or the description but instead focus on a God at work in the beginning creating, or better yet God who still is at work creating all there is.


You see I love the Genesis passages for they call us to see a God who didn’t have to but chose to create all there is out of love….which speaks to us still as the God who created you - loves you.
