God's Creation – Genesis

Let’s face it, creation is a mystery to all of us. No one knows exactly how God formed/established the earth and massive solar system–but He did. He tells us in His word that He did. So as a believer in Christ and all that God is, I take Him at His word. Christians like myself look past the unknown parts of this complicated story and simply place our faith in His truth.

I don’t question how I can smile and talk into a small electronic device, then somehow my image and voice travel through air and appear on your screen. It’s not something most folks can easily explain, but it happens. For God, believers trust the history of His perfection that we read in the Bible. And in this history we find passages of God’s truth shared with His people.

So believers, called to live by faith, follow God’s truth in the Bible, which begins with the wonderful story of Creation in Genesis.

Are You Redeemable?

Never doubt your worthiness to God–no matter the mess you feel you’ve created. God created you and He loves you. The Gospel affirms God sacrificed Himself to mankind in order that we may believe in this love and follow Him. Some may call faith in God a fairy tale but believers, we know in our hearts that those verbal assaults are spread by people with hardened hearts. They are spreading lies.

Fairy tales only offer momentary gratification–then life continues to hurt. God, in His infinite wisdom, offers everyone an earthly lifetime of hope, joy, and love, no matter the circumstance. By turning your life over to Christ, He will help you through any mess. Christ will get you through the hurt. Understand, Christ is here to help and desires you to hand your mess over to Him. In one quick moment you can receive His love.

Allow your heart to understand that nothing rings truer than this:

Jesus Christ died for all of us!

Romans 8:32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?
