Mom's Commentary - Genesis 1:1b (part 1)

Genesis 1:1b God created (part 1)

Here is the report per the Bible:

No one else created the heavens or the earth. Just God.

Yes, that is the report:

That God created everything we see, from the world which we see and touch and smell and hear, to the macrocosm beyond our largest telescopes, to the microcosm too small for our most powerful microscope. An intricate design from the grandiose to the infinitesimal.

It is also reported that He created the spiritual realms we do not see (though Elijah and others have had at least glimpses into that world). (Col 1:16, II Kings 6:17 - and some of those principalities are spiritual Ephesians 6:12)

But did He finish with creating at the end of Genesis 1?

No! For example:

He creates in us a clean heart when we call upon Him with sincere hearts - ready to obey Him as god! (Ps. 51:10)

He also began to create, and continues to perfect, out of chaos: 'Us' (that is, the body - the church). (Phil. 1:6)

Oh how I long for the perfecting of 'Us'.... not just myself - but 'Us'.

'We', the church, might seem to be too chaotic for anything to reign us in, but He has promised that even now He is holding us together and perfecting out of 'us' - a new 'Us.' (Phil. 1:6)

God created!

God IS creating!



If you would like to become a part of those of 'Us' whom God has saved, and in whom He has begun to raise up a more perfect love, you can learn more about how to do that here.
