The Living Word: Through the Bible in 1 year - Week 1 Genesis 1
Voice command technologies are in high demand these days and the possibilities are seemingly limitless. I often use Siri to manage my cell phone. However, I run into problems with the device frequently, reminding me of its limitations and the limitations of technology and/or mankind. On the other hand, we have the very Word of God. Genesis 1 tells us that “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth,” the lights in the sky, animals and…humankind. At each creation moment the Bible reads, “And God said…” (Gen. 1:3, 6, 9, 14, 20, 27). Therefore, God spoke creation into existence. Furthermore, John’s gospel calls Jesus the Word or the Logos. John 1:1-3 says, “In the beginning was the Word, and Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made.” That is to say, God created all things through Christ Jesus our Lord. God spoke, then, through Jesus and brought all things to pass. Today, God still speaks through Jesus. His life, His Word, His Testimony speaks. He calls you and I and all of creation into relationship with Him and newness of life. He offers new beginnings, He offers restoration, He offers healing, He offers…ETERNAL LIFE! Will you listen for Christ as He calls?
