In the beginning


Read Hebrews 11:3. What does this verse tell us about God and the creation of the universe?

I remember when I was a kid I loved to build. I would build with Lego’s, I would take apart toys an try to make other things out of them. I think it was something in my blood that drove me to create. The thing about the way I created is that I always had to have something in my hands to create with. As children of God, we are created in His image. When I want to create things I am simply showing I am like my heavenly Father. The biggest difference is that when God created He just spoke it into existence. “The worlds were prepared by the word of God” (NASB). In order to believe that God did this we must have Faith. Our faith is what helps us to understand this concept because we can not see what God used to create the worlds.

Why is a supernatural Creator, One who exists above and beyond the Creation, the only logical explanation for the Creation? Bring your answer to class on Sabbath.

When I sit down to a nice home cooked meal, the smell wafts up my nostrils, and my taste buds seem like its dripping. When I take a bite and its delicious I know someone knew what they were doing. Behind every good meal there is a good cook. What if someone told me that the food made it’s self. The ingredients sat in the the kitchen for a week and the gradually began to drift toward each other and cling and form into what I just ate. I would think that it was pretty cool, it would require faith. For me the more logical explanation is that someone made the food rather than that the food made itself. In the same way to explain the creation by a supernatural Creator makes more sense than saying the world created it’s self over time.

Prayer: Lord of all creation, with faith we recognize you as our Creator. Thank You for Your benevolence and mercy. Thank You. In Jesus’ name
