Genesis 1

Genesis 1 gives an opening statement that is the foundation of the beginning of our world. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Before anything, God was. In the first chapter, God creates everything, including the crown of His creation, mankind. It is a world where God takes unorganized chaos and through works of division and filling creates a place for mankind, made in His image, to rule as His representatives over His world. There was no sin, no suffering, no sickness, or no sadness. There was just God’s shalom, His peace that resulted in perfect harmony. No wonder God described it as “very good.”

Point to ponder: How does this picture of the world God created prepare us for the future world God has planned for us?
