Genesis 1:31: Behold Creation
Monday, December 19, 2016
In this final week of Advent, let us decide to make our hopes tangible, our dreams a prayer for our reality, our faith unwavering and our love secure. Let us cleave to the Creator, follow the Redeemer and rest in the Spirit. This week let us give one another the gift of preparing for the very real promise of eternity.
From the first moment of creation, God has each of us in mind.
God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day. (NASB)
From the dawning of the first day, God plants hope for union in each of us.
God looked at everything he had made, and he was very pleased. Evening passed and morning came – that was the sixth day. (GNT)
From the beginning of time, God insists on being faithful to us.
God saw everything that he had made, and indeed it was very good. So there was evening, and there was morning, a sixth day. (CJB)
From the beginning of God’s plan, we are loved into goodness.
God looked over everything he had made;
it was so good, so very good!
It was evening, it was morning—
Day Six. (MSG)
Behold, God has made all things in and for us. Let us remember that each is important to the whole.
When we reflect on varying versions of the creation story, we begin to understand just how much God loves us.
