Creation

Bible VerseGenesis 1: 3-5

Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.

1:12 The earth brought forth vegetation: plants yielding seed of every kind, and trees of every kind bearing fruit with the seed in it. And God saw that it was good.

Reflection

From where you are standing, what can you see? Can you see examples of Gods creation? Flowers, trees, animals, the sky.

Look at the trees and bushes and for signs of life and new growth on the branches and on the ground signs of flowers and bulbs.

The accounts of creation found in Genesis, in the Psalms and elsewhere in the Bible convey a central truth; God is the ultimate creator of everything, the source of all goodness, a God to be worshipped and feared.

Each Sunday millions of Christians recite the Nicene Creed: ‘We believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.’ But do we remember God as creator enough elsewhere in our daily lives or in our own prayers?  

Action

Make time to read the account in the Bible of the Creation story in Genesis 1 and as you journey through Lent, take note of the beautiful things around you every day and remember to thank God for his gifts.
