Bible Story: Creation Story: Days 1-5 | Genesis 1:1-25
From the opening pages of Scripture, we encounter God’s creativity in action. But God is not finished creating! He created people in His image to take care and develop His magnificent creation. Humans are unique in that we reflect God in how we interact with each other and the world around us. That interaction includes God’s creativity. We may not form mountains and oceans, but we create art and music, build cities, solve problems, and innovate technology—all of which starts with the creativity God has placed in us.
We kick off the month in Genesis 1:1-25 and look at the beginning. As we look around at the world around us we see the moon and stars, the plants and animals, we can’t help but see the creative beauty in God’s creation. He is the Master Artist and Sculptor. Everything in this world is intricately designed and points to God’s fingerprints in creation.
God made everything. When we see how God created the world around us, we see who we are in light of His grandeur and majesty. God created us apart from the rest of creation when He created us in His image, and when we create, we reflect His image to the world around us.
