Sunday Morning SoundBytes – 1/6/2008

Yesterday we began a new message series called God’s Good Creation. Yesterday’s message was called God’s Good Creation and was taken from Genesis 1:1, 31; 2:1-3.

Genesis 1:1, 31; 2:1-3 – “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth …

God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning — the sixth day.

Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.”

The main idea of the message was that we must understand our beginnings if we are to rightly understand how we are to live today. Here is the outline of the message:

I. It all starts with God (Genesis 1:1a)
    A. Three philosophical choices
        1) God has always existed
        2) The universe has always existed
        3) Something came from nothing

    B. One biblical choice

II. God created all things (Genesis 1:1b)
    A. God is prior to creation
    B. God is separate from creation
    C. God is over all creation

III. God created all things good (Genesis 1:31-2:3)
    A. God brought order in creation
    B. God approved his work of creation
    C. God completed his work of creation
