Genesis 1:3-5 (NKJV) 3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.
“In the beginning God [Elohim: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit] created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1 NKJV). On the first day God said, “Let there be light.” On the second day God said, “Let there be a firmament.” On the third day God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.” Also, on the third day God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit three that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth.” On the fourth day God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth.” On the fifth day God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.” On the sixth day God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind.” Also, on the sixth day God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” (See Genesis 1:3-26). “And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made. This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens” (Genesis 2:2-4 NKJV). This is the account of Creation, it is God’s handiwork, if you will. But notice God spoke everything into existence except for man. “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being” (Genesis 2:7 NKJV). My friends, we are different from all the creatures of God’s creation. We have a living soul, that is we have a spirit. We are fearfully and wonderfully made, and we have a special connection with God. We should remember this.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
