THE WORD OF THE WEEK
TITLE: “Ready to Live in THE Miraculous!” 7/08/2019
“And God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepiest upon the earth.” Genesis 1:26
I think it is miraculous how God has considered His people through generations and generations-written in stories in the bible. It can be overwhelming to know how God mapped out a love story-narrative that begins in eternity past and ends in eternity future-saving His people from death and extinction. Its imperative to realize the importance of the Book of Genesis in the bible but more importantly to know that God existed before Genesis. Stay with me for this may blow your mind! It’ Miraculous!
God is eternal. God needs nothing, neither the universe nor the human race including neither you nor myself does he need, yet He created all! A.W Tozer wrote, “God is totally self-sufficient and needs nothing more than himself in order to exist and act. God has no relations to anything outside of himself yet He has a voluntary relationship to everything He has made. He is all-knowing, all-powerful, and everywhere-present. Contemplating on a TRIUNE GOD who always was, always is, and always will be, and who never changes but changes time in the natural is a task that overwhelms most. Psalms 92 put it like this, “Timeless, space less, single, lonely, Yet sublimely Three, the TRIUNE GOD (God, the Father, God, the Son, and God the Holy Spirit) thou art grandly, always, only God in unity!
Its miraculous that God created us and must have some miraculous purpose for us in mind. In Genesis 1:37, it tells us that we are created in His image to resemble God’s Mind, Heart and God-Spirit but not resemble in body because God is Spirit (John 4:24). Although the Old Testament emphasizes one God and God’s relationship to the Jewish people of Israel, it gives us glimpses of the gospel message revealed in the truth of the Trinity lived out by Jesus and the apostles in the New Testament. God didn’t create a world because He needed me nor you nor anything but that He might share His love with creatures who are made in the same image as God himself and form a relationship with humans who can respond willingly to His Miraculous LOVE! How awesome is that?
