God’s Creation

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” In Genesis 1:1 we see the start of time, “In the beginning,” space, “the heavens,” and matter, “the earth.” God originated them all out of nothing, as revealed by the word “created,” the Hebrew bara. Of course, God later created mankind out of matter, and we as men live in a dimension of time and space. Our whole frame of reference began in that first moment of God’s creation. We owe everything to Him, and yet, even as professing Christians, we often act as though God either does not exist or, if He does, He lives for our pleasure. At one point in Jesus’ ministry, He commanded His audience to ‘render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and to God the things that are God’s.’ We are God’s by right of His creation. We are the clay to His potter. Men instinctively know this and so they deny Him as Creator and worship and serve themselves, set on meeting their own desires first, walking after their own lusts. They suppress this knowledge of their Creator to remain in charge of their lives. They in essence block God out of their minds, selectively including Him when He is convenient to them or reinventing Him into an image that befits their own agenda. They wish a god into existence who excuses their sin and rebellion. None of this is nothing more than game playing that will be found out in the end. No one fools God.
