Genesis 1:1 (KJV)
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
Have you ever gazed into the heavens and wondered, how did it get there? Did all those trillions of stars and millions of galaxies actually result from some humongous explosion of gases in outer space eons ago? Have you ever wondered from where the gases might have come, or how it was possible that exploding gases produced precise planetary systems? Do exploding gases bring into being solid materials or an earth filled with living beings?
Since the beginning of time, man has been trying to explain the incomprehensible. Have you ever wondered why man doesn’t just accept God’s account: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth?
When a man accepts the fact that Almighty God, in all of His majesty and great glory, created the universe, man immediately becomes the created being and God becomes our Creator. We then become accountable to our Creator-God for how we live and how we treat our fellowmen. The Bible tells us that every one of us have failed in this. Even from our youth we have stolen, lied, cheated, and our hearts were filled with hatred, anger, and lust. God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to pay the penalty for your sins and mine. You can have your sins forgiven, because He paid the penalty for your sins. Have you ever considered praying and asking God to forgive your sins?
If the Bible account is true about the creation of all things, then it is also reliable for the saving of your soul. God wants to enjoy your presence in the heaven He has created for all who confess their sinful life and follow His Son.
