Genesis 1 | The Story Begins
June 5, 2022
To know who we are and what to do (how to live), we need to know what story we are in. Genesis 1:1-2:3 is the account of the creation of the world in poetic verse as the author, God, reveals himself. The story begins as God calls the world into being (Genesis 1-11) and then calls a people to himself (Genesis 12-50). He forms the universe and then fills it with his creation: order out of chaos; life from nothing; his word speaking creation into existence and inviting us, the pinnacle of his creation, into relationship with him, our Creator and God.
