Daily Reading – Genesis 1 – 2 / Matthew 1
Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:
In the first few chapters of Genesis, we see several things. First, we see that earth and all its creation was all God’s idea. No Angel, including Lucifer, had any part in this grand creation that we enjoy today called earth. We also see that God needed no help in its creation. The Godhead, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, worked together in all creation. We see it in verse one when it says, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” The original word used there for God is plural which shows the trinity at work. However, the greatest thing we notice in this passage is that God made man special.
Man was created as a trinity in the image of God. Plants have life. They have a structure, or what we may think of as a body, but they have no soul or spirit. Animals, while they may appear similar to man are not the same. While animals also have life, a body, and self-consciousness, they have no God-consciousness. You do not find animals creating places of worship. Man, however, was made SPECIAL. Man has life, yet a life different from that of plants and animals. While we have a body and a self-consciousness, we also have the awareness of God. God breathed this special life into man. Genesis 2:7 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 soul. You see, man is not the same as others in God’s creation. You’re SPECIAL!
GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:
Remember, in all of God’s Creations, you were made to be like Him. We are not the ancestors of any other creation, nor the evolutionary product of time. We are created by God, and for God.
Will you let the world see today that,
You are SPECIAL TO GOD?
