Creation - Who is God?



Have you ever stood in awe at the beauty of the world around you: the high,

snow-capped mountains or the soothing streams; the shining sun, the bright

moon, or the beauty of a butterfly?


Have you ever wondered how it all got here? Or, more importantly, why it’s all

here?


The Bible says that God spoke and the heavens were created, and that he

breathed the stars into existence. What a creative and powerful God! He created

the heavens and the earth—all that you see, and all that you can’t. Did you know

that he created it all to reflect his goodness and glory?


The Bible tells us in Psalm 19 and Psalm 146 that the beautiful, ordered creation

around us says something about God. It tells us that God is powerful. It tells

us that God is creative. It tells us that God is good. And it tells us that God is

beautiful.


Psalm 19 says that the whole creation sings and shouts about how glorious God

is! But, how often do you stop to enjoy it? Do you pause to appreciate its beauty

and glory? Have you ever whispered a thank you to God for all that he created?


The world is amazing, and it sings about God’s glory. Don’t miss it!

Today, make a list of things God has made that you love. Take some time just to

thank him for what he has created. Thank him for caring for and sustaining you

and the world around you.


Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see— such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together. Christ is also the head of the church, which is his body. He is the beginning, supreme over all who rise from the dead. So he is first in everything. For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.
-Colossians 1:15–20
