I have been posting Bible verses on Facebook for a few years as I read through it. I just finished and I’m starting again. It was only a fewmonths ago that I started adding my commentary to the verses I chose. It was my wife’s suggestion because it would give some contest to why I chose them. And it was a great idea! So, I will be starting to repeat them here on my blog. This will make them easier to find and search for particular chapters. Eventually, this may be useful to you. In the meantime, this is my personal devotional made public.
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day. Genesis 1:1-5
This, the beginning and what we think of it, can determine our eternal destiny. It is the place where many of us decide who or what God is. To believe the Bible’s account of creation is to believe in a God who is above and beyond creation, and not just a part of it. He creates light before the sun comes on the scene. Everything He does defies our minute understanding. Or, you make God a mere force, impersonal, that must bow it’s knee to your understanding. The Bible gets thrown out as evidence, and you are left trying to explain everything on your own.
