He Created What?!?!

Everything. Absolutely everything. This God that wants us to love one another and the God that we cannot physically see, created everything in the entire world. He created the world. Before time began, He was. It's hard to wrap our brains around.

Genesis, is the first book of the Bible and it tells us how this all came to be. Genesis 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. God created the day and night and the land and the sea. And then what did He put into the sea? And what kinds of animals did He put on the land? He created the sky and the stars that dance in it. He created the birds and the sun and the moon. Genesis 26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, [b] and over all the creatures that move along the ground."
And do you know what He named the first man? Yes, Adam. And God then made Eve out of his rib. God made everything! How cool is that?!

Pastor Tim in his last sermon shared with us these things. Did you know that there are 10 million different kinds of plants and animals in the world? Did you know that a catfish has over 27,000 tastebuds and an octupus has 3 hearts? What about the fact that a starfish doesn't have a brain and a baby whale is as long as a school bus? Who else could do that than God?! How wondeful and amazing is that.
And God created it all by HIS word. Just HIS word.

Thank you God for your magnificent creation, for the animals and the land and the sea. Thank you for how unique you made us all. We are in awe of your work. We want to take care of what you have created. Help open others eyes to your awesome creation. Remind us when we look at the stars and the sun and the sky just who made them to be. You rock, God. You rock. Amen.
