How would you begin the great story of the Bible? Would you say things as simply as they are? Would you stretch the bounds of language trying to begin this great story?
The older I get and the more I read the Bible I love it. I love it because it says things I would never think of and it says it in ways I never would. The Bible is such a simple book containing profound truth. To begin our study let’s see what Genesis 1 reveals about God.
The Bible is the revelation of God so we may know Him. He has revealed all that we need to know Him and to be in a proper relationship with Him.
From the outset the Bible gives God to us. The Bible is a story about God and His redemption purchased by His Son Jesus Christ. The first sentence of the Bible is “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Pretty simple. The first thing the Bible reveals is that God is creator.
