God's Creation Week

Before time, there was God and only God. He existed as The Invisible, The Word, The Spirit. God began His creation with His words “Let there be…” and whatever He said, was.

For six days God spoke and created and praised His work. He made the earth and the sky. He hung the sun and the moon He sent minnows and whales to swim in the waters, and polar bears and giraffes to walk their great territories. He painted the earth with flowers and clay, and the sky with sunsets and stars. Then do you know what He did? He formed a special creation that was made to be like Him – mankind.

And on His very first day with man, God rested. He set that day apart from the rest and made it special, a day to spend together with us.
