“And God Said…” – Genesis 1:1-5 – Pastor Larry Kassebaum
Before and after
As your read your Bible ask yourself, “What am I looking for?
Notice that God brings order out of chaos.
This is for you
The fact that the Bible is the most published and most read book every written is of only secondary importance.
God wants you to know the depth of His power and preparation for your well-being.
In God we trust
Let God’s Word be your conscience, your confidence and your constant companion.
The creation account is only partially about what God did it is primarily about how we are to worship and obey Him.
1. How does your view of the creation story in Genesis 1 and 2 change if you are looking for answer to the question of “Who?” instead of “How?”
2. How important is it that you begin to develop more trust in a God who is able to bring order out of chaos and light of darkness?
3. How does reading the story of creation give you hope for how God is right now actively working with the events of your life?
4. Why do you think there are so many powerful forces at work to undermine your trust in God and the Bible?
5. What comfort/hope can you find for how long and how well the Bible has been preserved in spite of the years and the assaults?
6. When you hear God speak through scripture do you expect that word to be as powerful and creative as the words of creation? Why or why not?
