What We Can Learn From Genesis 1-2

Posted: September 17, 2011 in Uncategorized

The Bible is a great place to learn about the mistakes of others and to become wiser and more intelligent in our daily choices.

One thing that we need to lean is that God is eternal, the alpha and omega. God is also omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. He created the entire universe out of nothing by His will. When God made the world he saw that everything he had created was good. The reason that it was good was because God said it was good, not because we liked it or because Adam and Eve liked it, it was because God said it was good.

Another thing that we are shown in Genesis is that God communicates with us. He is not just some invisible force or power, he is a being he communicates with us and he wants a relationship with us because he cares about us. God didn’t speak to the fish when he created them, he didn’t speak to the birds or the trees or the animals he spoke to the humans and only the humans. This is kind of a big deal because we can communicate with God the one who created us, the one who gives us life, and the one who is the reason for our existence.

These are some things that we could learn from Genesis 1-2 and it was very insightful for me!
