01/01/20: Genesis 1-3; Matthew 1
Greetings everyone & welcome to this year’s Bible reading adventure. Our plan this year is to read through the entire inspired Word of God by reading roughly six days (will not always be exactly 6.) We will then take one day as a time of “reflection” on what we have read. If you find the amount of reading challenging we encourage you to use the reading plan and read through one of the testaments. The amount is not as important as making the reading a daily habit.
As you can see from today’s posting we will be reading a few chapters a day, unless otherwise denoted. Since we will be reading several chapters our focus and reflections may differ a bit. I look forward to all of your insights. If you are following “online” the link to the website is:
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
Well, in today’s reading I do not have to “go far” to be struck by the awesome nature of the Lord. From my science background I know that the First Law of Thermodynamics states heat energy (and therefore all matter) cannot be created or destroyed. It can, however, be transferred from one location to another and converted to and from other forms of energy.
But what do we see here? The Lord, God Almighty did not “transfer” matter from one form to another — he created from a “formless and empty” existence all that was and is and is to come!
