God cares deeply for us and has from the very beginning. The reality of God's creative care in humanity's origin can transform the way we see God, the way we see others, and the way we see ourselves. Knowing God can shape the way we know ourselves.
Main Text: Genesis 2:7-9
Ever wonder if God is really present in your life? If He really cares? If He’s really there? Why He would love you? Why do you matter to Him? Genesis helps us answer those questions by going back to the very beginning.
The story of creation has many beautiful truths and insights, among them are some beautiful examples of 1) who God is, 2) who we are and 3) why God loves us.
First, Genesis will help paint a beautiful picture of the concern and love poured out by the Caring Creator as He put in place all that is. This world is His home, we are His pinnacle of creation and He longs to be present with us.
Second, it will help us see how we are each bestowed with the image of God. It helps us understand How God sees us and what that means for our self-worth and identity.
Lastly, it will define the nature of God’s relationship with us - His beloved. It shows us just how far God is willing to go to be present with us.
