Gen 1 When reading of God’s creative activity, seven times we read “And God said…” All that exists was created by the spoken word of God perfectly fulfilling their purposes. A universe of countless complex systems working & interacting as God intended includes mankind, the apex of His creation, made in His image. Disciples of Christ, let this really sink in. We exist in a world created & sustained by God’s words (Heb 1:3). His word which gives & sustains life in all creation gives & sustains eternal life in us.
