An excerpt from Week 1 of “Follow the Light”


The God who created our universe also created science, or perhaps to be more precise, created the laws of science and physics. These laws are some of the ways to see Him and get to know our God as we interact with His creation constantly. This was my mind set as I opened to Genesis 1 and began reading.

Meditate on the Creation Story, Genesis 1:1-19. Part of the passage is reprinted below:

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 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. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day.” Gen.1:1-19.

What?? Back up! God didn’t make the sun, moon and stars until the fourth day of Creation? So what was the light on Day 1?

Let’s ponder that observation for a moment.

– What were the first words God spoke in the Bible?

– What else did God make on the first day?

Your answers reveal where you have concentrated your study of Scripture. Follow the Light is an eight week Bible Study that explores how God reveals Himself to us throughout the Bible, using the metaphor light. When you complete this study you may never look at light the same way again.

Live in His Light,

Julie
