Lesson 05 – What Part of Creation Does God Value the Most?
In this lesson, we are going to take a look at the one part of creation that God values the most. God told us in chapter one that He created the earth in six literal 24-hour days. From Genesis chapter 1:
On day 1 (vs 3-5), God created light. In verse 4, God said that it was “good”.
On day 2 (vs 6-8), God created the atmosphere where the birds fly. It divided the waters. There was water above the atmosphere and water below the atmosphere.
On day 3 (vs 9-13), God caused the land to appear. The land He called Earth and the gathering of the waters He called seas. In verse 10, God said that it was “good”.
Also on this day, God made the grass and trees. Then in verse 12, after making the grass and trees, God said that it was “good”.
On day 4 (vs 14-19), we read that God made the stars, the sun and the moon. In verse 18, God said that it was “good”.
On day 5 (vs 20-23), we read that God made the fish that swim in the water and birds that fly in the air. In verse 21, God said that it was “good”.
On the last day, day 6 (vs 24-31), God made the land animals. In verse 25, God said that it was “good”.
When God looked at what He made up to this point, He said that it was good. God was preparing the world for man to live on. Everything was good in God’s sight.
Then in verses 26-30, God creates man. In verse 31, after God made man, He said “it was very good”. It is important to see the difference.
When God created the light, the land, the grass, the trees, the sun, the moon, and stars, the fish, the birds, and the land animals, He said it was good.
But after creating man, God said it was very good. This shows that God values mankind more than nature and the animals He created. Man is much more important to Him.
At the beginning, God created man good. There was no evil or suffering in the world. But today, there are all kinds of bad people, evil and suffering.
What happened? How did evil and suffering come into our world? The Bible has the answer. It is very important for you to understand the answer.
Without understanding this answer, there is no way for you to come into a right relationship with God. Through these Bible lessons, you will learn how evil and suffering came into the world.
You will also learn how God made a way for you to come into a right relationship with Him.
But for now, it is very important to understand that God created man good. There was no evil or suffering in the world.
In all of God’s creation, what does He value the most? God values man the most.
God made everything on this earth so that you would have a place to live and where God could have a relationship with you. He wants to be a part of your life.
