Thoughts on my journey to heaven

Creation and beginnings

leave a comment »

Our church began a new sermon series on the book of Genesis yesterday and one of the most amazing thoughts I have not given real thought to was that in the christian world we tend to begin the story with Genesis 3 and the sin, the fall, and the punishment. We forget Genesis 1 in which God created all things. And said they are good. Then he created man, and said it is very good. We are very good. We are created by the amazing wonder of an all knowning and all powerful god, and he looked at his work and said we are good. We are children of the most high god, and we are good. Wrap your brain around that thought for a few moments and every other thought seems small and inconsequential.

I want to journal more, but at this moment I don;t have my notes in front of me.
