Creation and Providence
Pastor Ricky Smith
Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise!
I. Created out of Nothing
In the beginning, God created
By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.
II. Created order
III. Creation science
IV. Created in His image
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.
We are created to connect with Him in relationship and to reflect His glory to the world
V. Created and engaged to continually create
Doing comes out of being who God created us to be
- I connect with God today and begin a relationship with Him..
- I desire God to create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit in me.
- I commit to reflect Him to the world by exercising my gifts for His glory.
- How old do you think the world is? Can you defend this biblically?
- Read Hebrews 11:3. What do we learn about God’s creative power?
- What does God’s saving grace reveal about His continuing creation?
- What is your favorite Christmas memory? Is it appropriate to celebrate Christmas all year?
- Read Isaiah 7:14. Does it matter that Jesus was born of a virgin?
- What does “incarnation of Jesus” mean?
