What Do We Learn From Creation?

The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. Genesis 2:7 (NIV)
According to the creation story, God
spoke all things into being. The story repeats “God said” and out of nothing,
it came into existence. His voice created the heavens, earth, plants, animals, sun, stars, and moon.
God took special care in creating man. He bent down and got His hands dirty. He took time to form man from the land He had already created whose colors reflect the skin tones of man, from white sandy beaches, to red Georgia clay, to rich, black loam. We are intimately and humbly connected to the earth – all from the same element yet with unique fingerprints.
Then God breathed into our nostrils His own breath! Isn’t that beautiful? We are dust until His Spirit gives life and, after our final breath, our bodies return to dust. The world tells us how great we are and our advancements prove our intelligence, but the dust beneath our feet is a visual reminder that without God we have no life.
The image of God, the Master Potter, shaping us like clay continues throughout the Bible. We are continually molded and reworked, broken and repaired.
