Jesus is the Creator

Scripture: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And He is before all things, and by him all things consist. Colossians 1:16,17

Observation: Genesis1 - Every day is a picture. Though we can't see the first creation, we can observe the creation today and create the picture in our mind. Why not take a few minutes each day this week to observe creation.
              Day 1: The light is separated from the darkness. How can that be? The sun had not yet been created. But who is the Light? John 1 Check out the dawn - just before the sun rises and the darkness begins to flee.

             Day 2: The separation of the waters below from the waters above. It's hot summertime now. Watch the water being drawn by the sun to the clouds above.

             Day 3: The creation of plant life with the seed within itself. Can you count the trees in your yard? How many seeds do these trees produce? How many different kind of trees do you count? Each one producing seeds and more trees just like itself.

           Day 4: The creation of the sun, moon and stars. Find a place where there is little artificial light. Watch the night sky. The moon, a reflection of the sun. The constellations of stars telling the story.

          Day 5: The creation of the birds and the fish. Try bird watching, maybe while you're fishing. How many different birds can you observe? How many can you name? What kinds of fish can you catch or observe in the waters below?

         Day 6: The creation of animals and mankind. How many animals can you observe in your yard?
Adam had the privilege to name each kind. Why not pretend to be Adam and Eve and go walking to pick berries, tend a garden, feed the birds.

And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Genesis 1:27
