Pastor Mike Bailey

Introduction:

The creation of the world is a testament of God’s love, creativity, presence, intelligence and provision. The world around us points to the glory of God and ultimately the love He has for each of us. Through the creation account mankind is given a window to better understand and enjoy the Creator. The opening chapters of the greatest book ever written, the Bible, are not simply a prelude to the writings of wise men, prophets, kings and mighty warriors of God; these chapters give us a glimpse of what was and what is to come. It shows us how to navigate the world we find ourselves in today. This account reveals the singular greatest intention God had for us at the point of creation, that we would have an eternal, blessed and perfected relationship with Him.

For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. Romans 1:20

Closing: What is your excuse for not following and trusting in God today? What proof are you seeking? What miracle do you need? Is the beauty and creation around you not enough for you to call on the name of Jesus today?
