We are just starting a new Bible Study group on Sunday evenings. We are going to be looking at the Bible through the book “Core 52”. We started out with Genesis 1:1-2 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. 3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. In these first 3 verses we learned and can see that God the Father, Jesus his Son, and the Holy Spirit are all mentioned. Sometimes you have to get into the Hebrew language to understand exactly the meaning of some of the words. So here we discussed the beginning of creation and some of the different thoughts revolving around this.
John 1:1-4 (NIV) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. In the Gospel of John we can see from the New Testament perspective the Jesus was with God in the beginning. He was involved in the creation process and He is still involved in our lives today.
Colossians 1:15-18 (NIV) 15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. Here we see that Jesus is God’s son. This fact is under attach today and we need to understand this and not waiver in what we believe. Jesus is the force that is literally holding this world and the universe together.
This will turn into a great study as we meet together to study the word and fellowship together. This is a good way to get the week started.
Hope to see you on Sunday evenings. Blessing to you all. Chet Wiswell, Elder
