“In the beginning, God…”
and then repeatedly, “And God said….”
Here we are at the beginning of another year…..
We are blessed with another year of God’s grace! God is at the beginning of it all. He is at the beginning of this year, too. And He speaks! He is a God who spoke this very world into existence. Indeed, Hebrews 1 says, “Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power.”
Wow! God speaks and His Word is power! He created the universe with a word and he upholds it by the word of his power. What a privilege to read this Word and to see God revealed to us through Jesus, the Word became flesh! May we all come to know Him more deeply this year.
Consider inviting a friend to join you in reading the Bible through this year…to know God through His Word.
