In The Beginning God…


The Bible begins by stating very simply that in the beginning God.  I was not in the beginning and neither were you or anyone else for that matter.  But in the beginning God.  Therefore because He was the only one present in the beginning, He is the only one qualified to instruct us in regards to the beginning of life, the reason for our existence and the meaning of life.

He has done so through His Word, the Holy Bible comprised of the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament) and New Testament.

  1. We are told that in the beginning God created everything by His Spoken Word in six days and that on the seventh day He rested.

Gen 2:1-3
Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. 2 And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.

  1. We are told that the reason for our existence is to become His loving, obedient Children through Faith in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 1:3-6
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, 5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

  1. We are told that one may find the meaning of life when they lose their life for Jesus sake.  Only when a person loses their life will they actually find it.

Matthew 16:24-26
Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 25 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. 26 For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

Do you believe that in the beginning God?  Do you believe that God created you to be His child?  Do you believe that if you surrender your life to follow Christ that only then will you find the meaning of life?

If you have not yet laid your life down do not delay!  Right now you can lay down all your wants, ambitions and desires at the feet of Jesus.

Remember the Lord’s Prayer for the Disciple…Our Father in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name, Your Kingdom Come, Your Will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven…
