Key Verse: “Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us….” Genesis 1:26
Throughout history, people have created some amazing things, take microchips and skyscrapers for example, but all these things pale in comparison compared to the creative abilities of the Lord.
Consider for a moment how much activity takes place every millisecond inside a human cell no bigger than a pinhead. Even the smallest parts of God’s creation amazes us. God, solely by the Word of his mouth, created the heavens and the earth, He brought forth plants and animals, raised mountains, and flung stars into space. We cannot even begin to imagine God’s creative genius.
Colossians 1:16 reminds us that he created everything, both visible and invisible. John 1:3 further says, “God created everything through him, (Jesus) and nothing was created except through him!” Every atom and every molecule in existence was breathed into being by the Lord, and is held together by his power.
When we reflect on creation, we must note that God’s greatest masterpiece is not the radiant colours of a sunset, or the spectacular mountain ranges or even the vastness of space. Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” We are God’s greatest masterpieces, created in his the image and likeness and to have fellowship with Him.
God knows everything about us because He created us. The psalmist wrote, “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvellous—and how well I know it” (Psalm 139:13–14 NLT)
It is important that we obey the words of Ecclesiastes 12:1 and remember our Creator. Remembering God does not mean merely thinking about Him once in awhile, but praising Him daily. We must be careful never enjoying the majesty of creation so much, that we forget the Creator.
