In the Beginning, the Son. . .

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." (Genesis 1: 1)

God is a Creating God. He is a flourishing, life-giving God.

And it's not hard work for Him, either.

The Bible gives one verse to explain Creation, yet the entire Bible, from beginning to end, testifies of His Son, Jesus Christ.

The first word of the Bible, "Bereshith", starts with the two Hebrew Letters "Beth" and "Resh".

Those two words together spell "Bar", which is the Hebrew word for "Son".

The second word of the Bible, "Bara", also starts with the two Hebrew Letters "Beth" and "Resh", and thus "the Son" appears once again.

"In the Beginning, was the Word." (John 1: 1)

As for Creation, Jesus defines all of it:

"[Christ] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17And he is before all things, and by him all things consist." (Colossians 1: 15-17)

God created, and He created through His Son.

See more of Jesus in the Word and in your life, for Christ Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14: 6).
