God created us as a primarily spiritual beings to have fellowship with Him. If we are not emphasizing that in our own lives, we are neglecting the primary purpose for which God made us.
In Six Days, chapter 3, John K. G. Kramer
“… The complexity of nature clearly points to a Creator. Every biological and physical system, once understood, shows incredible complexity. Archaeologists have no problem identifying man-made objects. Why then do we have problems identifying a Creator made world?”
The only question I have is: why did He takes so long – “six days”? Throughout Scripture God is shown as an instant Creator, not in six days or 20 billion years. To give but a few examples: … the parting the Red Sea, water turning into wine, stilling of the storm, raising the dead, healing, etc. Therefore why did He use six days? Scripture gives us the answer. He established a blueprint for our life, six days of work and one day of rest (Exodus 20:8).
It must have been painstaking for God to slow down to our pace, to 6 days. It would have been more His nature to create everything instantly. I have often considered belief in Genesis chapters 1 to 11 as the “acid test” of believing in God, and in the salvation through Jesus Christ.
Since thou wast precious in My sight, thou hast been honored, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give adam [see Isaiah 53:8] in exchange for thee, and people in exchange for thy nefesh.
Are we living our lives in light of the price our Heavenly Father paid in order to have a relationship with Him by giving His son?
In our relationship with God have we:
• Called upon Him?
• Been weary of Him?
• Honored Him with sacrifice (time, money, talent)?
• Burdened Him?
• Wearied Him?
Nothing can separate YOU from God’s love – but YOU.
