Bible Notes

Genesis 1:1-2 NIV
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. [2] Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

John 1:1-3 NIV
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. [2] He was with God in the beginning. [3] Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.

Genesis 1:26 NIV
Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

It all begins with God, but look at who God is. God is not a single being, but a family of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, working together in love and unity. The Father creates, through the Son (The Word), in the power of the Spirit. This makes sense of that odd line later in Genesis 1, let us make mankind in our image. We are made to reflect the love and unity of God in our relationships with each other. We are made to be one in him and one with each other.

Lord, unite us in your Son by your Spirit. May our love for each other reflect you!
