God Created the World

Today’s readings are taken from  Gen 1:1–2:25, Matt 1:1–2:23 and Eccles 1:1–5.

I think the simple lesson from these early chapters in Genesis is that God created the world and all her inhabitants. People argue about how to interpret this but regardless of your position, the Bible’s claim is clear. God created everything.

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1, ESV)

There are many man-made opinions about the origin of life. However, these are all just idolatry, replacing the God of the Bible with a false god.

Nancy Pearcey in her book Finding Truth: 5 Principles for Unmasking Atheism, Secularism, and Other God Substitutes covers this well and it is worth a read / listen. The following is a short extract:

Since everyone who rejects God sets up an idol, this is the strategic place to begin. An idol is anything in the created order that is put in the place of God. This definition not only gives us tools to identify our personal idols, it also gives insight into the world of ideas. Philosophies and worldviews can also function as counterfeit gods.

So today rejoice in God, the God who created everything. He created you and a place for you to live and one day will live in a new Eden in harmony with the human family redeemed through his son Jesus.

This is a good video from our friends at The Bible Project on the book of Genesis:

The Legacy Collection

My first published book “Sacred Places” went live two weeks ago. I’ve been blown away by the support from friends and family thank you all so much for the encouragement and investment. Sacred Places will remain the major focus from Humble Majesty this year but that doesn’t mean I’m stopping here or slowing down…. I haven’t suddenly arrived because I’ve published a book… these so much more to do.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been working on the next Humble Majesty project and I’m glad to say it is available today.

In 2014 my Pastor asked me to, so I wrote the study, reflection and application notes for each day of the annual bible reading plan* we have been following at our church, Worldwide Mission Fellowship. It was a great joy but also intense… I wrote and published every day of that year.

In 2015 my friends, Aimee Gripman and Michael Hossanah helped to enhance the notes by proofreading the originals and suggesting improvements with punctuation etc.

The notes were available each day from 2014 to 2016 on the WWMF website and App. Now I’m glad to announce these daily devotional notes are available in paperback as a 4 volume set or as a single volume e-book.

You can pick them up exclusively from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. These legacy volumes come under the title “Daily Truth”
