Covenant Compendium #1
Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”
God was the only One at the beginning of everything, this means that you weren’t there. You and I and everyone else who ever lived did not have a say in the making of the world. We did not give God tips on how to create gravity, what a chicken should taste like, or why all daisies should look the same. We also were not there to give God our two-cents on what morality should be. No human has been a legal representative in God’s courtroom suggesting what His laws should be since God would be the one who made the lawyers, and the courtroom, and the breath in your lungs. Because you were not there as a co-creator, you and I have no say in what the Creator decides to do, and we have no say in what He requires from His creation. The ramifications of this truth, “In the beginning God…” means that He made us and sustains us, and we owe Him.
Hence, Paul’s claim, “For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For His invisible attributes, namely, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse” (Romans 1:19-20).
