“God so loved the world…” – the Bible tells us in John 3:16. What does God tell us in the Bible about Himself and His love for us? Genesis 1:1 is the very first verse in the Bible. It says: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” He created the sun, moon, stars, and galaxies. He created all the mountains, rivers, lakes, and waterfalls. He created all the plants, flowers, and trees, all the animals and birds, and all the living things on the earth and in the vast oceans. He created everything and gave them to us to enjoy.
When I see all of nature’s beauty around me, I worship our Creator God in my heart. Then the Bible says: “God created man and woman in His own image.” We do not look like God physically. But He made our spirit to be like His! We are the most special of all God’s creations! You and I are unique. Among all the billions of people who live in the world right now or who have ever lived, there is no one else exactly like you or me! We will not be reborn in another form. There is no cycle of life and death. We are created to live one life, worshiping our Creator God. Isn’t that amazing? Each of us is very special to God! God knows each of us by our name. In the Bible, He says, “I have called you by name. You are mine”!
Prayer: “Almighty God, Creator of heaven and earth, thank You for creating me and for making me unique and special.”
