To read the Bible in a year, read Genesis 1–2 on January 1, In the year of our Lord 2017
By Don Ruhl
Wonderful things happened on the fifth day of Earth. However, day six would be no ordinary day, for this is how it began,
Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good (Genesis 1.24–25).
Next year, Lord willing, we will discover another creation of God’s on the sixth day. Here notice that God created the beasts. Whatever animals are on the Earth, they got here because they were created, and they continue to exist by the power of God. These animals did not come into their existence by themselves, nor did they come from other animals and evolve into their present state. There is a God above who made this wonderful world and all that inhabits it.
- How would you explain to atheists and evolutionists that everything was created?
- What has persuaded you that God exists and that He created you?
