This same God created each one of us —He knows us by name, and He cares about every detail of our lives. Even before we turned our backs on Him, God had a radical rescue plan to save us. Jesus, our Creator, came to pay the price for our rebellion so that we have the opportunity to experience eternal life. He has made a way for us to enjoy the forever friendship He intended for us to have from the very beginning.
In fact, He has always been! .
Genesis 1:1 NKJV
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
John 1:1 NKJV
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He, along with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit, spoke everything into existence. Everywhere we look, we can see the power and glory of God.
We are made in His image. He made us to enjoy a special friendship and love relationship with Him that will last forever. God also made us to manage the earth and have dominion over it.
Genesis 1:26–31 NKJV
26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” 29 And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. 30 Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so. 31 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
GENESIS 1
Genesis 3:1–7 NKJV
1 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?” 2 And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; 3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’ ” 4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” 6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.
