Got a few questions about your origin? Check out today's Bible Minute.
There's no chapter in the Bible that answers more basic questions than Genesis 1. It presents God. Boom! There He is. And then, boom! His world is there. He doesn't seem to need to explain how or when it got here. "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." That's it. That's all God felt He needed to say to us.
And then God seems to go into some little detail when He comes to explaining men and women -- who we are and how we got here. Interesting huh? I mean, He doesn't explain how the worlds were formed other than to say simply that they came into being. But He does explain how you and I were formed. That ought to make you feel pretty good about yourself. And I think it ought to make you feel pretty good about God as well!
