ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Welcome and thank you for joining us today. This is read your Bible devotion and we are reading through the Bible ina year, this ten to fifteen minute daily devotion with pastor Brad Roun Okeep your heart in my God's word well good afternoon. We start our studythrough the Bible this year and my palm Sunday next year, hopefully well havegone through the entire Bible. Today's reading is Genesis Chapter One and twoand we're going to have a devotion from those. If you want to prepare fortomorrow, we'll be looking at genesis, three four and five tomorrow, but if Iwere to say, be nut butter, you would say Andif. I were to say that man, you would say you pen, a butter and Jelly e. just gotogether, Batman and Robin they just go...

...together the beginning. In the end, they just go ogether. There are certainthings that go together and you can't have tha beginning without Amin and Jenisis chapter, one verse, one. Itsays in the beginning: God created the heavens and the earth and the beginning,God create the Heavens and the Earth Genesis tells the story of thebeginning of th material universe. It tells it with the Judaa assumption thatGod has always existed and at some point chose to bring into existence theworld in a material universe and even time itself. In other words, before thebeginning, God was before the beginning and the beginninggot before the beginning. God was, and...

...thus God is identified as the beginning of the beginning or thegenesis of the beginning and yet the beginning always questionsthanks. The question of the end as birth leaves to the inveutinevitable conclusion of death. Even so genesis points the revelation. The Alfapoints to the Omatan, the manger, points to the cost and the beginning points to the end. God's plan of creating man has theultimate relational redemption of man in line he created man to reveeme him in a relationship withGod forever and ever and ever he's not just the Alpha he's, not just thebeginning, for the outfo on would be...

...incomplete, with the possibility ofsomething contrary to God, being the emd or something contrary to the Alphabeing the OMACA. No God is the Alfa and the OMACA. He is the beginning. enve.You can't separate the two in the being of God, for they are connected, even as genesisis connected to revelation the beginning. Without the compliment end would be disastrous for mankind. The EN, without the complimentbeginning would have been disastrous from itsinception. God is complete. He is the good God who begins and theGood God who heins he is the Alpha and the omate his nature guarantees. He isthe beginning and the end which in turn...

...guarantees the beginning and Ahainbeing good. This goodness of God is especially seenin his love and carefor mankind. In fact, we read Genesis one one in thebeginning, God created the heavens in the earth. Now go down to verse, ThirtyOne God saw all that he had made and behold it was very good. The beginning is good. The end is good,the goodness of God- and there was evening- and there was morning of thesixth day and then n Genis Genesis, Chapter Twovers seven, it says, then the Lord God formed man of dustfrom the ground and breathed into as nostrils the breath of life and manbecame a living Ben.

The Lord God planted a guard toward theeast of even and there he placed the man and he had,for the goodness of God, has seen in hislove and care for mankind from the very beginning genes. Just chapter one is a creation,STORE GENESIS: Chapter Two is a creation store, you say well, Passon,why did God say? Genus is one God created all these things and thenJenisus do it says Godrik seems like two different stories. Well, thereare,two stories of the same story: Genesis one involves general creation, the heavents, the sun, the stars. Thesees the animal setres genesis too, is focused on God's creation of Mea Genesis. One is focused on y generalcreation by God. Genesis too is focused...

...on a relational creation by arelational God. It's this relationship that God is interested in. In fact, itis interesting in Jenes's, one that when you read in the beginning, Godcreated the heavens in the earth. Did you catch that in the beginning, Godcreated now Jenisis Chapter two: Let's read that again, verse. Seven, then the Lord God. Why is it in Genesis Chapter One? Infact all of Genesis- chapter one- it just says God, but in Genesis, chapter two: it saysmore God over and over again. Those are two different words in theHebrew in Genesis: one, it's Hellowe, God in Genesis too its Yachtway, the Covenant- God the Relational God.The Lord God creates men for a loving...

...covenantal relationship with himselfGod created man, Tok Blash and poor God's love into God created man to experience thegreatest experience possible, a relationship with love, a relationshipwith life and relationship with God. In fact, when we get to genesis chaptertwo speaking of that loving convenentof God, it says again in verse. Seven thenthe Lord God. For that word, form is a word. That means like a sculpture, wild carefully.SCULPED is creation. It brings with a disincredible forming of a pottercarefully and tenderly shaping his creation. This loving relationship,where God carefully in tenderly forms...

...man and then in perse. We also see he planted a garden, anextravagant garden for man to enjoy from the charaful former of man inverse, seven to the extravagant park and verse God Mad for Man to enjoyGod's caring, loving providence for his highest creation. That's why God made me, may our relationship with God grow asnever before this year? May We commit to pray and spend time with God asnever before? May We truly learn to love the Lord,our God, the Lord, our God, that Covenant Name With All our heart,so in my...

You can only imagine thiscovenant relationship with God and we end up lommeting with all of our heart,so in mine.
