Q4: What else did God create? God created all things, and all his creation was very good.
Our memory verse is Genesis 1:31
“And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good.”
John Calvin: “God has given us, throughout the whole frame-work of this world, clear evidences of his eternal wisdom, goodness, and power; and though hi is in himself invisible, he in a manner becomes visible to us in his works.”
You may have seen this video before, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Are9dDbW24 a zoom out from a person to the edge of the universe, and then a zoom in down to the protons and neutrons. It gives a sense of the breadth and depth of creation. Colossians 1:16-17 says “16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” Jesus Christ is holding the very universe together, down to the protons and neutrons, and out to the furthest reaches of the universe.
It might make you feel small, and it rightly should. James 4 says “we are a vapor.” That smallness should lead us to worship.
It also should embolden us, because the God of the universe that has made all things, knows the hairs on your head. He knows you and loves you. He moved heaven and earth to secure your place with him in eternity by the sacrifice of his precious Son.
Share with your children this week the incredible weight and glory of God, and that He is the creator of everything, and that He created them.
