Wanting to enjoy the beautiful day, I headed out for a walk and soon met a new neighbor. He stopped me and introduced himself: “My name is Genesis, and I’m six and a half years old.”
“Genesis is a great name! It’s a book in the Bible,” I replied.
“What’s the Bible?” he asked.
“It’s God’s storybook about how He made the world and people and how He loves us.”
His inquisitive response made me smile: “Why did He make the world and people and cars and houses? And is my picture in His book?”
While there isn’t a literal picture of my new friend Genesis or the rest of us in the Scriptures, we are a big part of God’s storybook. We see in Genesis 1 that “God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God He created them” (v. 27). God walked with them in the garden, and then warned about giving in to the temptation to be their own god (ch. 3). Later in His book, God told about how, in love, His Son, Jesus, came to walk with us again and brought about a plan for our forgiveness and the restoration of His creation.
As we look at the Bible, we learn that our Creator wants us to know Him, talk with Him, and even ask Him our questions. He cares for us more than we can imagine.
Hi and welcome to this Saturday. I dissent Our Daily Bread. Today's encouragement is titled God story book and it was written by and see test wanting to enjoy the beautiful day. I headed out for a walk and soon met new neighbor. He stopped me and introduced himself. My name is Genesis and I'm 6 1/2 years old.
Genesis is a great name. It's a book in the Bible. I replied, what's the Bible he asked. It's God story book about how he made the world and people and how he loves us his inquisitive response made me smile. Why did he make the world and people in cars and houses and is my picture in his book. While there isn't a literal picture of my new friend Genesis or the rest of us in the Scriptures we are a big part of God story book we see in Genesis 1 that God created mankind in his own image in the image of God he created them.
God walked with them in the garden and then warned about getting into the temptation to be their own God. Later in his book God told about how in love his son Jesus came to walk with us again and brought about a plan for our forgiveness and the restoration of his creation. As we look at the Bible we learn that our Creator wants us to know him talk with him and even asking my questions.
He cares for us, more than you can imagine today Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Genesis chapter 1 verses 26 through 31 then God said, let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.
So God created mankind in his own image in the image of God he created them male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, be fruitful and increase in number, fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground. Then God said, I give you every seed bearing plant on the face of the whole earth, and every tree that has fruit with seed in it.
They will be yours for food and all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground. Everything that has the breath of life in it. Give every green plant for food and it was so. God saw all that he had made and it was very good and there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day of let's pray. Father, we thank you for the Scriptures and the record we have of your great love for us.

They will continue in the work you have called us to. Thank you Lord it's in Jesus name we pray. Amen. Today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread ministries
