The Truth About You…Creation
Day 6 – God created man
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old is gone, the new is here!”
2 Corinthians 5:17
So, this week we continue with our study of Day 6. God creates human kind.
Do you remember what God used to create human kind? Genesis 2:7
God said “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness” What does that mean? What are the things/traits that God gave us that make us different than God’s other creations?
One of the things we have is the ability to make choices. We have the freedom to choose. We have the freedom to choose whether or not we want to follow or obey the rules. Do you choose to obey the rules? All the time? What did Adam and Eve choose?
When Adam and Eve chose to break the rule it separated them God, this made them very sad, it also made God very sad. But, God had a plan. Do you remember the Secret Rescue Plan?
God’s Secret Rescue Plan was to create another man, a different kind of man, this man would not be created from the earth. Read 1 Corinthians 15:47 Where was this man from? Read Philippians 2:5-11 What was His name? What did He do? Read Hebrews 2:14-15
Jesus died on the cross so that you and I could be connected to God again and the connection lasts forever. Read John 3:16 We call this the gift of Salvation. Have you been given the gift of salvation? Yes you have. We all have. It’s a gift. It is not something that we can earn or need to earn. The better question is, have you accepted God’s gift? Read Romans 10:9 and John 11:25
The Bible tells us that once we accept God’s gift of salvation we are made new. Re-read the verse at the top of this page. You can also read 1 Corinthians 15:42-45
