“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”
When you think about the Biblical account of creation, do you think of Jesus?
JESUS WAS THERE!
“Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’”
Who is “us”?
“Us” refers to God in His three distinct persons, or personas. This refers to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. These three persons represent one God. There are not three gods; there is only one God who chooses to present Himself to us in three distinct presentations. God is so much greater than us that we cannot comprehend Him. We cannot wrap our brains around everything God is; what He is, where He is, what He can do; or why He chooses what He chooses. He, however, has chosen to present himself to us in ways that we can grasp, if not fully comprehend. This is often called “The Trinity.” Jesus is one of the persons of God!
The book of John in the New Testament reaffirms this reality.
John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
John 1:14 “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
