How is our interpretation of the creation story in Genesis 1 deepened when we consider its ancient historical and cultural context? In this Bible commentary video, we look at how the literary design of Genesis 1 reveals God’s ideal vision for the whole cosmos.

I am always struck by something different when I read through scripture. Today, I think that the thing that stuck out the most to me was God’s example of rest on the seventh day. God is almighty and doesn’t need to rest, but he set the example for us… which I don’t always follow. I am going to make sure I do better this year following God’s example of what rest looks like!
Good insight…praying for your following of the example!
I so enjoyed this 1st day of devotions. Thank you for making this possible.
It strikes me again that God called His creation of human beings VERY GOOD! As the climax of His creation and special stewards of it all, we get to partner with God to accomplish His purposes! And, even though we live in a broken and fallen world, we are still called to partner with Him to bring light and life! May we do that better than ever in 2023!
More than a Bible reading plan, was great to listen to !
In the dark nothingness, he was still there
I have always wondered what earth looked like at the beginning, unspoiled and unbroken . How beautiful it must have been.
Have a Blessed 2023. Unfortunately, I am recovering from my 4th bout of Covid. Yes, I have been vaccinated and boostered , my immune system must be asleep.
Live in the Tree of Life. The theme of our Life Group this past quarter.
I loved that God filled the sun and moon with His own light; as I look out into the sky now it makes me smile to think I am seeing the beautiful light of God shining on the world.
In Psalm 1 it says we are to “delight” in God’s law. Delight and law are not words I typically connect. This made me examine the things I take delight in… family moments, food…
To delight in God’s law means to bend toward God’s Word. I need to reposition my “bend” to lean into Scripture and all the Lord has placed before me to learn and grow in Him.
I downloaded the Bible Project when I first heard about it a few years ago. The videos are so well done and gives you insights beyond normal reading. This first video shows that he is a God of order and His perfect creation gives me more confidence that when I turn to Him in prayer, his direction can be trusted fully because of His amazing wisdom as seen in His beautiful and wonderful creation.
There are times its hard to think the creator of the universe would call us Very Good, it can be easy to fall into the wrong thinking with all the trouble in the world, but its very refreshing to see how strong Gods love for us truly is and has been since the beginning, Genesis is reminding me of that, and its an honor and humbling that God trusts us with so much and has created a way for us to actually be able to approach him and have fellowship and companion ship with him! Thats Awesome Love and I pray more people find that in 2023 and we continue to share this Amazing rescue story,, even if were not accepted when attempting to share it with others who may not be in Christ as of yet
1 Corinthians 14:33 for God is not a god of disorder but of peace as in all the meaning of God’s holy people I believe living in order helps us to be in line with God cuz he’s the god of order we cannot live life in chaos we’re not fruitful when that happens or it is important to the Lord
As a visual learner I enjoy the videos this is a great way to get through people that have disabilities learning visual learning is the best thank you
Love the bible project series.
Why is only Day One posted on the CCC app? I thought we were doing this study together ? It is no where to be found on the church’s app.
We are actually doing the plan through the YouVersion Bible app and our website. You can see the homepage here that walks you through the whole process! https://compassaz.church/bibleplan/
