Word of the Day: Genesis

Dec 7, 2021 | Words of Wisdom

GENESIS – the origin or coming into being of something; the mainly narrative first book of canonical Jewish and Christian Scriptures

The Bible is a book of hope. It gives us assurance. It soothes us with God’s comfort. It enlightens us with God’s plans and purposes for now and into eternity. From the very first verse, God has revealed Himself in such a way as to cause us to lift our hearts in wonder and praise and thanksgiving.

Scripture: Genesis 1:1

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”


“No philosophical theory which I have yet come across is a radical improvement on the words of Genesis, that ‘In the beginning God made Heaven and Earth’”. 

 C. S. Lewis
