Genesis 1: In the Beginning–Where God Belongs

Today’s Bible reading is Genesis 1 and John 20.

The Bible begins with three simple words: “In the beginning” (Gen 1:1). That’s where God belongs. In the beginning.

What if we put God at the beginning of every aspect of our lives from the beginning of 2018? At the beginning of:

  • Every day
  • Every major decision
  • Every action
  • Every interaction
  • Every reaction
  • Every conversation
  • Every confrontation
  • Every dream
  • Every motive
  • Every heartache
  • Every triumph

In the beginning, God. Make that the theme of your day and when you lay your head on your pillow tonight, you won’t be sorry. Make that the theme of your week and you’ll avoid wasting it. Make that the theme of your journey through 2018 and you’ll live this year to the glory of God. God’s glory–that’s what this universe was intended to be all about, from the beginning.
