From the first verse in the Bible, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” to the last verse of Revelation “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all, amen.” God offers and promises new life and new beginnings to all who will follow Him. Man, in his self-proclaimed wisdom, however, grovels in the useless theory of evolution and tries to prove that we came from a rock, all the while claiming that faith in God is blind. Surely it takes more blind faith to believe that we came from a rock than that we came from the hand of a living, loving God.

In Genesis the God we serve is the God of life and creation, in Exodus He is the God of deliverance, in Leviticus through Deuteronomy He is the God of the laws of life, in Joshua He is the God of victory, in Judges He is the God of justice, from Ruth to Esther to Job He is a God of love and restoration, from Psalms to Ecclesiastes He is the God of wisdom, in the Song of Solomon He is the God of love, in the major and minor prophets that finish out the Old Testament He is the God of future events in the lives of His people, in the gospels He is the God of salvation, in Acts He is the God of miracles and healing, from Romans to Jude He is the God of such deep and profound spiritual truths that man cannot absorb it all and in Revelation He is the God of all eternity for those who place their trust in Him.

And this God has been revealed in His Son Christ Jesus and is the Father of all who believe in His Son. His power is unlimited, His wisdom is infinite, He redeems the time that man has lost in darkness, promises the abundant life here on earth and eternal life after death and all His resources are at the disposal of His saints as they cry to Him in Faith. How could we place our trust in anything less?

In John chapter 6 Jesus asked His disciples, “Do you also want to go away?” to which Peter responded “Lord to whom shall we go, you have the words of eternal life. Also we have come to believe and know that you are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” It’s a new year, a new beginning, shouldn’t we do the same and recommit to the God of all creation and eternity?

We are building in sorrow or joy
A temple the world may not see,
Which time cannot mar nor destroy,
We are building for eternity. (Building for Eternity)
