Why is the Genesis account of creation such an encouraging and awe-inspiring Bible text? The account of creation reveals the power of God’s word as He calls the heavens and the earth into being (Genesis 1, 2; Hebrews 11:3). The Genesis account of creation holds more than just information about the origins of life; it reveals the eternal power and divine nature of a loving and life-giving Creator (Romans 1:20) in His taking the world from a state of chaos, confusion, and emptiness to a state of beauty, order, and purpose. The Genesis account lays a foundation for the entire revelation of God’s redemptive activity through His Son (Hebrews 1:2–3). The Bible reveals the great love and eternal power of God the Creator, who according to His eternal purpose, rescues sinners from death and gives them life and purpose in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:1–10).
