First Lines

by Dr. Paul Chappell

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.”

Genesis 1:1–4

The beginning of a book can often tell you a great deal about what you can expect when you read it. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens opens with this sentence: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” For those who prefer a shorter introduction, the first sentence of Moby Dick by Herman Melville is just three words: “Call me Ishmael.”

The Bible starts with the declaration that God preceded everything. The reason that statement comes first is because it is the foundation for everything that follows. God did not get anyone’s permission to create the world. He did it because it was part of His plan and purpose. God did not have to act in response to anyone or anything else. He acted for His glory. “Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him” (Isaiah 43:7). The role of God as the sole mover in creation makes Him the ultimate authority. And the reason so many people try to deny creation is that they do not want to answer to Him. But one day, everyone will.

Today’s Growth Principle: 

God is the source and creator of everything, and as such has complete authority to order our lives.
