God Created the World
There is one God, the Father… and there is one Lord, Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 8:6
BIBLE STORY: GOD CREATED THE WORLD
MAIN POINT: GOD CREATED EVERYTHING FOR HIS GLORY.
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
He said, “Let there be light!” God saw that the light was good. Evening came, and then morning came. That was the first day of creation.
God spoke again: “Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate them.” God called the expanse sky. Evening came, and then morning came. That was the second day of creation.
God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear.” God saw that it was good. Then God said, “Let the earth make plants and trees with fruits and seeds.” Evening came, and then morning came. That was the third day of creation.
Next, God placed lights in the sky. God created the sun to shine during the day and the moon and stars to shine at night. God saw that it was good. Evening came, and then morning came. That was the fourth day of creation.
BIG PICTURE QUESTION:
- Why did God create the world? God created the world for His glory.
FAMILY DISCUSSION STARTERS:
- Can you imagine what it was like for there to only be God?
- Why do you think God decided to create the world? (to show how awesome He is.)
- What are some things God made? (See Genesis 1-2.)
As you are riding in a vehicle, lead children to observe God’s creation around you. Talk about how God’s creation displays His glory. Pray as a family, thanking God for His creation.
