This Is A Story
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
The word Genesis is defined as, “an origin, creation or beginning.” The book of Genesis is an origins story, but also a story of a God of infinite power and might, infinite grace and mercy, and infinite love over all that He has made. While mapping out what this “creation” song would be, I decided not to go in the direction of focusing on all the “stuff” God made (sun, moon, stars, vegetation, animals) and focus more so on the big picture of this book. After God had created the universe, the heavens, and the earth, He was not content. He created man.
“Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
- Genesis 1:26
This is a story about the one true God pouring out His love for mankind even though they
did not deserve it. After man disobeys Him and brings sin into the world, He does not abandon them. Although man murders, destroys, and turns their backs on Him, still He did not erase man from the earth. When man takes matters into his own hands, forsaking God’s plans and timing, God never leaves his side and yet continues to provide. This Is A Story is a song that transcends the book of Genesis and applies to us, here and now.
