Do you know how the very first man was made? Listen, and you will learn.

In four days, God created so many things. Now there was day and there was night, and there was a beautiful blue sky, and there were oceans and rivers and lakes, and there were grass and plants and trees, and there were the sun, moon and stars. God saw that all He had made was good.

On the fifth day, God spoke again. This time He said, "Let birds of every kind come from the waters to fly above the earth."
***And there WAS!***
The sky was FILLED with robins, and sparrows, and eagles, and blue jays, and ducks, and every kind of bird that could fly.
And God created great whales and filled the waters with every kind of fish and living creature. And God blessed them and told them to keep having more birds and more fish to FILL the sky and the seas. This all happened on the FIFTH day of creation.

Now on the SIXTH day, God commanded the earth to bring forth every kind of cattle and animal imaginable.
***And the earth OBEYED!***
There were tigers, and giraffes, and zebras, and horses, and monkeys, and cows, and bears, and dogs, and cats, and squirrels. There were animals of EVERY kind!
***And God saw that it was GOOD!***

Then God spoke again. This time He said, "Let us make man in our image and let man rule over the fish in the sea, and the birds in the air, and the animals on the land." And it HAPPENED - just like He said. He created the very first MAN.

And God blessed man and told him he could eat the herbs in the field and the fruit on the trees. He gave grass to the animals and the birds to eat. God saw everything that he had made and***it was VERY GOOD!*** That was the end of the SIXTH day of creation. So God finished making the sky and the earth and every living creature to fill the sky, the seas, and the land. And God made man and commanded him to take charge of all the birds, and the fish, and the animals.

HOW did God make man? Oh, that's a WONDERFUL story! The Bible says that God shaped man out of the dust on the ground. Then God BREATHED His own breath right into that first man's nose, and you know what? Right then, that first man came alive. And God named this very first man ADAM.

Then on the SEVENTH day, God ended His work and took a wonderful REST. And God blessed that seventh day and made it HOLY.

CONSIDER THIS: When God said “Let us make man in our image”, It was God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit speaking to each other. God wanted to create man in His own image, which we means man was shaped from the dust of the earth but he became a “LIVING SOUL”, like God. Man received what no other creature received.

TODAY'S HYMN: Words and music by Twila Paris in 1984. Inspiration came from John 1:1. Two verses with refrain.


1. You are Lord of creation and Lord of my life, Lord of the land and the sea.
You were Lord of the heavens before there was time,
And Lord of all lords You will be. REFRAIN
We bow down and we worship You, Lord.
We bow down and we worship You, Lord.
We bow down and we worship You, Lord.
We bow down and we worship YOu, Lord.
Lord of all lords you will be.

2. You are King of creation and King of my life, King of the land and the sea.
You were King of the heavens before there was time,
And King of all kings You will be. REFRAIN
We bow down and we crown You, the KING.
We bow down and we crown You, the KING.
We bow down and we crown You, the KING.
King of all kings You will be!

TODAY’S BLESSING: May God bless us and remind us that whether He send sunshine or rain, it is how we perceive them that counts. Give God all the glory!
