Before the creation, there is the Creator.
He is the chief focus of attention in the Bible’s first chapter.
Wherever we look in Genesis 1, we see the word, God. This is about Him.
Genesis 1 speaks about us. It tells us where we have come from. We have

* Move on from the Bible’s
first chapter. Read the rest of Genesis, the rest of the Old
Testament,the rest of the Bible. What do you find? The Bible is a Book
about God. It’s not only a Book about God. It’s a Book that has been

from all your sins you shall be clean before the Lord" (Leviticus

Through the shed blood of Christ, we have peace with God and eternal
life (Leviticus 17:11; Romans 5:1-2,8-10). We have received new life in
Christ. Now, we are to leave the way of the behind us. We are to live e a
