Genesis Chapter 1 – Creation
I have a beginning, Genesis, which means "birth" or "origin".  God the father is the one who gave us life in the womb of our mother.  Everyone is created in the likeness and image of God.

Genesis 1: 26-27 - "Then God said: "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and the cattle, and over all the wild animals and all the creatures that crawl on the ground." God created man in his image; in the divine image he created him; male and female he created them."

YOU are a unique, one of a kind, an original masterpiece, son or daughter of the most high God, created in his likeness and image. There will never be another like you! No one can do the work that God has called you to do. God Loves you!

Genesis Chapter 3 – The Fall

Genesis 3: 9-10 - The LORD God then called to the man and asked him, "Where are you?" He answered, "I heard you in the garden; but I was afraid, because I was naked, so I hid myself."

Man desired the Knowledge of the difference between good and evil. This knowledge introduced mankind to the Law. We became judges acting like God – judging one another. Great disaster - They realized they were naked and fear entered the world. Death entered the world and everyone dies.

 

Answer the following questions for yourself:

After the fall, what is man's biggest problem?

What is the opposite of Love? (hint: it is not hate)

When is eternity?

If you can answer these questions, you are ready to go onto the next lesson.
