And God Sad, ... And It Was So
God creates everything necessary to sustain the life of man even before He creates man. That’s Gospel. That’s love. That’s pure grace. That’s unconditional. There is nothing left for man to do but live in the gracious provision of the Lord. Even the work he is given to do in God’s gracious creation is Gospel because it cannot help but produce good fruit. Man’s work doesn’t create but reaps the harvest of the creation.
Genesis and creation is not just an academic argument, or legalistic exercise. It is fundamental to the Gospel. God speaks and it is so. God gives and we receive.
