"Maker of Heaven and Earth"

SEPTEMBER 25, 2022

David McNeely, Senior Pastor

Scripture: Various

We believe is more important than I believe.

"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth." -Genesis 1:1

Everything God created was good.

"I form light and create darkness; I make well-being and create calamity; I am the Lord, who does all these things.

“Shower, O heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain down righteousness; let the earth open, that salvation and righteousness may bear fruit; let the earth cause them both to sprout; I the Lord have created it. 9 “Woe to him who strives with him who formed him, a pot among earthen pots! Does the clay say to him who forms it, ‘What are you making?’or ‘Your work has no handles’?" -Isaiah 45:7-9

"For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together." -Colossians 1:16-17

God’s authority:

  1. Absolute
  2. Exclusive
  3. Exhaustive

Discussion Questions:

  1. Why do you think there are different views on creation?  
  2. What should we believe when it comes to God and creation?
  3. What are some of the implications of God having all authority? If God has all authority, what practical difference does that make in our daily lives?
  4. What, if anything, has been convicting in the first three weeks of this series? What has been comforting?
