Lesson 1 - Elementary
"All things were made by him" (John 1:3).
God Lived Always
Before there was an earth, and before there was a man on this earth, God lived. God has power to do all things. All He needs to do is to speak the word and it is done. There are some people who are saying that God did not make the world and the people; but all who believe God, and believe His Bible, know that He made everything, because He said He did. We know that Jesus was there with Him, and the Holy Spirit.
God Made Light
At one time there was darkness in the world and God said: "Let there be light," and there was light. God called the light "Day," and the darkness "Night."
God Made the Sky
God, on the second day, made a beautiful sky and the clouds that carry water to make the flowers and trees and plants grow, so that there would be food for men and animals.
God Made the Land and the Waters
God gathered the water into wide and deep seas and set the dry land in its places. He told the seas that they could come so far and no farther. Then He covered the earth with a lovely green carpet of grass and flowers. God gave man a beautiful place in which to live, but sin has brought a curse upon it.
God Made the Lights
God had already given the earth some light, but on the fourth day He made more light. He made the sun to shine by day and the moon and stars to shine by night.
God Put Living Things in the World
After God had made the world light and had prepared a place for man He put fishes in the seas and birds in the heavens.
God Made Man in His Own Image
God made a good world and then He put a good man in it. God looked at His world and said that it was "good." He made man out of the dust of the earth and breathed life into him. The mountains and oceans and flowers and everything that God made show how wonderful He is, but only people can love.
